How to prepare your oral presentation 

PowerPoint Instructions

  • Please use the Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2007 or 2010* (*.ppt) or (*pptx), to guarantee they will open successfully on an on-site PC.
  • We recommend you to save your PowerPoint presentation using PPT(X) format instead of PPS
  • Please note that we cannot guarantee the quality of MacIntosh-based presentations, please check in advance (2 hours before your session starts) their Windows compatibility

  • JPG images are the preferred file format for inserted images. GIF, TIF or BMP formats will be accepted as well.
  • Images inserted into PowerPoint are embedded into the presentations. Images that are created at a dpi setting higher than 200 dpi are not necessary and will only increase the file size of your presentation. Try to avoid overloading your presentation with unnecessary images.
  • In case you have any videos in your presentation - please test your presentation with the on-site PC several hours before your presentation. Generally, the MPEG-1 and AVI format should work with no difficulties 
  • Only fonts that are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows will be available (English version of Windows). Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause the wrong layout / style of your presentation.
  • Suggested fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma
  • If you insist on using different fonts, these must be embedded into your presentation by choosing the right option when saving your presentation, see details below: 
    - Click on „File“, then „Save As“ 
    - Check the „Tools“ menu and select „Embed True Type Fonts“
