Good to know


Instruction for oral presentations - AULA

Please check the programme for the position (available after 2nd September) and length of your presentation (keynote lecture 30 min + 10 min discussion; oral presentation 15 min + 5 min discussion). Make sure that you talk is upload as early as possible - in the morning or during the coffee breaks. Speakers are requested to hand over their files on a USB stick to the organizing team members at the conference laptop in the lecture hall = aula. Only Powerpoint for Windows files will be accepted. We wish to discourage you from using your own laptop computers, as connecting and disconnecting can be time-consuming and error-prone.

If your talk has special file formats (e.g. videos or Apple presentations) that require the connection of your own computer, please approach one of our team members well before you speach to test the compatibility with the projector.
