Oral presentation guidelines

All presentations will be in a WIDESCREEN format. To take full advantage of the new widescreen format, we recommend that you build or convert your presentation to 16:9. We strongly recommend using Microsoft Office PowerPoint for your presentation. Please note that the congress computers are being supplied with PowerPoint 2013.
