Speaker’s check-in

The speaker’s check-in at the World of Photonics Congress

Prior to your presentation you should visit the speaker’s check-in: From here your final presentation will be relayed directly to the conference room.

First-class presentation technology

The World of Photonics Congress offers all speakers an excellent presentation management system: This software distributes and relays all lectures onto the laptops in the conference rooms and displays the overview of the ongoing program on the information screens inside and outside the rooms. As such, you and your presentation can be found quickly and easily.

Each conference room used for World of Photonics Congress sessions is equipped with the complete presentation equipment—that means beamer / screen, laptop & presenter.

Please note:

  • Due to time limitations, it is not possible to connect your own laptop/hardware device for the lecture directly in the conference room.
  • It is also not possible to upload presentations directly to the conference room using the installed presentation laptop.
  • For this reason all presentations must be uploaded in advance to the presentations management system of Neumann & Müller.

Upload service in advance

All speakers can upload their presentations to a protected server of Neumann & Müller prior to the conference. Upload-Link and login details will be announced until 14th of June, 2019. Each speaker will get his own account and a link where he can upload his presentation until one (1) hour before session start.
