Oral Presentations

Speaker Room

All presenters are requested to announce themselves to the AV technician in the Speaker Room at least 60 minutes before the scheduled session time. An audio, video and basic running check of the presentation will be double checked at this time.
The Speaker room is located on Level 0, just behind the blue cafeteria in the Espace Leman.

Presenters are requested to bring their presentations (PowerPoint or PDF only!) on an empty USB stick.

In general, each presentation is 15 min long – 12 min for the presentation and 3 min for questions. The exact timing is in the hands of the chair of the session. Please announce yourself to your chair at the beginning of the session. Thank you!
