Oral sessions will be held from Wednesday, 21 August to Friday, 23 August in the function rooms on the level 2 and 3 of the Plaza Athenee.
Each presenter is allotted 12 minutes for verbal presentation, followed by a 3-minute question and answer period.
Preparation of your presentation:
1. Data presentation
If using a PowerPoint (or any other computer) presentation, please note you need to send by email or bring on a CD, or a DVD or on a “disk on key” Memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it on one of the conference’s computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room or Japan Room (Level 2), at least 1 day before the start of the session. You may supply your own laptop computer as a back-up.
If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session – even after checking it in the Speakers’ Ready Room or Japan Room.
Please note that the conference computers in the session halls are being supplied with Windows XP and Office XP (at least).
Important note for Macintosh users
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers’ Ready Room:
- Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint based PC).
- Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint-based PC).
- Use a common movie format, such as AVI, MPG and WMV (MOV files from QuickTime will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
You may use your own Macintosh laptop computer as a back-up. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive and later on in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
If you need to use a video for your presentation (VHS multi-system format or DVD), please contact the technician at the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive to confirm availability in the session hall where your lecture is taking place.
Please note that VHS Video projection, 35 mm’ slide projection and overhead projection (projection of transparencies) will not be available.
