E-poster preparation

E-posters will be presented in PDF format. Use MS PowerPoint for production. The area for displaying e-posters on the screen is 52 x 72 cm (w x h). The e-poster does not have to correspond exactly to these dimensions – the width always adapts to the size of the area (however, we recommend setting the width of the document to 52 cm during production), the length is arbitrary (the poster can be rolled). The recommended minimum font size for a document width of 52 cm is 18-20 points (see the template in the screen size). E-poster boards are equipped with the "ZOOM" function, so any details (picture, graph) on the e-poster can be enlarged while viewing.

1) In MS PowerPoint

a) setting the document size (width 52 cm, height as required) in "Page Design / Appearance"

LECTURES

 A data projector with a computer equipped with MS Office Windows will be available for all lectures within the program. Please limit the use of your own technology to the minimum necessary. Lecturers have the opportunity to contact the projection technician during breaks and agree on the form and technical requirements for their presentation.

Computer specification - Instructions for PowerPoint

Please save your presentation in the version "PowerPoint presentation" (* ppt) or (* .pptx) so that we can guarantee the successful opening of your presentation on our computers. We recommend saving the presentation in PPT, PPTX format before saving in PPS format.

Fonts -Only fonts that are part of the basic MS-Windows installation (Czech version of Windows) will be available. Using other fonts may cause your presentation style will display incorrectly. Recommended fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma – If you insist on using special fonts, you must save these fonts along with the presentation. Use the following procedure: (Click on "Tools" then "Options" then "Save" and check the box "Insert True Type Fonts", then save the presentation).

Pictures / Videos

- JPG format is the most used program for "inserting" images into a presentation.

- GIF, TIF or BMP formats are also acceptable.

- A resolution of up to 250 dpi is sufficient for high-quality display of images during a presentation. Higher image resolution only increases file size and does not improve the resolution of dots on the canvas. Please compress the saved images in the presentation in the recommended resolution.

- If you have a video stored in the presentation, please come to the hall where your lecture will take place in advance, where we will test whether your video format is compatible with our software.

- VIDEO FILES: Windows Media Player (* .mpeg MPEG Movie, * .avi Video for Windows, * .wmv Windows Media Video File) - bring your own codec

- SELF-OPERATING FILES: Macromedia Flash Player etc. (* .exe)

- Save all files associated with the presentation in one folder. (PowerPoint, movie / video files, etc.).

- If you give more presentations during the congress, save the presentations in different folders and name them so that there can be no misunderstandings when saving to our system.

- Always make a backup of your presentation on a second medium or removable disk.


Where to play your presentation at the congress

 - Please deliver your presentation to the lecture hall on Thursday 16 September 2021 from 5 pm to 6.30 pm or on Friday 17 September 2021 from 7.30 am to 8.30 am if you have a lecture planned for the first morning block. If you will be lecturing in other blocks, please use the coffee break or lunch break to deliver the materials, but at most 1 ½ hour before the start of your block.

 - Technicians in the hall will upload your presentation to the system so that they have time to try the presentation and check that it is displayed correctly. Please note that when recording directly in the hall during a break in front of your section, there is no time left to check.

- During your performance, you will be able to control your presentation using the remote control, which will be shown to you by the present technician during the break.

WE ASK ALL SPEAKERS POLITELY FOR KEEPING SET PRESENTATION TIME.
