Oral Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Formatting

Oral presentations should be always accompanied by PowerPoint presentations. Speakers are entirely responsible for the presentation content (order, graphics, etc.). All presentations have to be delivered in English.

Please prepare your presentation using an up-to-date version of Microsoft PowerPoint, only PPTX format is allowed. The screens’ aspect ratio will be 16:9. Please note that Apple Keynote and Prezi presentations are not supported and they have to be converted into PDF files.

Please see the PowerPoint template that you can use for your presentation.
However, it is not needed as the logo of ESSO will be included in your presentation because it will be preset by our IT team on the screen.

Uploading your File

There are 2 ways to upload your presentation:
A) The first and recommended option is to upload your presentation via the congress platform. Please note that an already approved file cannot be uploaded again, therefore reuploads must be done in the Speakers’ Preview Room on-site in Florence.
2. Log in with your e-mail address in the top right corner “User login.” You will obtain your password by e-mail, and you may continue (please save the password for future use).
3. Click on your name in the top right corner and go to “Personal page“.
4. Select “Upload presentation“.
5. Upload your final presentation.
B) The second option is to hand over your presentation to the personnel in the SPEAKERS’ PREVIEW ROOM with a USB stick, as far in advance as possible but at least TWO HOURS before the start of the entire session where the presentation is to be displayed. The presentation for an early morning session should be handed over the evening before.
