How to create your PowerPoint presentation

All speakers (EXCEPT poster presentation speakers) are required to submit a copy of your PowerPoint presentation to support the presentation in advance, preferably right after you have submitted your manuscripts. The PowerPoint will be reviewed by the session chairperson for approval. The reason for this is to eliminate any commercial content. Therefore, keep in mind that your presentation must have a technical/design focus and not commercial. Sales pitches will not be allowed.

Rules for making a PPT

  • You can use your own template or a template specially designed with the GPD Finland 2017 logo
  • All versions acceptable up to Office 2013 (pptx)
  • Sending the PowerPoint will NOT release the presenter from the responsibility of taking the PPT with him/her to Finland
  • The PowerPoint must be ready and sent to the conference organizers by the set deadlines.

NOTE: If the presentation has not been sent by the given deadline, the organizers can not guarantee the functionality of the PowerPoint at the venue during the event.
