Technical Guidelines for Powerpoint and Media Files

Movies and video files

If your presentation contains links to video files, it is essential that you bring not only your PowerPoint file, but also your video files to the Conference Secretariat. Most video files types (e.g. .MP4, MPEG, .wmv, .AVI, etc.) are accepted. All videos linked to PowerPoint slides must be tested and checked in advance to be sure they will work properly.

Data format – images, audio and movies

Place all audio and movie files linked with the presentation into a single file folder (e.g. when transferring the presentation from your hard disk to removable drives such as USB sticks or when uploading it). Do not use any passwords or encryption for your files.

Flash-animations and Macros

Flash-animations are not supported. Do not use Macros within your presentation.

Presentation format

Please use 4:3 as presentation format

File size

There is no size limit for presentations.

Fonts

Do not use special fonts, which are not part of the standard PowerPoint package, as this will cause problems while uploading your file. If necessary embed the fonts when saving the presentation and/or bring the font files along.

Special characters

To avoid any compatibility problems, please do not use special characters (e.g. «, Ö, Ø, ñ, ε, ®, ý, }, {, etc.) to name your presentation or movie files.
