Instructions for speakers
ALL accepted abstracts - including the ones selected to give a short talk - are expected to be presented as posters.

Please note that the EBSA 2015 Congress Team will use a centralized management system for all presentations and will provide laptops in all lecture halls. We would very much appreciate if you could make use of these laptops to minimize delays and to avoid technical interruptions. Technical staff is permanently available in the Media Check to assist you.

We thank you very much in advance for your cooperation!

Please consider the information provided below when preparing your lecture. Speakers should be aware of the time limit and are kindly asked to keep the time of their presentations.

Media Check (Speakers room)
The Media Check will be located in a separate room next to the registration desk in the foyer of the hall level of the ICCD. Technical support staff will be present to assist speakers in uploading their presentations and solving technical issues. Furthermore, the speakers can review their presentations and can implement last-minute changes, if required.

Presentation time
Short talks  -  Speaking time is 10 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.
Invited talks  -  Speaking time is 20 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.
COST Speakers  -  Speaking time is 15 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.

Presentation upload
For using the centralized presentation management system, all presentations need to be transferred to this system before the beginning of each session. Therefore, all speakers are requested to upload them on-site at the "Media Check" at least 2 hours before the beginning of their session or the day before, if possible.

All presentations need to be submitted to the Media Check via CD ROM (CD-R/RW), DVD-ROM (DVD-R/RW) or USB memory stick. All files associated with one presentation (PowerPoint file, movie files etc.)  should be saved to the same folder/location. We recommend saving videos and graphics/pictures separately on a storage medium - in case of problems, the originals can be re-inserted on-site at the Media Check.

Speakers using MacBooks and/or the Keynote presentation software are kindly requested to export their presentation to the PowerPoint format. In case of problems, the Media Check staff will be glad to assist you in converting your files to the requested format. 

Speakers using their own laptop are kindly asked to proceed to the Media Check at least 2 hours before the beginning of their session or the day before in order to clear the technical prerequisites with the technicians and to coordinate the processes involved.

Technical equipment in the session rooms/lecture halls
Each session room is equipped with data projector, lectern, microphone, notebook and remote control incl. laser pointer. The presentations will be transferred to the corresponding session rooms automatically and will be accessible at the installed presentation laptop. 

Changing slides will be controlled by each speaker individually through the remote control. All speakers are kindly asked to be at the session room at least 10 minutes before the session starts to meet the chair and familiarize with the technical equipment.

Presentation format
All presentations will be displayed at 1024x768 pixel resolution (landscape format). Presentations should be created as a PDF document or using Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2010 (*.ppt/*.pptx), OpenOffice Impress 1.0-4.0 or PREZI to guarantee it can be opened properly on an on-site PC. If MS PowerPoint is used, we recommend to save the presentation to *.ppt/pptx format and not *.pps/ppsx.

Videos
Due to the variety of video formats, support cannot be guaranteed for embedded videos in every case. Hence, we recommend reviewing presentations on-site at the Media Check well in advance of the scheduled presentation time.
Generally, the WMV and MPEG-4 format should work without difficulties. The file size should not exceed 150 MB. Videos that require additional reading or projection equipment (e.g. VHS cassettes, Blu-Rays Discs) will not be accepted.
