Oral presentations

In order to prepare your presentation in best possible way we kindly ask that you read the instructions and guidelines below carefully.


The session rooms are equipped with:

  • Laptop
  • Beamer
  • Microphone (big session rooms only)


Please use PowerPoint or PDF to guarantee your presentation will open successfully on an on-site PC. Please use high contrast lettering and fonts with a minimum size of 16pt and high contrast layouts like light text on dark colours.


Because of the many different video formats support cannot be provided for embedded videos in your presentation. Please test your presentation with the on-site PC before your presentation.

Movies or videos that require additional reading or projection equipment will not be accepted.


Only fonts which are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows 7 will be available. Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause the wrong layout / style of your presentation.

Suggested fonts: Arial, Tahoma. If you must use different fonts, these must be embedded into your presentation.


Kindly be at the session room at least 10 minutes before the session starts to meet the chair and familiarize yourself with the technical and other equipment. Using your own laptop for presentation is not possible.

Bring a USB memory stick with your presentation to put it on the computer in your session room at least 10 minutes before the session starts.

Presentations may not last longer than 12 minutes, except for those who made another agreement with their session chair.
