For the upcoming CARTOCON2014 conference we would like to inform you about important notes for presenting authors. Detailed program will be finalized and published during few days.

A central Media Check will be available in the hotel center during the entire conference. All projection data for presentation will be collected, administered and held on a central place. A notebook as well as a data projector for Power-Point Presentation will be available in each session hall (no analogue slide-projection)!

We kindly ask all speakers to submit their presentations on site at the central Media Check desk. Digital documents should be handed over as soon as possible, but not later than 2 (two) hours prior to the session where they are due to be presented. Facilities for the use of private laptops for presentation or for a transfer of personal data within the lecture rooms will not be provided. It can be accepted only in special cases (special software needed etc.) The Media Check staff should be inform about special demands at least few hours before presenting. Conference staff will wear coloured T-shirts in case of any problems.

Speakers will be able to start their presentations directly at the lectern during each session, and the presentation will exclusively make use of the beamer provided. You have to manage your own presentation per wireless presenter, but there will be an assistant for eventual technical support in every room.

We kindly ask all presenting authors to be present in the room at least 10 minutes before the session starts. There will be 15 minutes for each presentation and 5 minutes for discussion and questions. In order to guarantee a most precise organisation of the entire programme, all speakers are requested to strictly keep to their allocated presentation times. Key session (starting) speakers will have 20+5 minutes available.

In order to ensure the smooth course of the event, all speakers are requested to prepare their presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint file format (4:3) in an optimal manner in English. Please name your files starting by the name of the first author. Graphic data should be embedded into presentations and video and audio data must be linked to presentations and should be added separately as *.avi, *.mov,  *.wmv  or *.mpg file. Due to financial support from the European Social Fund and the state budget of the Czech Republic are all supported participants ask for using a conference presentation template (at least first slide of your presentation).
