Presenters attending in person

The language of the conference is English

To make sure that your presentation works with the conference equipment, please do the following:

  • Save it on two different devices to help ensure we have a working copy.
  • Be sure that all the multimedia files are saved with the presentation in the same directory (e.g. sounds, films, pictures), otherwise your presentation may not work properly (remember multimedia is not allowed in the ‘Three Minute Thesis’ presentations).

We do not have breaks between presentations and switching between computers is sometimes time-consuming. For this reason, you will not be allowed to use your own computer for your presentation.
