Oral Presentation - Guidelines

IMPORTANT! During the presentation there will be a timer informing about the remaining time for presentation.

 

Please use the IHS 2020 Presentation Template for your lecture.

Oral lectures should not exceed 10 minutes including time for discussion (8 minutes lecture and 2 minutes for Q+A).

Presentations should be in 16:9 ratio and Movies should be in WMV/ MP4 format.

PPT must be of 9 slides maximum:

First slide – Lecture’ title, Second slide – Statement Conflict of Interest, and 7 slides with content.

Lecture halls will be equipped with projector, screen and computer compatible with at least Windows 7 and Office 2015.

For your convenience, there will be a Speaker Preview Room where you will be able to set up your PowerPoint presentation prior to your talk.

It will not be possible to use a personal laptop. Speakers are required to bring their presentation on a Memory Stick (using the computer’s USB port) and load it in the Speaker Preview Room, at least 1 hour before the beginning of the session.

The Speaker Preview Room will be open each day from 07:45 until the end of sessions.

 

Important note for Macintosh users:


In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer, please note the following instructions while preparing your presentation prior its uploading in the Speaker Preview Room, to avoid last minute problems of incompatibility:

 

  • 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).
