After your request the organizers will remove the material within 24 hours.

ASECAP Days PowerPoint Template
A link to download the ASECAP Days PowerPoint template is below. The ASECAP Days template is not mandatory -- presenters are welcome to use their own company template but please do adhere to the requested slide size of Widescreen (16:9 ratio). If you wish to use the ASECAP Days logo on your template, it is available below.


Important deadlines to keep in mind:

- Speaker registration: FRIDAY 29th MAY 2020

- Biography submission deadline: FRIDAY 29th MAY 2020

- Final Presentation submission deadline: FRIDAY 5th JUNE 2020

All FINAL PowerPoint Presentations in PowerPoint format should be submitted to Romina Conti by the requested deadline. Please adhere to the following requests:
- Please create your PowerPoint in a 16:9 Ratio template as this will be the ratio of the screens for display. In newer versions of PPT this is the default. Think widescreen TV rather than an old style TV.
- To clearly identify your presentation, please save it with your given & family name as part of the file name i.e. jane_smith.ppt;
- Please ensure your first slide is a title slide stating - your name, presentation title and affiliation.
- Use larger than normal fonts.
- Your Presentation should not exceed 10 minutes, unless specific instructions are given by your moderator.
- Video: All video or sound files should be submitted as separate files, some older versions of Power Point tend to lose video linkage once the files are moved from their original location.
- Always bring a backup of all files with you. 
- All presentations are converted to PDF and posted on the ASECAP Days website at the end of each session. Please notify Romina Conti if you would like to make adjustments.
- Arrive at the meeting room at least 30 minutes before the start of your session (not your talk) and introduce yourself as a speaker to the audiovisual technician and moderator(s) if needed. Please sit near the stage to ease the transition between talks.

Presentations should be handed in at the Hotel at the very latest the day prior to your session (place to be confirmed):

- Monday 29th June between 18:00 and 18:30
- Tuesday 30th June between 18:00 and 18:30 

Due to strict time constraints between sessions it will not be possible to amend slides in the conference room. All speakers must ensure that any amendments are completed prior to the start of their session and exclusively during the 2 dedicated slots. No presentation will be accepted after the deadline or outside the dedicated slots.
