Please note that speakers and chairs are required to present at the beginning of their presentation(s) a disclosure slide which presents their conflicts of interest. A template for presenters and moderators has been prepared and will be available on the Speaker Ready Room computers. Please note that the disclosure slide is requested even though there is no conflict to declare.
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 Speaker 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 make sure to provide a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter (Dongle). Please visit the Speaker Ready Room to check your presentation and advise the staff of your intent to use your own laptop. Please arrive at the Plenary room at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your session to plug in your laptop and check your presentation on the projection system.
