All presentations will be oral, in English. Morning technical sessions will last 2 hours, afternoon technical sessions will last 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Plenary and Semi-Plenary presentations will last 40 minutes. Regular presentations will last 18 minutes. Time includes Q&A.
The conference will not provide computers for presentations.
All presentations will need to be made with the presenter's laptop computer using an LCD projector. You are kindly requested to test your laptop with the projector in your session room during the coffee-break before your presentation.
No overhead projectors will be provided, therefore no presentations using transparencies will be possible.
Recommendations for your presentation:
The only connector available on the projector will be VGA. We suggest you to take with you any adaptor needed to connect your laptop to the VGA cable.
In order to prepare your slides for oral presentation please take also into account that the projectors available at the venue of the conference will have a resolution of 1024x768 pixels (4:3 aspect ratio).
If you are using PowerPoint, we recommend you to adjust the slide size in Design->Page Setup menu and choose 4:3 ratio to ensure the compatibility.
We strongly encourage you to have a backup of your presentation on a USB storage device in the event your laptop has a technical problem or is incompatible with the LCD projector.
Make sure that you have the necessary cords/converters/adapters so that your laptop will work with Argentinian power outlets and the LCD projector.
It is the authors’ responsibility to check in advance that their presentation works fine with the available version of the installed software.
Power sockets and plug converters for electricity in Argentina:
In Argentina the standard voltage is 220-240. The standard frequency is 50 Hz.
The power sockets that are used are of type I.
You can use your electric appliances in Argentina if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220V - 240V.
If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V - 127V, you need a power converter. It the label on the appliance states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz', it can be used in all countries of the world.
