https://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=164

Topics and themes
Any Keynote and PowerPoint themes must be saved within the presentation, because the computers in the halls are not connected to the Internet.

Note
Avi and mov files can contain supported extensions such as divx, xvid, wmv, h264, h265, mpg, etc. and non-supported file extensions such as avchd, theora, soreson, ffmpegX, isquint, Avidemux etc….

The free software Any Video Converter (https://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/) converts movie into wmv, mpg or divx files.

File saving
Movie files and/or images must be saved in the same directory containing in the presentation directory. File *.ppt with linked video may cause display problems even after reintegration.


Slide Center

To ensure the smoothest possible running of all presentations, presenters are kindly requested to attend the Slide Center as indicated hereafter:

  • 2 hours prior to session: standard presentations
  • 3 hours prior to session: presentations with animations, transactions and graphics, presentations with movie files,
  • 6 hours prior to session: presentations with non-standard movie files (mov, avi etc.)


Advance presentation upload

There is a possibility to upload your presentation still before the congress. Advance uploading is not compulsory but it is a comfortable way to check in your presentations. Upload credentials were sent in email to each presenter.

Even if you have uploaded your presentation earlier please double check it on site in the Slide Center.

E-poster sessions

The electronic posters will be available for consultation during each day of the congress. They will be displayed on 55-inch multitouch monitors, oriented horizontally (landscape mode), located in the Foyer.

Each screen represents a search and display station, "Google-style," through which it will be possible to:

  • Search, simply by typing on the screen, for the desired contribution using keywords such as author's last name or poster ID.
  • View the desired contribution
  • Zoom in to see the details

Author should prepare their own contribution in a form of a single page .pdf file, including their own ID, name, and surname. The resolution in pixels should be 1920x1080 (horizontal / landscape / widescreen), with a maximum recommended size of 300 MB.

If the contribution is created with Microsoft PowerPoint, the slide size should be 33.87 cm x 19.05 cm in widescreen format (horizontal / landscape). Please note that the file will be opened through a browser that adjusts the viewing scale to the screen. Therefore, the correct format remains the horizontal 16/9 widescreen.

Different formats will still be viewable, but they will simply use the display surface less effectively, which will have a horizontal (landscape) orientation. The most significant test is: "Does the file display on my screen?" Consider that if your .pdf or .pptx is difficult to read on a small screen, it will be more readable on a larger screen. If it is legible on your computer, it will be even more so on the V-POSTER system.

Once you have prepared the pdf or pptx file of your poster, zoom in on the details that you want to be visible. If you can view them correctly on your device, they will be displayed correctly on the V-POSTER system.

E-posters can include text, figures, and images, but not sound or videos.


Upload your E-poster file

Please upload your e-poster presentation file latest till 10 May 2023 (extended). Upload instructionos were sent in email to each e-poster presenter.
