Instructions for Presenters

Oral Sessions

Each of general oral presentations has 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for Q&A.
All speakers are asked to upload their presentation files by the start of their sessions.
The presentation files can be uploaded using an USB memory stick - directly onto the computer in the presentation room.
Members of APSPT-11 staff will be present in the rooms to assist you in this process and/or in resolving any technical issues. The use of their own laptop for presentations is discouraged. All presentation files will be displayed in format of 16×9. Please save your presentation files as .ppt, .pptx or .pdf files (be mindful of proprietary fonts; we recommend the .pptx format). When using videos, MPG and AVI are the most used video formats. Movies created in (Apple) QuickTime should be converted to MPG or AVI before inserting the video in your presentation files. Save the videos used in your presentation files on your USB memory stick. Please change the file name using your presentation ID and presenter's name, e.g. A-1_Smith John.pptx. Your presentation ID will be noticed at the end of November.
It is the responsibility of each speaker to check that his/her presentation file will display correctly on the conference computers (Windows 10, Microsoft Office Standard 2019, Acrobat Reader). If you wish to use your own computer, you will need the appropriate VGA video adapter (d-sub 15-pin adapter). At the end of the congress, all presentation files will be deleted so that no copyright issues will arise.

Poster Sessions

There will be two poster sessions for contributed papers. The poster sessions will take place on the second floor in Kanazawa Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The presenters in Poster session 1 (Thursday December 12, 13:00-14:20) and Poster Session 2 (Friday December 13, 13:00-14:20) are requested to display their posters during Lunch Break on their day. The posters should be displayed at least 30 min before the start time of the poster session. These presenters should remove their posters right after the end of each poster session. The board size is 900-mm width & 2100-mm height, suitable for an A0 size (841 x 1189 mm) poster format in portrait orientation. Posters can be pinned on the boards. Pins are supplied by the organizers in the poster session room.
