Guidelines for Speakers
Oral presentations will be made electronically using the audio-video equipment provided by the Conference Center.
The Speaker Presentation Office is located in Rm. 223 at the Conference Center for speakers to check their presentations on laptops identical to those being used in the auditoriums to ensure beforehand that all presentations will work correctly in the auditoriums.
Vincent Mitts, the Presentations Manager, should be contacted well in advance of the conference with any special requirements concerning visual aids, including movies and/or audio.
Speakers are requested to upload their presentation, in exactly the same way as their contributions to the Proceedings (see the Guidelines for the Submission of Contributions).
NOTE: Presentations must be uploaded the day before their scheduled presentation time in order to allow verification and transfer to the Conference Center’s system.
Please note that in addition to the presentation we require a PDF file of the presentation for inclusion in the conference proceedings.
The following precautions should be adhered to, to ensure smooth running of electronic presentations:
For PowerPoint files, only TrueType and OpenType fonts can be embedded:
To embed fonts in PowerPoint 2010:
- Select File tab.
- Choose Options
- Under PowerPoint Options, choose Save.
- Check the box for Embed fonts in the file
To embed fonts in PowerPoint XP / 2007:

For PDF files, be sure to include all fonts when preparing the PostScript and PDF files, too.
The following software will be pre-installed on the computers for the presentations:
For Windows PC’s: MS Office 2010, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Acrobat Reader.
For Apple PC’s: MS Office 2011, Firefox and Acrobat Reader.
Upload of Presentations
The files of presentations should be uploaded to our fileserver as early as possible, but at the latest, the day before the presentation. Files should be named with the program code and "_talk" (for example MOXAA01_talk.ppt, MOXAA01_talk.pdf, etc.) and then uploaded in the same way as for papers through JACoW SPMS IPAC´12 Author Accounts. The program codes assigned to presentations are visible when logging into accounts, or via the "search" functionality.
Those authors who are unable to upload to the server should copy the file to a CD or memory stick and bring it to the Speaker Presentation Office or Author Reception at least one day before the presentation.
Note that the computers used for displaying presentations will be laptop PC´s with Windows 7 and/or Apple MacBook Pros with Mac OS X Lion installed. There will be no provision for authors to use their own computers and if this will cause you problems, please contact the Presentation Manager, Vincent Mitts as soon as possible.
No overhead projector is planned. Please contact the Presentation Manager, Vincent Mitts, if this is a problem.
At the Conference
Once the presentations have been uploaded to the server, they can be checked on the Conference Center’s computers in the Speaker Presentation Office.
Slides that have been successfully captured will be published in the web version of the proceedings without further action on the part of the speaker.

In case of problems, the Scientific Secretary will be in contact with the Conference Center technical staff that has complete control over presentations.
