Dear speaker at the NFOG Congress in Bergen!
Please note the following information about your presentation:
Presentation file should be handed to the technician in the Preview room preferably on a memory stick. The Preview room is located in the entrance area close to the Registration desk.
The presentations should be delivered at least two hours before your session starts.
The preferred file format is Powerpoint 97-2003 or 2007 format, alternatively Adobe Acrobat 8 or 9 format.
Presentation files, if more than one for example with video files, should be delivered in one folder, and you should test that the files function together.
In Grieghallen, the 16/9 format will look better than 4/3 format.
This can be changed in the "slideshow"-settings:
Preferred video format is Windows Media Video (.WMV) format.
Quicktime (.MOV) is not supported!
Mac users should bring their Mac, and should present directly from their machine in the conference room. The same goes for other users with odd file formats – bring your laptop (but please: we prefer you bring your presentation on memory stick as described above).
The files should be named to be easily identified, by the following system:
Day – presentation number – authors last name-theme keyword.
Monday-PS10-Roost-maternal near miss
