Please download the template here.

In Verona, your presentation must be handed over to the personnel in the SPEAKERS’ PREVIEW ROOM with a USB stick as far in advance as possible and at least TWO HOURS before the start of the entire session where your presentation is to be displayed. The presentation for an early morning session should be handed over the evening before (on the first day as soon as possible in the morning).

Your presentation must be loaded before your presentation time; this means at least one session before the beginning of your session. If you are late, we cannot guarantee the upload.

The location of the SPEAKERS´ PREVIEW ROOM and opening hours are as follows:

ROOM S2 (Floor -1)
ROOM S2 (Floor -1)
8:30 - 17:00
8:00 - 17:30
8:00 - 17:30
8:30 - 13:00

All presentations will be sent directly to the lecture room through the internal computer network.
All presentations must be uploaded in the SPEAKERS’ PREVIEW ROOM beforehand.

We kindly ask all speakers to come to your lecture room 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the session.

In the Lecture room

In the lecture room, you will be assisted by a hall assistant who can show you how to operate your presentation, remote control, mouse/pointer controller, etc. Please be ready when it is your turn to present to minimize wasted time. This means that you should be in the lecture room prior to your appointed time in case there are schedule changes during the session.

Speakers are asked to come to the lecture room 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the session. Please make sure you arrive early and use this time to confirm the format of your session to the chairs and ensure that the number of slides is appropriate for the time allotted to the presentation (2 minutes per slide approx.)
