Format guidelines for the presentations

  • PowerPoint is the presentation programme available in all session halls.
  • No other devices, personal computers etc. than the ones provided in the session halls are allowed for presentations. 
  • The PowerPoint handling and distribution system is optimised for MS PowerPoint 2016 (Office 2016) and Adobe Acrobat-files (“*.pdf”). The uploading of “DVD-Movies” is not supported.
  • The supported data storage media are: CD, DVD (as Data-storage-medium) and USB-Memory (Stick). All needed files – also the movie files(!) – have to be on the datamedia. Presentations can also be taken off speakers’ notebooks at the Speaker Ready Room. Please make sure there is enough time for conversion.
  • Format for embedded movies: “*.mp4” and “*.wmv” are preferred, any other format may work or may be converted to an optimised format (may take some time!)
  • The fonts that are used in the presentations need to be Latin-based fonts. If you need special fonts, they should be stored as „embedded fonts“ with the presentation. (File -> save as „name of presentation“ and under „tools“ → save options mark the checkbox „embed True type fonts“ and select „embed all characters“). When using mathematical symbols, please use these which are available under Latin fonts (unicode or DOS: Western Europe).
  • Presentations should be saved as “*.ppt“, “*.pptx” (= PowerPoint) or “*.pps“, “*.ppsx“ (=PowerPoint Slideshow) – file and movies might be separate files on the data media (if not embedded). All computers and projectors will be set up and optimised for 16:9 ratio. Please adhere to these specifications in order to have a well-prepared presentation.


Please follow these specifications above to have a well-prepared presentation!
