​Uploading your presentation:

We strongly recommend not using own computers for presentation. Please note that the time used for connecting own computer will be deducted from the total presentation time.​

Video films in your presentation:
If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session - even after checking it in the Speakers' Ready Room.

Presentation duration: 
The duration of your presentation is indicated in the interactive scientific program. Please note that your presentation time includes time for questions and answers. Therefore, you are asked to plan your presentation accordingly and leave 2-3 minutes for questions at the end of your presentation. It is possible that there will not be sufficient time for questions after your presentation. Please follow the instructions of the session Chairpersons.

​CME compliance: 
Oral presenters are required to use a Disclosure Slide as the second slide of their presentation. The template can be downloaded here​.

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 Speakers' Ready Room:
1. 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).
