Guidelines for presentations
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 16th (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.
Room set up
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 (in Auditorium D only), 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.
