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 a USB flash disc with you or even transparencies … just in case.

Guidelines for presentations

The actual time of your session will be confirmed, but we recommend that you prepare a 20 minute presentation, which will allow for a further 5 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 time frame of your speech and any instructions given by the session chair.

Room set up

The conference will provide presentation rooms with a data projector, overhead projector, computer (PC with CD-ROM drive, Windows, MS Office, incl. PowerPoint, Internet connection).

On-site technicians will be available to troubleshoot any equipment problems you may have. Using your own notebook is unfortunately not possible.


There will be a short poster presentation of each author (cca 3 minutes). Of course, there is also the possibility for authors to be present at poster exhibition during whole conference.

Discussion with poster authors is planned during the coffee break after session Information Resources: Three Different Ways to Cope with (on May 26 at 10:50 a.m. to 11:10 a.m.).
