How to prepare presentation

PowerPoint Instructions

Use the Microsoft PowerPoint 97–2007, 2010* or 2013* (*.ppt) or (*pptx) to guarantee they will work properly on an on-site PC.

Prepare presentation in 16:9 format (screen are in format 16:9). We recommend you to save your PowerPoint presentation using PPT(X) format instead of PPS.

Please keep on mind that organizer cannot guarantee the quality of Macintosh-based presen­ta­tions; so check in advance (3 hours before your session starts) their Windows compatibility.

Note the Presentation System used during the Conference also supports the PDF presentations.

Pictures/Videos

JPG images are the preferred file format for inserted images. GIF, PNG or BMP formats will be accepted as well. Images inserted into PowerPoint are embedded into the presentations. Images that are created at a dpi setting higher than 300 dpi are not necessary and will only increase the file size of the presentation. Try to avoid overloading the presentation with unnecessary images. In case of any videos in the presentation - test your presentation with the on-site PC several hours before the presentation. Generally, WMV and AVI format should work with no difficulties.

Fonts

Only fonts included in the basic installation of MS-Windows are available (English version of Windows). Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause the wrong layout/style of the presentation. Suggested fonts are: Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma, and Calibri. If you insist on using different fonts, these must be embedded into the presentation by choosing the right option when saving the presentation, see details below:

  • Click on “File”, then “Save As”
  • Check the “Tools” menu and select “Embed True Type Fonts”
