During the World of Photonics Congress a network-based presentation system will be used along with a congress specific interface to ensure a high quality of all presentations. 

All speakers can upload their presentations to a protected server of Neumann & Müller prior to the conference.

Presentation upload
After your presentation has been received by the scientific societies, you automatically receive an e-mail from the world of photonics staff with your personal login data for our presentation server.
 This occurs automatically – you don’t have to do anything.

Speaker’s check-in

Prior giving your presentation you are requested to go to the “speakers’ check-in” – Here your presence is noted and you can check your presentation again and update it if necessary. Then you can go to your conference room where your presentation is already waiting for you on the laptop.

Presentation Management / Speakers‘ Service
Each conference room used for World of Photonics Congress sessions is equipped with the complete presentation equipment – that means beamer / screen, laptop & presenter. Please note:

• Due to time limitations, it is not possible to connect the speaker’s laptop/hardware device for the lecture directly in the conference room.
• It is also not possible to upload presentations directly to the conference room using the in-stalled presentation laptop.
• For this reason all presentations must be uploaded in advance to the presentations manage-ment system of Neumann & Müller.

Upload Service in advance
All speakers can upload their presentations to a protected server of Neumann & Müller prior to the conference. Upload-Link and login details will be announced until 14th June, 2019. Each speaker will get his own account and a link where he can upload his presentation until one (1) hour before session start.

Guidelines Presentation Formats
• We recommend PowerPoint Presentation for all speakers with a slide ratio 16:9.
• It is also possible to use PDF, Word and Excel files for the presentation.
• We prefer h264 Video in mp4 file container. It is also possible to use (.wmv), (.avi) or (.mov). If the speaker is using PowerPoint 2007 or an older version he should not forget to submit any videos as separate files as PowerPoint will not have embedded them into the presentation
• There is no Internet available on the presentation computers.

On the presentation laptops in the conference rooms Microsoft Windows 8 with Power Point 2013 will be installed.
