- Guidelines for authors
Speakers are requested to bring their presentation files on a flash drive (USB memory stick) to the Preview Room.
All presentations will be sent directly to the lecture room through the internal computer network. We kindly ask all authors not to come with their own computers into the lecture room at the last minute. Use of your own computer is not possible. All presentations must be downloaded in the Speakers’ preview room beforehand.
The speakers are entirely responsible for the presentation content (order, graphics etc…). All presentations and questions must be delivered in English, as English is the official language of the symposium. Time reserved for scientific presentation is 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion. Speakers are requested not to exceed the allocated time. The time schedule will be strictly followed due to the nature of the congress program.
Please visit the Speakers’ preview room (Business Center -1 floor) at least 4 hours in advance of your scheduled session, or the day before, if the presentation is in one of the morning sessions.
Mac OS X presentations will be uploaded to the meeting computer system as well. There will be staff members available to help preparing and validating the presentations.Presentation format
