lecture session presenters should meet with the Session Chairs prior to
their session time to discuss arrangements and confirm their presence
at the conference, equipment to be used, order of presentation, etc.
The meeting may be at breakfast on the day of you session or
just prior to the sesion start time, depending on your Chair's
preferences. You may be contacted by our Session Liason with
further instructions regarding preparation and meeting times.
Time is critical. Each paper is allocated 20 minutes. Presentation of
your slides should take about 14-15 minutes leaving 5-6 minutes for
introduction, summary, and questions from the audience.
Try to organize your slides (PowerPoint, 35 mm or viewgraph) around the
points you intend to make, trying to use no more than one slide per
minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 2 minutes per slide
when there are equations or important key points to make, and one
minute per slide when the content is simpler. Slides attract and hold
attention, and reinforce what you say - provided you keep them simple
and easy to read. Plan on covering at most 6 points per slide, covered
by 6 to 12 spoken sentences and no more than about two spoken
It should be easy for you to look at each slide and speak easily and
naturally about it for one or two minutes. Make sure each of your key
points is easy to explain with aid of the material on your slides. Do
not read directly from the slide. You shouldn't need to prepare a
written speech, although it is often a good idea to prepare the opening
and closing sentences in advance. It is very important that you
rehearse your presentation in front of an audience before you give your
presentation at this conference.
The following standards should be followed to achieve the best results
for the presentation of your paper at this year's conference. It is
imperative that you follow the guidelines to ensure that the entire
audience will be able to see your slides. Your Session Chair may
contact you in advance of the conference and request copies of your
visual aids for approval before the conference.
presenters are expected to bring their presentation on CDROM or USB
flash drive for transfer to the session computers. Presentations should
be in Microsoft Power Point or Adobe Acrobat format. An
additional session computer will be available for authors to
verify the compatibility of their presentations before their
session. All presentation rooms will be equipped with
a data projector, as well as a microphone (for large rooms), a lectern,
and a pointing device. If you have any questions concerning audio
visual equipment needs, please contact the well
before the Conference. Failure
to make any special arrangements (if required) may mean that the
equipment will not be
available to you.
Slides should be oriented horizontally. Their contents should fit
within a rectangle 23cm wide by 17cm high. Lettering: A minimum font
(type) size of 24 point (capital letters at least 6mm high) should be
used. If possible, use a "sans serif" font, for example "cmss" in the
Computer Modern family or the "Helvetica" Postscript font. It will make
your viewgraphs easier to read. Spacing: A minimum of 5mm of blank
space should be left between lines; more is preferable. Do not
overcrowd your viewgraphs. Leave as much "white space" as possible, to
make them easily readable.
Following the above guidelines, you will easily be able to put as much
information on the slide as your audience can absorb in one minute.
Remember, you can expand upon some points in your lecture presentation.
The slides need not contain every minor piece of information. It is
more important that they be easily readable by the audience.
