ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Your Presentation


For oral presentation, the conference organization will provide  computers and data-show projectors, at all rooms. All computers available for presentation use the Windows operational system. You should bring your presentation (PowerPoint, PDF, etc.) in a USB pen-drive, in a format compatible with Windows. If you are going to use some particular media that requires special software, let us know at least one month in advance, please, sending a message to

Perhaps you are bringing to the meeting your very expensive, state-of-the-art Mac. You may despise Windows, and deride the equipment available at the conference. Notwithstanding all this, we do ask you not to insist in connecting your own equipment to the projector, during your talk. Connection of private notebooks (or tablets, smartphones, etc.) to the projectors will not be allowed, because of technical reasons: there might be delays and incompatibility.

Whatever the operational system and software you use, if you prepare a PDF file of the presentation, it will be compatible with the computers available at the meeting. Of course, PDF files do not support videos, animations and other special effects. But if you are using only text and images, it is the best final format for presentation.

PowerPoint and other equivalent software may be the best alternative for preparing presentations with animations, videos and other special effects. The most recent version of PowerPoint will be available for use at the conference. Independently of the operational system you use and the specific software employed for creating your presentation, it is possible to convert it to PowerPoint format, and we ask you to do so, please. The conversion, understandably, should be done by yourself, several days before your performance at the conference.

The file you are going to use should be brought to the conference in a USB flash-drive. Make sure that your flash-drive is virus-free, please. The room computers do have access to internet and there will be wireless connection for attendants, but, please, don’t bring your file to the presentation room in your notebook, tablet, smartphone or other equipment, because there might be delays and incompatibility.
