account the hotels are
some 10 minutes walk apart with hotel Patria approximately in the middle !
The allocation of the seminar rooms for parallel sessions is in progress.
Each seminar room (including Congress Hall) will be equipped
with the standard presentation techniques:
- beamer (video projector) attached to Windows XP presentation
notebook for computer-aided presentations with installed software:

In case you have your presentation available only on the
transparencies, please let the conference office to scan them after your
talk. The conference office will return the transparencies back to you

laptops, the preference is to use the attached notebook (unless the
use of your private notebook with available beamer is tested well in
advance). Technical assistance will by available in each seminar room
to start the talk and help to resolve on-site problems.
Submission of Presentations
Collecting the presentations, their careful cross-checks, e.g. for
missing/substituting fonts and their distribution into the seminar room
notebooks require non-negligible effort and time, therefore the strong
preference of organizers is to get the presentations at your earliest
convenience. To submit the presentation use one of the bellow listed
- Before the beginning of workshop:
- by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
and/or directly to Dr.Pavol Stríženec
with subject: speaker name and working group session.
After verification, e.g. for the availability of used fonts, you will
get the confirmation e-mail.
- by e-mail (as above) with URL of your
presentation, e.g. (H1 web server example):
Again after the cross-check you will receive the confirmation mail.
- Directly on site:
- contact Dr.Pavol Stríženec (in conference
office located in hotel Patria) and transfer the file using one
of the listed possibilities (again our please : submit the presentation
at your earliest convenience, in any case not later than ~0.5 day before your
- CD ROM,
- USB disk,
- floppy disk and
- direct LAN transfer (ftp/scp) from your notebook to organizer's desktop PC.
Technical Hints :
- to split the larger file in UNIX/Linux to fit the floppy disks
you can use e.g. command :
split --bytes=1400k filename f
you will get your file split into 1433600 bytes chunks named faa, fab, ...
Later you can merge them back
in UNIX/Linux :
cat fa? > filename or
in DOS :
copy /b faa+fab+fac filename
- especially for PowerPoint users submitting their presentations: to avoid
the missing font substitution and possible unpleasant distortions due to this,
restrict your font selection to the standard fonts.
If you would like to be sure use only TrueType fonts, which can be embedded in the
presentation file. Unavoidable you presentation file with embedded fonts will get
