Please read the following instructions carefully.


You may elect to use Powerpoint slides prepared to run on a PC for your oral presentation at Hypoxia. However, we ask that you carefully prepare the slides according to the following guidelines, and that you practice using Powerpoint before the meeting.

Keys to Success

Computer: We will supply a Mac laptop that will be equipped with the latest Powerpoint software. You will not be able to use your personal computer.

Transfer of Your Files: The laptop that you can use for your Powerpoint presentation can read CD/DVDs or USB jump drives. Bring your presentation on one of these media.

File size: Smaller is faster. Scan pictures at a lower resolution as one tactic to reduce file size.

Timing: If you are delayed because of a problem with your Powerpoint file, your talk may be cut short.It is your responsibility to be prepared. Practice your talk beforehand, and to familiarize yourself with our laptop. To that end there will be several opportunities to try out your talk on the presentation laptop; the day before your talk at 0730 to 0800 and 1830-1900, plus during the ski breaks.

Style: No one will be impressed by fancy flying objects, fades and other nonsense that is fun the first time, but no fun for an audience trying to quickly grasp your presentation. Keep it simple, straightforward and logical. Use large fonts and simple colors. See below for more suggestions.
