You will be sent login details to access and complete a Recording and Publication Consent Form. In order for us to use a recording of your presentation, we need you to complete this form.

Data Presentation

If you are using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other PC-based application), please note that you have to deliver it on a USB Memory stick to one of the technicians at the session Hall at least 1 hour before the start of your session.

Please note that only symposium computer is used in the session hall. This is supplied with Office 2019 (at least) and the native ratio of the projection on the screen in the hall is 16:9. The Symposium will not be able to support lecture slides presented on personal computers.

If you include video clips in your PowerPoint presentation, check with the technician if the sound and picture from the video are transmitted well to avoid technical issues.

Important Note for Macintosh Users

To use MAC presentations on a PC compatible symposium computer, please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before taking it to the room:

  1. Convert it to PowerPoint or PDF.
  2. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (Special characters might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint-based PC).
  3. Insert the images as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
