Recommendations for your presentation:
The connectors available on the projector will be VGA and HDMI. We suggest taking with you any adaptor needed if you want to use your own laptop, which is not the recommended option. Please notice that, if you decide to use your computer, the connection time will be reduced from your presentation time.
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 1920x1080 pixels (16:9 aspect ratio).
If you are using PowerPoint, we recommend you to adjust the slide size in Design->Page Setup menu and choose 16:9 ratio to ensure the compatibility.
We strongly encourage you to have a backup of your presentation on a USB storage device in order to upload it on the available PC.
It is author’s responsibility to check in advance that presentations correctly work with the available version of the installed software. A room will be available to test your presentation before the session starts..
