Day Time

Sunday 14 April 07:00 – 14:00

Technicians will be available to assist speakers during the above hours.

Presentation technology

The lecture halls will be equipped with a laptop and data projector. To ensure high service quality and a nearly seamless transition between different talks and speakers, a network-based presentation system will be used along with a conference specific interface.

Personal notebooks cannot be connected in the lecture halls.

Presentation format

Only presentations in MS-PowerPoint 2013 or earlier versions (*.ppt and *.pptx) will be accepted.

The screen ratio is 16:9 in landscape format.

Presentations attached to e-mails cannot be processed. If you are using PowerPoint 2007 or older versions, it is essential to upload your video files as they cannot be embedded into the presentation. All uploaded material will pass through a technical verification and detailed online support is available during the upload process.

You may send additional files, make changes to files sent and download files again from any computer you use at any time.

Once on-site, you may check, change or upload your presentation in the speakers’ ready room at least 3 hours before the start of the session. Our staff, together with you, will take a final look at your material and help you upload it.

For technical questions related to your presentation contact:

It is mandatory that all oral presenters display a disclosure slide as the first slide in their presentation. During the presentation upload process, you will be required to enter your disclosures in the system. The disclosure slide will be automatically generated and added to your presentation. If you have nothing to disclose, this slide will automatically indicate “nothing to disclose”. All conflict of interest must be disclosed, not only the ones related to the presentation.
