PowerPoint presentation tips
  • Speakers must adhere strictly to the scheduled times according the programme.
  • Only computer projection will be available. No overhead or slide projectors will be available in meeting rooms, and it will not be possible to use personal laptops.
  • Speakers are kindly requested to use PowerPoint (Office 03/07, Windows or Mac). The uploading of DVD movies is NOT supported.
  • We recommend using ".gif" and ".jpg" formats for images. Other types of extension will be accepted, provided that they are recognised by PowerPoint.
    MPEG2 is the preferred format for embedded movies, but *.avi, *.wmv are also accepted. If Codecs are used, the Code package DIVx in the current version should be chosen. This can be found at www.divx.com. Confirm that all the necessary files are in the SAME FOLDER as your presentation.
  • Use large fonts (the minimum font size should be 18 points). If you cannot fit all your subjects on a slide without moving to a smaller font, break the points up onto separate slides. Sans serif fonts are recommended.
  • Confirm that your presentation contains only standard fonts. For cross-platform compatibility, the use of Times Roman, Arial, Verdana is advised. Some other fonts may not transfer properly from your computer to the system used for presentation.
  • Limit each slide to one main idea with three to six points. More than six points (bullets) and your audience will have difficulty reading the slide. 7-10 slides for a seven-minute free paper presentation and e-poster; max. 5 slides for a three-minute free paper presentation.
The use of CD-Rom's, USB pens or memory sticks is advisable to download presentations easily at the AV Preview Centre.
