Abstracts presentation rules

IMPORTANT

Since all presentations are managed from the audiovisual room, all speakers, including those who will use their own computer, must go to such room to avoid confusions.

Thus, the coordinator will keep record of which presentations are launched via the server and which are not. This is important to keep the room technicians posted.
