Session room PCs at the meeting venue run Windows & PowerPoint 2007/2010/2013/2016 only.
Please use the following fonts to avoid character corruption.
Arial, Arial Black, Century, Century Gothic, Times and New Roman.
Define the name of your presentation file as follows:
Symposium & Seminar

Example: Symposium 1 Mary Shizuoka
Make sure CD-R is finalized (i.e. closing the ongoing session) when copying your presentation file to CD-R.
Be careful and do not forget to finalize your CD-R, otherwise the presentation file on the CD-R would not open on other PCs than you used to create the file, making it impossible to use the file in presentation.
Only Windows formats are acceptable for CD-R and USB flash memory. Be advised that Macintosh formats are not supported on the PCs provided on site.
Save only a single final version of your presentation file on CD-R or USB and make sure there are no other files or data on the media.
Only the Mini D-sub 15 pin is available for cable connection on site. Make sure your own machine supports this type of connection, or prepare the right connector to hook up your laptop.
Macintosh users are requested to bring the connectors that come with their own machines.
A monitor, a pad, and a mouse are provided on the podium. Speakers are requested to operate these by themselves.
The output resolution of the computers in session rooms is XGA (1024 × 768). Please be advised that PowerPoint Presenter View cannot be used as there is only one screen for projection in the session room.
