Instructions for paper presentations
Beamers and slide projectors will be available at each conference session.
In case you want to use your laptop for the presentation, please contact
the session chairman or the organization people before the actual session
start to check that everything works properly.
In case you want to use the room computer (a windows XP machine),
please make sure that your presentation is either a standard Powerpoint
one, or a plain PDF file. Please also assume that the preferred way to
transfer your presentation to the room computer is via an USB pen. The room
machines all have a floppy, and some of them will also have a CDROM.
There will be a machine where you can transfer presentation across
different storage media anyway
If you are going to use your laptop, please take into account that
power is 220V/50Hz in Italy. Most laptops accept this, but some do not.
In Italy the power supply plugs are either this kind (most of them):
or this kind (some of them):
Please also try to avoid booting the laptop when you start your
presentation: time schedule is tight and the time lost in booting your
computer has to be considered part of your presentation time
