Information for Presenters

Below you will find the information you need to finalize your presentations. 

Presenters are strongly encouraged to upload presentations to the Speakers’ Slide Preview Desk at least 1 day prior their session, evidently according to their schedule.

As a reminder, VHS videos, 35 mm slides, overhead projection (transparencies etc.) will not be available.


  • Presentations need to be in .ppt or .pptx or .pps (PowerPoint and PowerPoint Show)
  • Duration for oral and highlight presentations is 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions)
  • Duration for Keynote presentations is 40 minutes
  • Screen ratio depends on hall allocation. Usually, the preferred ratio is 4:3 or 16:9. Kindly visit this page again after August 20th to refer to final specifications
  • Use a common font type (such as Arial, Veranda, etc.), as special fonts might not be available
  • Insert pictures as JPG (not TIF or PNG), so as to preserve image quality
  • Insert videos as AVI or WMV (not MOV), since QuickTime and other file types tend to run errors
