Instructions for Lecturers
These instructions are for Lecturers and participants
in Round Tables, who take part in the CVCC. They are divided in Texts,
Still images, Dynamic
images and PowerPoint Presentations.
Complying with these while preparing the lecture
or paper will diminish both complexity in editing and publication, and errors.
We suggest printing them to use them as a guide
while preparing the material. The lectures and papers will be edited and published
in the Web, and before their public dissemination, the Lecturer or Author will
receive the address, so that he can access the material and perform a quality
If there are any doubts, or to send suggestions,
please send a message to email@example.com.
Likewise, we are available in the same address for questions about scanning
and image handling, etc.
for explicit clarifications, the submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
In all the submissions, the files have to be for
PC (not for McIntosh).
The lectures and papers can be sent in any of
the official languages of the congress: Spanish, Portuguese and English. In
the cases of lectures and papers submitted in Spanish or Portuguese, it is suggested
to send an English version, too.
To send the material of lectures and papers,
it is indispensable to separate the text from the
images, and to send the latter by e-mail as attached files in
their original format.
- The text must be sent in .DOC or (preferably) .RTF files
- Font and format:
- Title: Arial 14, bold, in lower and upper case
- Author(s): Arial 12, bold.
- Source: Arial 10, normal
- Body of text: Arial 10, normal, one point leaded
- Epigraphs of figures: Arial 8, normal, one point
leaded (see below)
- Bibliographic quotations in the text: Arial
8, normal, between square brackets [ ]
- Bibliography: Arial 8, normal, one point leaded
The images can be still, such as graphics, pictures, or
dynamic, such as videos of echocardiograms, angiographies, ventriculograms,
- Still images
- Still images must be separated
from the text and submitted as attached files in
their own format.
- The epigraphs of each image must be included
in the same file where the text is sent in .DOC or (preferably) .RTF format,
listed after the bibliography.
- If to obtain them, they have to be scanned,
the resolution must be equal or lower than 150dpi
- Formats: exclusively in .JPG or .GIF formats
- Maximum sizes in
pixels: width 600, height 450 (if they are wider and/or higher,
consider the possibility of splitting them)
- Dynamic images
- Dynamic images must be separated
from the text and submitted as attached files
in their original format.
- The epigraphs of each image must be included
in the same file where the text is submitted in .DOC or (preferably) .RTF
format, listed after the bibliography.
- Videos: the
formats must be .AVI or .MPG
and each file must have a maximum size of 500KB.
- Animated gifs: each
file must have a maximum size of 100KB.
Presentations in PowerPoint
- The presentations sent in PowerPoint or in similar
formats, must have texts accompanying each
slide (see example).
This requirement is based on previous experiences, when we observed that
the slides with text made understanding the presentation easier.
- The presentations must have no more than 45
slides, and the files must be under 1MB.
- Each slide must have a number.
- To make reading in the screen easier, and to
have a good printing quality, the slides must have:
- up to ten lines of text.
- high contrast between background and text:
it is suggested to use light-colored backgrounds (dark ones make printing
more difficult and expensive) with full colors, and not gradient
- if there are institutional logos included,
or masks with designs, it is suggested that they have no more than
10% in width and/or height of the size.
use the PowerPoint routine: Insert
> Table. Try to avoid importing
tables from Word or others. Tables in graphic format can be inserted.
it is better to use PowerPoint or Excel graph routines. Graphs in
graphic format can be inserted, too. In the cases of bar charts, pie
charts, etc., filling colors must be full (not gradient) and the references
must be clearly visible (consider that the slide fills one third of
- For the text that
goes with each slide there are two possibilities:
- write the text in Word in a .DOC or .RTF
file and send it as an attached file, taking care of numbering each
- use the PowerPoint routine "Notes
- Generate the slides in the usual way,
- Next opt for the "See" menu,
and then "Notes View"
- Write in the note window (at the bottom)
the corresponding texts and save.
- Thus, the text for each slide is included
in the PowerPoint file.
the order of the procedure must be followed: first generate the
slide, and then activate the notes view.
We hope you understand the reasons for these requirements,
and we thank you in advance for your participation in the CVCC activities.
