Guidelines for oral presentations
Organizers are using Preseria Presentation Software to manage all presentation files. For your presentation, we will provide a microphone, a wireless remote with laser pointer, laptop computer (with Windows 10 operating system), and a digital projector in each room. Speakers are required to use the computer provided as there will not be sufficient time to switch computers between speakers. Because of the time needed to download and organize presentations on these computers, we ask that you upload your presentation files as soon as possible. Presentations formatted for widescreen (16:9) or standard (4:3) dimensions are acceptable, but we recommend using widescreen. All presentations must be in one of the following file formats:
PowerPoint (media and special fonts must be embedded)PDFVideos
For those presenting PowerPoints with media, we recommend you take a look at this page: "Tips for improving audio and video playback and compatibility".
All presentation files must be uploaded to Preseria no later than one full day (24h) ahead of your talk. To upload your files, please click on the "Register / Login" button above. You will be taken to a registration page where you will be asked to create a password for your Preseria account. If you are already registered, you will be taken to the login page.
If you wish to modify your presentation after uploading, please edit the document on your own computer, log back in, and upload your new version using the same filename. This way we will always have your latest presentation ready.
If you have more than one presentation, when you log in to the Preseria website, you will find links corresponding to the times for all of your presentations. Please be sure that you upload the correct file to the corresponding time slot, or it will not be available at the time you are scheduled to present.
If you have trouble submitting your presentation to the Preseria system, please contact email@example.com. Other questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
