Presentation Length

Each presentation will be allocated a 13 minute slot. Actual presentations must not exceed 10 minutes leaving 3 minutes for questions. Timing will be strictly enforced so please ensure that you have rehearsed the timing of your talk beforehand.

Each of oral presentations will also have an associated poster presentation, therefore, additional details can be given at that time.

The MICCAI 2013 organizers consider recording each oral presentation and posting it on the MICCAI 2013 web site after the meeting with the agreement of the presenter.


Useful recommendations to prepare a presentation can be found on this web site.

Speaker Ready Room and Slides Upload

We require speakers to upload their slides at our dedicated Speaker Ready Room one day before their presentation.

Presentation Format

The preferred formats are PowerPoint and Adobe PDF. Computers with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 will be available for the oral presentations. Presenters should preferably use the conference system and not their own laptop to minimize setup time. Keynote presentations available on Mac are not recommended as they would be converted into PowerPoint format.

We request that each presenter upload their presentation as early as possible on the conference computer system. We suggest bringing a copy of all the files including movies on a USB key. If you are including videos in your presentation it is highly recommended you use a standard codec such as Microsoft Video 1 to avoid playback issues. Using the Package for CD option from PowerPoint will ensure all media files are copied into one location and file paths are adjusted inside the presentation.
