We are delighted that you will be joining us at the Ecocity World Summit 2015!We hope that the information provided here will help you to get the most from the Summit.
Speakers are kindly requested to follow the timing allocated for presentations as stated in the programme. A timer will be visible on stage to assist speakers.
Time limit for presentations in plenary sessions: 15 minutes
Time limit for presentations in breakout sessions: 12 minutes
It is highly recommended to limit PowerPoint presentations to 20 slides to ensure presentations do not go over the time limit. For optimal viewing, PowerPoint presentations must be in 4:3 ratio
Videos that are to be played during a presentation should be in Windows Media Player format (wmv.). Kindly make sure the videos are saved in the same folder as the PowerPoint presentation and the file names should include the slide number where it is played from (example: Slide 10 has two videos therefore the file name for the videos should be “Slide10v1” and “Slide10v2”).
We do not recommend to use the internet when presenting as we cannot guarantee the strength and speed of the internet due to the internet being available for all delegates.
Please note that there will be briefing sessionsfor speakers every morning at 08:00am on 11, 12 and 13 October in the Speaker Room (Capital Suite 6). The briefing sessions will be facilitated by the Summit’s Content Manager, Dr. Costis Toregas. He will be available to answer any questions with regards to presentations and share guidelines and recommendations with speakers.
To assist you with preparing your presentation, we invite you to visit the Summit website at www.ecocityworldsummit.com/speakercorner where you will find an interactive programme with brief summaries about your session(s) along with guiding questions to assist you.
