Speaker Information

Important information for Speakers & Abstract Presenters

Audiovisual information for your presentation

The AV team at the SSC/SSCS Annual Meeting 2024 would like to help you make sure your presentation is a success. Presentations are becoming increasingly sophisticated and demanding, hence a certain amount of technical advice is necessary in order to minimise the potential technical risks. We use the latest generation of professional equipment for your presentation. To ensure that you can make optimum use of this, we have set out the a few tips and advice for you, which you can find within the Audiovisual Information Sheet (AV Sheet).

Presentation language

Official languages for presentations will be German, French and English, slides should be in English. In sessions with native English speakers without German or French knowledge, English is the preferred language.
Exception: Abstract presentations must always be given in English.

Speakers' Service Center

The Speakers’ Service Center (SSC) serves as acceptance point for all the presentations.
It is located in room "La Louve" on Level 2 and is signposted accordingly within the congress center.

Our experienced technicians check each presentation for format, correct representation, smooth animations and working videos. The equipment at the acceptance point is the same as the equipment in the lecture rooms. Once the lectures have been checked, they are transmitted to the corresponding session rooms via the internal network and will be started on the presentation PC there.

All speakers and oral abstract presenters are requested to hand in their presentations via USB compatible memory stick or via your own laptop at least 90 minutes before the respective session starts.
