Programme Overview

Upload of your presentations

We will have available in the meeting room a Windows laptop and a Mac laptop with standard presentation software. Please bring your presentation on a memory stick (pdf preferred) and give it to one of the LOC persons wearing a yellow badge well before the session in which you talk. Using your own laptop is strongly discouraged.
