The presentation rooms are equipped with a PC, data projector and speakers. The PCs run Windows XP and are equipped with a DVD-ROM drive, USB port, Microsoft Office package, Internet connection and media player software supporting common audio and video file formats.

Using your own laptop with the data projector should also be possible. There will be technical support personnel to help if needed. If you require additional equipment or specific software, please let us know well in advance.

It is always a good idea to have a backup copy of your presentation in case things go wrong.

Each presenter will have a board and a table for their poster/software demonstration and handouts. The maximum size allowed for posters is 141 cm * 120 cm (width*height). Pins will be provided. Photocopying service is available at the conference site. If you wish to print your poster here in Oulu, the nearest choice is the Oulu University Press (located at the university).

Please let us know in advance if you wish to use your laptop during the poster session so that we can provide the outlet. The standard European plug system with two circular metal pins is used in Finland. The voltage is 230V, 50 Hz.

There is also a free WLAN network, panOULU, available at the university as well as in the city centre and at the airport. For more information, see:

There is a free recharging station for mobile phones at the university main hall. The station is suitable for various mobile phone brands: Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Siemens and SonyEricsson.
