Presentation Guidelines



  • All presenters must provide their presentation file(s) in the Speaker Preview Room at least 2 hours prior to their session time in order to upload their presentation.
  • The Speaker Preview Room will be networked with the session rooms, which means your presentation will be automatically distributed to your session hall once it is uploaded in the Speaker Preview Room.
  • Presentations will not be accepted directly in the session hall for uploading but in speaker preview room. There is no facility to connect laptops or other devices in the session halls, so presentations must be uploaded in advance.
  • All presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint in 16:9 ratio. Keynote files and other file formats are not supported.
  • Please note that the “Presenter View” is not available. If you need your notes, please bring them on paper.
  • Please proceed to your meeting room 10 minutes before session start time in order to introduce yourself to the session chair and to familiarize yourself with the set-up.
  • We are on a tight schedule. Please make sure to adhere to your allotted speaking time!
