Please take a few minutes of your time to read the following guidelines which will present you the on-site organization of the Conference for the smooth running of the sessions.

In order to match with the most recent technology, the Conference will be equipped with a single data projector for computer assisted presentations (ie. Powerpoint).

For the general organisation, after having picked-up their badge at the Registration desk, each speaker should go to the Speakers’ corner (follow signs on site).

All speakers are kindly asked to verify in the online programme the time of their presentation has not changed.

It is advisable for each speaker to be already present in the session hall 15 minutes before the beginning of his session.

  • Please, follow strictly the instructions of the Chairman, especially with regard to the time allotted to the speech: do not go over the time limit
  • Your oral presentation is scheduled for 15 minutes
  • Remember to speak directly into the microphone
  • You will find a laser pointer on the lectern to help you pointing out your slides if necessary. Please do not leave with it!

For your computer assisted presentation (Power-Point style)

  • To avoid delays caused by switching computers at the platform, booting-up computers and potential compatibility problems, the Organizing Committee has made available the standard A/V system used in the convention sector. There will be a master computer to ensure smooth transition between speakers and appropriate audiovisual technical support.
  • The Organisers request that speakers do not plan on connecting their laptop to the Conference centre projector.

Depositing a file

  • Your computer file must be handed over to the personnel of the Speakers‘ corner either with a CD or a memory stick, as far in advance as possible and TWO hours BEFORE the beginning of each session AT THE LATEST. (The presentation for an early morning session should be handed over the evening before).
  • In the Speakers’ corner you will be assisted by a technician who will help you to download your presentation to the internal network. You will also be able to review your presentation and to verify that it has been transferred correctly to the network.

In the session hall

  • Your presentation will be sent directly to the meeting room.
  • A hostess in the meeting room will then point out your presentation on the screen of the computer positioned on the lectern, a few seconds before your turn.
