Oral Presentation Guidelines


Oral presentation slides will be by PowerPoint presentation. The speakers are entirely responsible for the presentation content.​

Please make sure your presentation is in a compatible format as indicated in the list below. Files generated by PowerPoint version 2016, 2013 or 2010 are compatible. Please contact the Secretariat if you hope to use another format. Please avoid using KeyNote and Prezi. The on-site computers will handle Windows versions of PowerPoint only. The following file types are supported.

Supported file types

  • Presentation: PPTX, PDF
  • Video: AVI, MPG, MKV, MP4, WMV
  • Audio: WMA, MP3, WAV
  • Pictures: JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF


File upload via USB drive at the venue

Please bring your presentation to the conference on a USB drive.  Do not forget, when saving your final presentation on a USB, to make sure that you include your video or multimedia files (if any). Links to these files should be embedded in the Powerpoint presentation if possible. If, for some reason they cannot be linked, please inform the A/V personnel well before your presentation. 

Please give your presentation (and associated files) on a USB stick, to the A/V personnel in the Speakers ready room (room no. 201).  The A/V personnel will upload your presentation and you will be able to check that the presentation is operating correctly, in the Speakers ready room. 

Your presentation must be loaded before your presentation time; this means at least one session before the beginning of your session. If you are late, we cannot guarantee the upload.

Virus scanning in advance is desirable.


In the lecture room, you will be assisted by a hall assistant who can show you how to operate your presentation, remote control, mouse/pointer controller, etc. Please be ready when it is your turn to present to minimize wasted time. This means that you should be in the lecture room prior to your appointed time in case there are schedule changes during the session.


Please note that all presentations delivered during PTCOG 60 may be published on the PTCOG website to members. Publication depends on your authorization provided via a survey after the conference. The presentations will be video recorded.  Presentation will be converted to pdf files after the conference.  If you need to do something special for the pdf file, please also provide a pdf file on your USB drive.
