Ginzburg Conference on Physics
May 28 - June 2, 2012, Moscow
We are pleased to inform you that the preliminary schedule of the
scientific program is available now at the conference site - Time Table.
Also we ask you to check the title of your talk at Talks .
If you have not done it before please provide us with Title and Abstract
of your talk urgently
YOUR PRESENTATION AT THE CONFERENCE:
We strongly recommend to use PDF (.pdf) for presentation as the most
universal format. Almost all software allows export to PDF. If you do have
some special features in your presentation which cannot be converted to PDF
the best solution is to use your own equipment (notebook; in case of
MacBook don't forget the VGA adapter!). For example we cannot guarantee
proper look of Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt) presentation as there are
inconsistencies between versions and "lack of font" problems.
We also strongly recommend to upload your presentation file into your
Personal conference account (in the Talk information block). This allows to
exclude any unexpected problem “just before session”.
If you have ANIMATION/MOVIES in your presentation please write a comment
after uploading (for example "slides 2 and 5 have animation") as in this
case we need to check if we have corresponding video-codec installed.
If you are going to use transparencies (which is not recommended) please
inform us in advance
