  • 1 beamer (plus 1 spare) for electronic presentations
  • 1 overhead projector for transparency based presentations
  • 2 big presentation silver screens
  • 2 presentation laptops running Windows XP with installations of Microsoft Office XP, OpenOffice.org 1.1.3 and Adobe Reader 6.0 (One laptop is in use while the other one is being prepared for the next presentation and vice versa)
  • 1 VGA signal switch
  • Powerful green laser pointer
  • Wireless "slide remote control"
  • Electronic "Speaker Timer"
  • 2 spare USB memory sticks

Upload of Presentations at the Workshop (two possibilities):

  1. Upload your presentation to both presentation laptops by means of a USB memory stick before the session starts.
  2. Copy your presentation from your own laptop to the file server \\pc3050\exchange (see above). Then you can either download your presentation from the fileserver to both presentation laptops onto the local hard disks (preferred way of uploading) or you run your presentation via the network from the file server. 

Important Information for Speakers:


  • There is no computer running a presentation on "stage". Your presentation runs on one of the two laptops (Windows XP) on the Chairman's desk.
  • Upload your presentation to both presentation laptops by means of a USB memory stick before the session starts (see above).
  • Once the Chairman has started your electronic presentation you will have full control over your presentation with a keyboard and a mouse on "stage".
  • Additionally we will provide a simple and easy to use wireless "slide remote control" with two buttons (one slide backward / one slide forward).
  • During your presentation the Chairman can help you "online" if you have a problem with your presentation. He/She has parallel access to your presentation.
  • More information about the presentation setup can be found here: Instructions for Speakers and simplified schematic).


  • We will provide the so called "Speaker Timer". This timer allows you to manage your remaining presentation time.
  • The Chairman sets up the time (in minutes) and controls the timer with his mouse and keyboard.
  • Your screen shows the minutes remaining together with a horizontal bar.

Important Information for Chairmen:


  • The presentations run on the laptops on the Chairman's desk. The next presentation can be prepared by the Chairman on the other laptop while the first presentation is running. After the first presentation has finished, the Chairman switches to the other laptop by pressing the button on the VGA switch box. (More information about the presentation setup can be found here: Instructions for Chairman and simplified schematic).
  • The Chairman needs to make sure that all presentations are available on both presentation laptops (preferred) or on the fileserver (see above) before the session starts.


  • The Chairman operates the "Speaker Timer". He sets up the time (in minutes) and controls the timer with his mouse and keyboard.
