5th Swiss Geoscience Meeting, Geneva 2007


GUIDELINES FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS

Lecture rooms

Each lecture room is equipped with a Windows laptop, a beamer, and an overhead projector. Since the lecture rooms are quite large, we recommend that you use a font size of 18 or greater. Assistants will be present in each lecture room and can help the chairperson and speakers.

Speaker Ready Room

The room is fitted out with the same equipment as found in the lecture rooms. Checking in at the Speaker Ready Room is the most important step you will take to ensure that your presentation is a success. The room will be opened on Saturday, 17.11. from 07:30-16:30.

Presentation with Microsoft PowerPoint

Authors should bring their presentations on a memory stick or CD-ROM and run it from the permanently installed laptop in each room. The use of personal computers will not be allowed. ALL speakers are required to check into the room where they will give their talk at the latest during the break before the beginning of their respective session (starting at 8:00 AM for the first morning session). There will be no installation/uploading during the session! Therefore, we strongly recommend to test the presentation and/or software for compatibility early in advance of the scheduled slot at the preparation room (room MR150). When you are finished reviewing your presentation and verified it is ready, proceed to the appropriated room (where you will deliver the talk) and give it to the projection personnel that will queue your presentation in the room computer. Please help us to avoid unnecessary delays in the scheduled sessions respecting this procedure

Other equipment

If you have special requirements (Video, DVD) you must let us know by 1st November 2007 at the latest! (E-mail: urs.schaltegger@terre.unige.ch).
