PowerPoint Instructions

  • Please use the Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2007 or 2010* (*.ppt) or (*pptx), or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) to guarantee they will open successfully on an on-site PC.
  • We recommend you to save your PowerPoint presentation using PPT(X) format instead of PPS
  • All the screens will have the format ratio 16:9. We suggest to all authors to prepare their presentation in the same format – 16:9. Please take this as a strong suggestion. The presentations in the 4:3 ratio can be also used, however the ratio 16:9 will better fit to the screens.
  • Please note that we cannot guarantee the quality of MacIntosh-based presentations, please check in advance (2 hours before your session starts) their Windows compatibility
