Guidelines for speakers:
Before ISPCAN 2017, slide kit preparation
We invite you to prepare your presentation using the guidelines mentioned below.
Your presentation is part of a session with more presentations. Each presenter has 20 minutes to present their presentation.
Chairs must strictly maintain net speaking times and must interrupt if the presenter does not finish on time.
Prepare your slides in landscape orientation and standard 16:9 format ratio. Here you can find the guidelines on how to change the format of your presentation.
Standard laptops and audio-visual equipment provided by the venue will be used in the lecture room. You will be able to operate your slides by means of a remote control.
Projector, screen, sound equipment, remote control and a Windows laptop are available in each lecture room.
All presentations will be pre-loaded on the equipment in the presentation room for a smooth flow of the session. Presentations will be deleted from this equipment at the end of ISPCAN 2017 (see also below).
Always bring your final presentation on a USB memo stick to the congress venue.
During ISPCAN 2017
Upon arrival at the World Forum we would kindly like to ask you to check in at the Registration Desk.
You are advised to check the online program for your meeting room and presentation time.
Please upload and preview your slides in your meeting room to make sure they appear correctly. Please find the time to upload your presentation below. If you give a Keynote lecture, you need to be present in the room 30 minutes prior to your session to check the presentation and AV.

Session Chair Guidelines
Guidelines for session chairs
Session chairs should be present in the session room no later than 10 minutes prior to the start of the session.
To prepare for your session, we suggest that you take a look at the abstracts of the presentations in your session (see the abstracts published on the ISPCAN 2017 website).
For a smooth flow of the session, we advised the speakers to pre-load their presentation on the laptop which is available in the room. The volunteer in the room is instructed on how to upload the presentations.
At the beginning of each session, remind the participants (presenters and audience) to place cell phones and pagers on “silent” mode or turn them off.
Open the session by stating the overall topic of the session. Shortly introduce each speaker prior to his/her presentation. In the interest of time, limit introductions to name, affiliation, and presentation title.
One of your essential tasks will be timekeeping. Sessions should start and finish exactly as scheduled. The chair is responsible for the division of the timeslots. Do not allow any time overrun and do not hesitate to interrupt a presenter who has used up his/her time.
Meeting staff will be present in the room for support. You can recognize them by their ISPCAN
