Presentation Instructions

Oral presentations

The official language of the Symposium is English. Each oral presentation is allocated 20 minutes, of these the last 5 minutes shall be used for questions, discussion and change over.

Presenters should be in the session room 20 minutes before the session begins to meet with the session chair, who should be near the stage/lectern. Presentations shall be uploaded to the IGARSS 2012 computer in the presentation room during the break before the session. Presenters are advised when uploading their presentation to check if formulas/animations are shown correctly. An author preparation area equipped with computers will be available for the authors to check their presentations. If presenters wish to practice setting up the slides or pre-load them onto the provided computer, this has to be done before the session begins.

Each presentation room is equipped with one computer/video projector, a microphone, a lectern, and a pointing device. The software installed on the computer includes:

The media player is only available with the standard codecs. Use of standard True Type fonts is suggested for PowerPoint presentations. In the case PowerPoint contains videos, please ensure that both files (Power Point and video - MPG AVI) are in the same folder.

As baseline, presentations from personal laptops are not allowed, to ensure a smooth programme running and to minimise transition time between presentations. The possibility to present from PCs other than the session room PC is not foreseen.
