Presentation slides for theme sessions (Symposia, Panel Discussions, and Workshops), and Sponsored Event, including non-international sessions, are required to be created in English language (language for oral presentation at non-international sessions is Japanese).
Oral presentations at JDDW 2019 (lectures, theme session presentations, sponsored event) must be computer-based. Please prepare them as follows.
For computer presentations, you can either bring your own laptop, or you can register the data by bringing it on a USB flash drive or CD-ROM. To avoid problems, please bring backup media with you. Other media, such as MO, floppy disk, ZIP or DVD cannot be accepted.
The presentation data file name should be in the following order:
(Presentation No.) (Name) (Venue No.)
Example: [IS-S3_H Joe Gastro 8]
At the venue, the presenters will have to manage the equipment and materials on the podium. There will be no PC on the podium but only a monitor and a mouse.
Please prepare any handouts of presentation data yourself and bring the handouts with you. The event venues (such as the Operations Center) will not be able to handle such matters on the day.
*Specify a display area aspect ratio of 4:3 for the pages of your presentation.
The time to end your oral presentation will be signaled by a light. We request that all presenters observe the time limits.
2. Presenter acceptance
All data should be submitted to the Operation Center at the venue. Please inform the Operation Center of the venue name and presentation number no later than one hour before your presentation.
The Operation Center will receive your data and copy it to the server. The copied data will be sent to the presentation venue and will be ready. Please take your seat and wait for your presentation near the seats reserved for the next presenters (at the front left side of the venue). The organizers assume full responsibility for the deletion of the data after the conference.
