The presentation for an early morning session must be handed over the day before. In the Slide Preview Room, you will be assisted by the technician, who will help you to download your presentation to the intranet. You will also be able to review your presentation and to verify that it has been transferred correctly to the network.
Slide Preview room will be available in the following times:
Thursday: 8:00 – 17:30
Friday: 8:00 – 17:30

In the lecture room
Your presentation will be transferred directly to the lecture room through the intranet. Once the presentation is launched on the computer in the respective lecture room, you will advance your own slideshow using the remote control. All speakers are requested to be present in the lecture room 10 minutes before the session starts to meet with the session chair. Please, do not come at the last minute with your own computer into the lecture room: you will NOT BE ABLE to connect it. All presentations must be downloaded in the SLIDE PREVIEW ROOM beforehand.
If any problems occur, there will be assisting staff in each lecture room.
