  • Presentations are viewed in the three presentation rooms using computers managed by the MT25 Conference. Presenters’ personal computers cannot be used, no exceptions.
  • Presenters have to submit an electronic version of their talk at least one day prior to their presentation to the Speaker Preparation Room. Files are reviewed, scanned for viruses and loaded onto the computers in the session rooms.
  • Changes to submitted files are not possible. By participating to MT25 and submitting your presentation, you implicitly agree to publish the content of your presentation on the public Indico site. Note that only presentations submitted and pre-viewed can be presented.
  • Using removable media like USB drives is prohibited on the computers in the oral session rooms.
  • Files transferred to the session computers cannot be copied by anyone and will be deleted after the conference. Only the copy on the Indico site is permanent.
  • Presentations must be submitted in Microsoft Power Point 2013 or PDF format. The only media for submitting your presentation in the Speaker Preparation Room is a USB flash drive.
  • Macintosh computers are not available in the session rooms, nor in the Publication Office. Authors using a Macintosh must ensure their presentations operate correctly using Microsoft Office 2013 or Adobe Acrobat in the Windows environment.

  • Keep in mind that you’re presenting in a relatively large room, so adapt the font size accordingly.
