Technical Instructions

Dear invited speakers, contributed talkers and poster presenters of PoC,

The POC-virtual test rooms are open to allow you to become familar with the conference software. The conference software is hosted on a server at Leipzig University.

Speakers are strongly encouraged to test their talks!

Please make use of a download link or an email.

It will not be possible to upload a successive talk, while the previous talk is still being presented. This would interrupt the ongoing talk. Expect long uploading durations. Use the time before the session with your presentation to upload your talk. This way the conference can take place as planned. You can upload pdf or powerpoint files, but powerpoint files are automatically converted to pdf upon upload, this may cause unwanted effects. The maximum file size for your PDF is 30MB (the smaller the faster). If your talk is larger than the file limit, please make yourself familiar with the screensharing feature, and ensure you are on a good and stable internet connection.

Chrome browser works best for this but Firefox is also an option.
For using screensharing Chrome is mandatory.
