Digital presentation

During your workshop, practical and application-oriented contents supplemented by experiments and simulations should be presented.

We strive to guarantee high quality workshops. Therefore, please note that your presentation is designed as training only and that product presentations as well as marketing message are not permitted.

The workshops of the EMV goes digital will take place online via Zoom.

The duration of your workshop is 3 hours including a 15 minutes break. Please calculate at least 15 minutes for questions and discussions.

You are welcome to use our presentation template.

To ensure that your presentation will be a success please find some important hints and tips hereinafter.

  • Presentation:
    The presentation does not necessarily have to be a full PowerPoint presentation. You are welcome to pre-record e.g. experiments and measurements and add these video sequences to your presentation. If you have access to technical equipment (e.g. “recording studio”), you can perform live experiments and measurements of course.
  • Audio:
    Use a headset. By this, a good voice quality will be obtained and no acoustic noise will be made. Avoid disturbing external noise.
  • Webcam/camera:
    During your presentation, rather look directly into the camera than at the monitor as often as possible. Prior to your presentation define an appropriate display section. Position yourself in front of a calm background and not in front of a window. Pay attention to a contrast between your clothing and the background. The clothing should not have too small patterns. Create a sufficient lighting. This works best with a light source from top left and right. You are welcome to use the full HD background (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) of the "EMV goes digital".
  • Interaction with the audience:
    A popular and frequently used way to engage participants is to include questions during your workshop. To do so, fill out this form and send your questions to by 08 March 2021. We will be happy to discuss the process with you during the speaker training.
