    Session chairs will strictly demand these times in order to allow time for the audience to switch sessions between presentations.

For sessions starting at 9 am, the PowerPoint presentations should be delivered in the previous day. In order to avoid any delays, speakers are kindly requested to hand in their PowerPoint presentations in a USB stick. If you bring your own laptop, the presentation will be transferred onsite in the Preview Center.
  • Please locate your session room in due time. Please be at your session room at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.
  • If you want to bring your own laptop, it is crucial to make this known in the Preview Center three hours in advance for organizational reasons. Speakers are not permitted to take PowerPoint presentations directly to the technical assistant in the session rooms.
