Technical help
In the speakers area, a technician helps to transfer his presentation into the congress network. When the transfer is complete, the technician performs a quick run of the presentation so the speaker can check whether the presentation runs correctly and all parts of the presentation are copied. Desktop computers will be available at the speaker room for last minute changes and reviewing your presentation, if needed.
Inside the presentation room, a technical assistant starts each presentation at the right time using a fixed computer connected to the congress network. When the presentation is launched, the speaker has control and can navigate with a remote device.
We do not allow the use of personal laptop for presentations. If you bring your laptop to the congress, the technician will copy the files on your hard disk of the laptop into the central congress network, so the laptop will no longer be needed. Of course, the easiest way is to bring your presentation on CD, DVD or memory stick.
At the end of the congress, all presentations will be deleted so that no copyright issues will arise.
