Lecturers are requested to provide their presentations electronically with their own laptop computers. All lecture rooms are equipped with a projector (“beamer”) with HDMI connector. The projectors are compatible with 4:3 and 16:9 formats.

Laptops must be provided by the speakers and require an HDMI adapter if needed. As a backup, the presentation should be brought on a USB stick in PDF and/or PowerPoint format. All laptops must be set up and the connection with the projector tested before the start of the respective session. All rooms will be opened, at the latest, 30 minutes before the lecture. Speakers are requested to be in the lecture room at least 25 minutes before the start of the session, to report to the chairperson as well as the technical staff, to ensure that the laptops handshake with the beamer, and to receive a brief introduction to the equipment in the lecture room.

Presenters and/or laser pointers will be available in all lecture rooms.
