Oral presentations have a duration of 10 minutes, followed by 2 minutes of Q&A.
At the parallel session: Please present yourself to the Session Chair in advance of the session.
Please prepare your talk such that you will end on time. Session chairs will be advised to keep a strict timing.
Your presentations (Microsoft Powerpoint or Adobe PDF) are absolutely needed. Speakers have to use their own notebook or other media device with very stable internet connection, but they have to test if the connection online with the Zoom Meeting works correctly well before the session begins. If you plan to present a video or show any demos, it may be advisable to test it first for the video screen and audio playback so that it can work as it should be.
Microsoft PowerPoint and Presentation Tips
Slides should be readable to the unaided eye.
Format: The best use of the given presentation space (screen) can be achieved by presenting in 16:9.
Fonts: Widely used sans serif fonts such as Arial or Times New Roman are recommended for clarity and compatibility. Light colored text on a dark background is advised. Avoid using red or green.
Embedding media: PowerPoint embeds image files directly into the file when you save them, while video files are not embedded. Only a link is made to the video file. Copy the video clips you want to insert into the same folder as the PowerPoint file. This will eliminate the problem of PowerPoint losing the link to the file.
Streaming: If you want to stream media, it is advised to use local playback instead, as sufficient speed of the WiFi connection cannot be guaranteed at all times.
Important: Prepare your presentation as a single file to run on a PC, as a Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation format file (in ppt or pptx file type). Please send your presentation file in advance before November 10, 2020 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
