Presentation Format

Your presentation needs to be in either PowerPoint or PDF format.

The CCB (Centro Cultural de Belém) has a special smart lectern that all presenters must use; therefore, you will be unable to use your laptop. This applies to all speakers except for the speakers of the tutorials. For the tutorials, you will be able to connect your own device to the AV of the room.

The slide ratio for your presentation should be set to 16:9. To change the ratio on PPT, go to the ‘Design’ tab at the top, then select ‘Slide Size’ (usually located on the far right) here you will find the ratio options.

Presentation Upload

  • You will need to bring your PowerPoint or PDF presentation to the Conference on either a USB or have it saved on an accessible web drive such as a Google Drive or Dropbox so that you can easily provide your presentation to the AV technician.
  • A speaker preparation room will be located in the Speaker Room (exact location: TBD).
  • Speakers should report to the speaker preparation room at least 1 hour before their presentation.
  • If you have any video files in your presentation, please have these files saved separately on your USB or accessible web drive.
  • The Speakers’ Preparation Room will be open 8:00am – 4:30pm

Audiovisual inclusions

The below audiovisual will be provided in all session rooms:

  • Screen and projector with sound
  • Smart lectern with in-built screen and presentations pre-loaded
  • Microphone

Speakers will be unable to use their own laptops as this will cause delays in the program. We ask all speakers to kindly use the equipment provided and follow the instructions above to load your presentation in the speakers’ preparation room.

You can visit the Speaker Room or the registration desk if you have any inquiries.
