Presentation guidelines

Each presentation is allocated 20 minutes. To keep the sessions running smoothly, we would very much appreciate it if the following rules are followed:

  • The presenters should arrive in the room of the session at least 10 minutes prior to the session start and identify themselves to the session chair.
  • The presenters should bring their presentations in PDF format on a USB drive for loading onto the conference laptop located in the session room. Conference volunteers and the session chair will be in the room to assist with this.
  • We also provide the option to submit the pdf file of your presentation to the speakers’ assistance desk or directly or via email to [email protected] before the end of the previous day.
  • The file name of each presentation should start with the session and speech code according to the technical program, followed by the presenter's surname (e.g. MO1.R9.3 - Surname).
  • Presenters can also use their own laptop, but we ask that they join at least 15 minutes in advance in the presentation room to make sure that the projection works.  The laptop needs to have an HDMI connector (or your own adapter).
  • Presentations are 20 minutes per paper, including time for a short question-and-answer part at the end of the presentation. Presenters will be cut if they exceed the allowed time. The session chair will give warnings on the remaining time, and the presenters are asked to look for these warnings.
  • Each presentation has its own time slot and cannot be changed or shifted. 

All presentation rooms are equipped with a laptop, a microphone and a wireless slide changer with a laser point.
