We thank you for your high quality submissions

Participants at the DGPPN Congress had the opportunity to make their own scientific contributions to the programme. Submission deadlines for this year’s congress have already passed. We thank all authors for their active involvement.

Information for speakers and chairs

You can find your commitments in the Congress Portal.

If you are unable to fulfil your commitments, please inform the congress and exhibition office: dgppn@mcon-mannheim.de. Please name a replacement, if possible.

Submitting your presentation at the congress

Windows 7 notebooks with MS Office 2016 are available for all speakers at the media desk where they can review, rework and submit their presentations. Each auditorium will also be equipped with a congress laptop with the same configuration, software and hardware as at the media desk.

It is, unfortunately, not possible for you to use your own notebooks for the presentation in the hall and presentations in the auditorium.

The following media are accepted at the media desk: Windows-compatible formatted USB memory sticks and USB hard drives. There is also the possibility, if required, to download your presentations via the internet if they have been saved.

The following presentation formats are permitted: MS PowerPoint (up to MS Office 2016), Adobe PDF, Prezi, film files.

The following presentation formats are not possible: Apple Keynote, amongst others.

Information on presentations:

  • The presentation format is 16:9
  • If you are using fonts in your presentations which are not provided on standard installations of MS Windows 7 and MS Office 2016, these must be saved as embedded fonts in the final version of your presentation.
  • Films in PowerPoint must be saved embedded (as part of the PPTX file). Linked films (usually in older PPT format) should be saved as an external file in the same folder as the PowerPoint file. Please ensure that your films are created with standard Windows 7 Codecs.
  • All current video formats are accepted: e.g. AVI, MP4, M4V, MOV, MPG, WindowsWMV. The optimal video is an H.264 video in MOV or MP4 format.
  • Recommended: Save each of your presentations in its own folder on the storage medium which, for good measure, should also contain all used films as well as further files, which may be linked, such as images, sound files, tables etc.
