Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Format

  • Please use Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 (*.ppt or .pptx) to guarantee your presentation will open successfully on an on-site PC. OpenOffice/LibreOffice Impress, PREZI or Adobe PDF presentations would be accepted as well.
  • If you use MS PowerPoint, we recommend that you save your PowerPoint presentation using .ppt- or .pptx-format and not .pps or .ppsx.
  • All screens in the session rooms are in 16:9 aspect ratio. However, 4:3 can also be used; in this instance the image will show up on screen with black bars left and right.

  • Please use high contrast lettering, fonts with a minimum size of 16pt, and high contrast layouts, for example light text on a dark background.
  • Videos from PowerPoint can be played in all rooms but these would need to be tested in the Speakers Service Centre once they have been transferred to the technician.


  • JPG images are the preferred file format for inserted images.
  • GIF, TIF or BMP formats will be accepted as well.
  • Images inserted into PowerPoint are embedded into the presentations. A picture resolution between 72 and 200 dpi is sufficient. Bigger files would only increase the file size of your presentation.
  • The maximum file size of images should not exceed 250KBytes.

 Movies / Videos

  • Because of the wide variety of video formats available, support cannot be provided for embedded videos in your presentation; please test your presentation on the on-site PC several hours before your presentation. Generally, the MPEG-4 and WMV format should work with no difficulties.
  • Movies or videos that require additional reading or projection equipment will not be accepted.


  • Only fonts which are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows 10 will be available (English version of Windows). Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause the wrong formatting of your presentation.
  • Suggested fonts: Arial, Tahoma, Calibri
  • If you must use different fonts, these must be embedded into your presentation.

 Transfer of your Presentation

  • Please submit your presentation to the Speaker Service Centre using a USB memory stick.
  • Save all files associated with your presentation (PowerPoint file, movie/video files etc.) to one folder/location.
  • The conference staff will transfer your presentation from the Speaker Service Centre to the corresponding session room. You will find your presentation on the laptop (on the lectern) in your session room.
  • In the event that you have more than one presentation during the conference, kindly save the different presentations in different folders and name them clearly to avoid any on-site misunderstandings and problems.
  • Always make a backup copy of your presentation(s) and all associated files and save them on a separate portable medium.

Other Information
