Information for Oral Presenters

Presentation Time

  • Plenary Lecture: 1 hour, including discussion
  • Keynote Lecture: 30 min, including discussion
  • Oral: 20min, including 5 min discussion

First of all, Go to Speaker Ready Room (4th Floor, Room 421)

    Authors should prepare your presentation file as the PowerPoint form, ppt or pptx file. You bring USB memory stick, or CD-ROM, the file was saved in, to Speaker Ready Room on 4th Floor on the venue, 2 hours before your presentation. The authors also choose pdf format as presentation file-type. In the Speaker Ready Room, we confirm the arrival of the speaker and then the speaker name and the presentation title. In each presentation room, only the laptop PC, we set, is available for your presentation, where your file has already transferred from Speaker Ready Room. USB memory stick, including Abstracts, will be given in the Registration desk, in which all the Abstracts of ZMPC2018 were saved, so that you can use it, bringing it to the Speaker Ready Room. In Speaker Ready Room, you can check the file through the similar screen in the presentation room. If you have any trouble and/or anxiety in the presentation, you may ask us in any time.


    1. You don’t use your own PC in your Oral presentation. If you exceptionally wish to use yours, please ask a staff in the Speaker Ready Room.
    2. In the Speaker Ready Room, we will also confirm the speaker and title along the scientific program of the Oral presentation. If you don’t come to the Speaker Ready Room so that we cannot confirm them, the respective presentation will sometimes be cancelled.
    3. When you notice troubles in the screen play etc., please ask a staff in the Speaker Ready Room. A staff in the presentation room cannot follow you.
    4. For users of Macintosh or iPad, Apple products, you absolutely never use it in the presentation.

    Speaker Ready Room, Open time :

  • 5th, Sunday 14:00 - 19:00
  • 6th, Monday 9:00 - 17:30
  • 7th, Tuesday 9:00 - 17:30
