!! Troubleshooting
Sometimes projector image is divided when the presenter view (cf. 発表者ツール) is used in a PowerPoint presentation.  This trouble may happen because the projector cable is so long in the Iino Hall & Conference Center.
→ Turn off the presenter view in the “Slide Show” tab (“Monitor”).  In case of Office2016 for Mac, go to PowerPoint > Preferences > SlideShow, and turn off “Always start Presenter View with 2 displays”.


If you want to withdraw your presentation for some reasons, please inform the ISS2017 secretariat in advance.

Notice: No photography, no video and no recording are allowed for presentation materials (slides). Also, please make your cell phone into “Manner Mode”.
