How to handle the presentation file:
Please decontaminate your USB device with the newest security data before you plug it into the conference PC.
The oral speaker can use your own laptop or the conference PC for common use (Windows 10/PowerPoint 2016).
Please prepare a USB device which your presentation file is installed in.  At the registration desk for the speaker, get the newest information and go to the conference room before the session begins.
Please install and check the motion of your presentation file with the executive committee. The file is deleted with the responsibility of the executive committee after the session ends.
At the short presentation of the interactive papers, the conference PC (Windows 10/ Power point 2016) is used for saving the substitution time. So, the presentation file is required to submit by e-mail beforehand to merge all the files. Detail will be informed at the end of May.
On the session day at 9:00 to 9:30am, the final check of the merged file will be held. Please bring a USB device in which your backup file (PPT/PPTX) and PDF file are installed against any trouble.
When you install your file to the conference PC, please name your presentation file as follows;
   [S: Session identification, P: Paper number. For example, “A-28_Nagayama.ppt”]
