Presenters should save their PowerPoint presentation as a pptx-file, pdf-file, Microsoft Office 2007 or newer. We recommend you to ask the presenters to send their presentations to you, the convener(s), in advance of the conference. It can also be a good thing to bring a file with the presentations to the session in a USB-flash drive as a precaution.
