Oral presentation of the papers
Speakers can use their own device or the laptop available in the lecture rooms on which Microsoft Power Point 2007 and Acrobat Reader XI are installed. Anyway we strongly suggest the lecturers to upload their presentation on the Symposium laptop in order to minimize the dead times between each presentation. Regardless of the hardware target, no audio data is allowed.
Speakers who will use the Symposium provided hardware, have to prepare their presentation in either pdf or ppt(x) format. Moreover the presentation file will have to be uploaded, at least 30 minutes before the start of the lecture session in which the presentation is scheduled, at the “Presentation Upload Point”. All the presentation files will be deleted at the end of the session and no copy will be saved. It is highly recommended to include in the name of the presentation files the linked paper ID, i.e. EMD9765.pptx would be an appropriate filename.
Speakers who will use their own device for the presentation have to provide the proper video adapter in order to connect their system video output to the VGA video projector input. A HDMI to VGA adapter and a VGA to VGA cable are provided.
The time scheduled for each presentation is about 15 min. Questions to the authors will be submitted at the end of each presentation or at the end of the session, according to the Chairman guidelines.
Remote presentation of the papers
A remote presentation is an oral presentation performed over a remote connection. The authors will have to prepare their presentation in Powerpoint or equivalent software and install on their system Skype™.
The presentation process will then be carried out by connecting to the Symposium Skype account and activating the Skype “Sharing Desktop” mode.
By the way, the authors will be contacted by the Speedam secretariat and helped in configuring their system for a flawless remote presentation.
Poster presentation of the papers
All the posters should be in A0 format (84 cm x 120 cm) and only vertically oriented. No specific guidelines are provided for the preparation of the poster. Speedam organizers suggest only to clearly show the title (minimum 72 pt) and authors name + affiliation (minimum 48 pt) and to use at least a 24 pt font for the body-text and figure captions. Minimum one author per paper has to be present during the dialogue session (75 – 90 min). Posters have to be placed in the reserved space at least 30 minutes before the start of the session. In the Poster Area authors will find everything they need to fix the posters on the provided supports. Authors are kindly asked to remove their posters at the end of the dialogue session.
