  3. The first slide should provide: title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), and a financial disclosure statement according to the Commercial Relationships Policy you filled in
  4. The presentation should be saved with the Author’s name and not with a generic name as GISE 2017 or MILANO 2017
  5. We suggest the use of simple slides without too many animations and with a font size of 14 points or greater.
  6. If customs fonts are used (not included in “Windows 10 operating system,or Office2013 or OSX) we recommend to bring the necessary fonts to the Slide Center well in advance (at least 5 hours before the speech).
  7. We suggest to include images in .gif, .jpg or .png format, in order to have a light weight presentations. Other formats may be accepted but we cannot guarantee it, we suggest checking at the Slide Centre.
  8. We suggest not to exceed 100MB (movies excluded) for each presentation.
  9. Images should be reduced with a graphics program such as "Imaging," "Photoshop", "Photo Paint", "Paint Shop Pro” or similar before importing them into PowerPoint
  10. Movies must have the following extensions: .avi, .wmv, .mpeg and must not start with double click on the image but automatically when the slide opens. Movies created with proprietary codecs from professional machines, will not be viewable.
  11. We suggest inserting no more than one movie for each slide, with a recommended maximum size of 100 MB each. Should the movie’s size exceed that limit, we suggest bringing a copy of the movies to the Slide Centre well in advance (at least 5 hours before the speech) in order to apply any possible conversion/compression to the file.
  12. In order to quickly upload presentations at the Slide Center, we recommend the following media supports: Pen Drive or Hard Disk USB. It is possible to download the presentations directly from your notebook at the slide center, if they arrive at the Slide Centre at least 3 hours before the speech.
  13. The software automatically adapts projection format according to the slides’ format (4:3 or 16:9). Should presentation be in a different format from the hall’s screen, the slides will be projected in a graphic frame.
