Data Presentations
PC computers will be available for oral presentations in the session hall. The Conference PCs are equipped with Windows 7 and Office 2013. 
If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF), please bring it on a CD, a DVD or on a “disk on key” / USB memory stick (using the USB port in the computer). 
Please provide the A/V assistant in your designated session hall, your presentation, at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. The A/V assistant will upload your presentation onto the Conference computer. 
Alternatively, you may use your own laptop computer. In such a case, please make sure that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to test it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the session.  
 
Notes for Macintosh users 
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer, you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, prior to uploading it onto the Conference computer in the designated session halll: 
1. 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). 
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC). 
 
Alternatively, you may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please ensure that you provide it with a VGA adaptor for external signal. Additionally, we kindly ask that you test your laptop compatibility with the projection equipment, located in the designated session hall. We suggest you do so during the coffee or lunch break, prior to your session and at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the session.  
Important: If using your own laptop, please make sure to bring your presentation also on a “disk on key” / USB memory stick (using the USB port in the computer).
