Welcome to the presenters support page for INFORUM 2005. We are glad to have you participate in this year’s conference. The documents below provide information that will assist presenters in preparing for the conference. Check often for additional information as it develops.
If you need assistance before and during the conference please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Jana Machonska, the conference co-ordinator, at +420 222 231 212 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The full-text of your paper will be published on the INFORUM 2005 website.
Paper length: 3-15 pages + annexes
Paper & speech language: English (or Czech)
Fulltext formats: DOC (Word 95/97/2000), RTF or PDF, to be sent by e-mail or on a floppy disk by mail.
The actual time of your session will be confirmed, but we recommend that you prepare a 15 minute presentation, which will allow for a further 5-10 minutes of Q & A at the end of your allocated time. During the break before your speech please do not forget to check your pre-installed presentation in the auditorium and get in touch with your session chairman. Conference session timing is always crucial. Therefore you are kindly asked to arrive well before your session begins and especially to strictly adhere to the timeframe of your speech and any instructions given by the session chair.
The preferred way is to send us a copy of your PowerPoint presentation latest by May 20th (preferably earlier) by e-mail to email@example.com (please use WinZip to compress the file, do not forget to save fonts in case you use some more special ones). This will allow us to check it and pre-install it to the presentation server. However, please do not forget to take also a backup copy on floppy (we recommend to make two copies) or on a CD-R disk or on a USB flash disc with you or even transparencies … just in case.
The conference will provide presentation rooms with a data projector, screen, computer with mouse (PC with CD-ROM drive, Windows, Office XP (incl. PowerPoint), Netscape, MS Internet Explorer – your presentation will be preinstalled there and tested jointly with you), wired microphone and presenter’s table. Live Internet connection will be available during all sessions. The University of Economics has a good connectivity, however, we still recommend to have an offline backup with you (downloaded html pages or Lotus Screencam captured files on floppies or CD-R). On-site technicians will be available to troubleshoot any equipment problems you may have.
It is also possible to use your own notebook, however, there may always be a compatibility problem with the datashow and it would also need much more time for installation, checking and interconnection during the conference session. Therefore we do not prefer this option.
Posters will remain on display throught the conference in the New Auditorium and authors will be with their posters to discuss them with others during coffee and lunch breaks or at other times during the conference.
Posters are expected to be 80 cm x 110 cm (width x height). Materials for putting posters on the boards will be available in the poster area.
Acceptance of your proposal does not automatically register you as a conference participant. Please be sure to complete and return your personal conference registration form to us as soon as possible. You can register to all conference sessions, workshops and social events free of charge as an VIP participant.
You are cordially invited to join the conference committee members for lunch. Lunch will be provided in the Academic Club at the University of Economics (apart from conference attendees), we will inform you about its location at the Registration Desk.
Last but not least you are also invited to the INFOCONCERT and INFOPARTY – the INFORUM social events on Wednesday May 25th at 8.p.m in the Klementinum Palace of the Czech National Library.
There are many hotels of various classes in Prague and the public transport is quite effective so please do not hesitate to arrange your accommodation according to your preferences.
Upon arrival at the conference, check in at the registration desk and confirm the time and location of your session.
