TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRESENTING AUTHORS

ORAL PRESENTATIONS

Length: 20 minutes (15 minutes talk + 5 minutes discussion)
Format: Microsoft PowerPoint (a version compatible with Office 2003 and Windows XP)
Uploading time: uploading talks from a USB stick or CD is suggested to be completed on the day prior to the talk at the speakers’ room.
Late speakers can upload their files directly in the lecture room latest 20 minutes before the start of the session. (A technician will be present in the room.)
For safety reasons presentations can also be sent prior to the conference to the e-mail address hoholr@diamond-congress.hu.

With any special questions concerning the information technology points of the ORAL presentations please contact Dr. György A. Lovas, IT manager of the Oral sessions (e-mail: lovas@ludens.elte.hu), as soon as possible, but not later than August 31, 2009.
Notes (oral presentations):

1) Presentations containing special features (movies, animations etc.) should be checked due time prior to the session (possibly by in-advance submission and/or immediate checking on registration).
2) Speakers wishing to present their talks from their own Apple Computer should ensure that their machine has got the appropriate VGA connector and it will work appropriately with the data projector at the conference site.
3) Unless special technical conditions require, it is not possible to present talks using a speaker’s PC laptop, as this disrupts the smooth running of the session.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

Posters must be no larger than 1 m wide x 2 m high.
Pins to attach each poster to the board will be supplied.
Posters will be on display during the whole conference.
Poster put up: Posters can be put up on the assigned board during the registration period: Monday, 1 pm – 9 pm; Tuesday 8 am – 8.45 am.
