Some of the sessions will be held in large rooms. Please consider this when preparing your PowerPoint presentation and use a design / size of the text and images that is readily appreciated and can be seen from a distance as well. The media check and all rooms will be equipped with Microsoft Windows based PCs. Macintosh presentations (PowerPoint and Keynote) will be converted to Windows PowerPoint presentations. Mac users should avoid using exclusive Mac fonts and animations while creating their presentations.
The halls in the Congress Centre are equipped with notebooks/laptops and all presenters are encouraged to project data directly from this equipment. Therefore, please bring your presentation in PC-compatible format (PowerPoint recommended) on a USB stick no later than 90 minutes prior to your presentation to the Speakers Centre. Presentations from a personal notebook/laptop are not possible. It will not be possible to use traditional slides in trays or magazines.
Guidelines to produce Projection Material
Projection material should be regarded as a supplement to the spoken word. You should therefore not use more than 1 or 2 slides per minute. For optimal comprehension of each slide, keep the information short and clear.
We recommend you use no more than 7 lines of text with 5 or 6 words per line and to sparingly use bold and italic styles. It is also recommended to insert spaces to clearly separate sections and when using bullets, please choose dashes, stars, or dots. When presenting figures, tracings, tables, or other illustrations, one or two clear graphical events per slide is recommended to ensure that they can be appreciated from a distance.
We recommend that PC presentations (PC charts) are prepared in landscape format in 16:9. To ensure that the PC charts on the screen are legible from the seats in the very back of the hall, it is essential to use the following font sizes:
Headers: bold, font size 40
Sub-headings: bold, font size 32 or 36
Text and figures: normal, font size 24 or 28
Choose a dark background and a light font or a light background and dark font. If you use colors for text and graphics, please ensure they are strong colors that stand out from each other.
For your PC presentation, we recommend you use Microsoft PowerPoint. The animation feature will help you bring your text to life and increase the audience’s attention.
