The lecture hall will be equipped with standard overhead for transparencies and
PC with presentation projector for Power Point presentations
(MS Windows 98, 2000, XP and MS PowerPoints 2000 or higher, no Makintosh will be available).

If you use movies in your presentation it may be useful to bring the used
codecs with you to install in case of a problem.

You are strongly advised to have your presentation on CD, or USB FlashDrive as
it will be difficult to use personal notebooks because of a very dense program and lack of time.
We are sorry if this causes you inconvenience.

Voltage standard in Russia is 220 V/50Hz.

Posters should fit the 90x110 cm format, portrait orientation.
