Each presentation room will be equipped with a laptop computer and a projector (16:9 aspect ratio) for PowerPoint presentations, connected with HDMI cable. The available software may also allow for other types of presentations, such as embedded videos.
The laptop will be also connected to external speakers together with a microphone for sound output.
All presentation rooms will be set up in theater style with a head table, where the laptop and the microphone will be placed.
Presenters are advised to arrive in the room at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the session in order to familiarize themselves with the equipment available in the room, upload their presentation in the laptop and test it with the equipment.
