Please bring your presentation file on a memory USB drive.

Oral presenters in morning sessions are strongly advised to pre-load their presentation the day before. For Monday AM speakers, please arrive to the room as early as you can.

Kindly note that you can upload your presentations at any time from the beginning of the conference and do not need to wait until the day of your presentation


Onsite Process

In the interest of efficiency, all oral presenters are requested to take a seat close to the front of the room in order to get quickly to the stage when called. The session will start with a short introduction delivered by the session Chair who will also give the floor to each of the presenters, following their order as indicated in the program.

The presentation time is 20 minutes for each oral presenter which includes the time for Q&A. Organizers ask that you be respectful of your time limit.

The Chair will also monitor the timing and has the right to interrupt the presentation if the oral presenter has extended their allocated time.

The chair will close the session at the indicated program time
