Guidelines for Oral Presentation

We recommend the use of the official FCVB2022 Powerpoint Template

Presentations should be 16:9 format and have a 1280 x 720 minimum resolution. In order to ensure optimal delivery of presentations, please consider these guidelines :

  • Presentation must be prepared in PowerPoint version: type .pptx
  • Preferred page set-up is landscape orientation (portrait orientation will not display correctly)
  • Use standard Windows fonts only. Avoid the use of non-standard Windows fonts or language-specific fonts
  • Images: Insert images with a minimum resolution of 300dpi
  • Video: WMV, MP4 or AVI are the only acceptable video formats. To avoid any issue with movies and loops with PowerPoint, presentations MUST be saved as .pptx files
  • Apple: give a filename an extension “pptx” (Preferred version: PowerPoint 2016)
  • Check on a Windows-operated computer (preferably Win7) before uploading a presentation

Restrictions - Personal laptop computers cannot be connected to the projectors in lecture rooms and presentations cannot be loaded directly onto the computer in the lecture rooms.

Technical requirements for traditional posters

Dimensions of your poster

  • Maximum dimensions for the poster are:
  • A0 Poster size - 84,1 cm (height) x 118,9 cm (width)
    Posters on several sheets are not accepted (can not be affixed)

Poster Design
  1. Title, author(s), address (at upper edge, across the width of the whole poster)
  2. Purpose
  3. Methods
  4. Results
  5. Conclusions
  6. Declaration of interest (mandatory)

The title should be emphasised by the use of bold-face type. When displayed the letters used should not be smaller than 15 mm.

The sub-title should be printed in the same kind of lettering, but semi-bold and not less than 10 mm high when displayed. This guarantees clear reading even from a distance of 2-3 meters.

The text should be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos. The use of colour makes the poster more attractive and effective.

Material for mounting your poster to the poster board will be supplied by the ESC
Please refer to the ESC staff in the poster area for further assistance.

Video / Audio / Photos

The recording of video or audio during any session of Frontiers in CardioVascular Biomedicine Congress is strictly prohibited.
