Presentation Guidelines


1. Each session room will be equipped with an LCD projector and a microphone.  Please bring your own laptop. 

2. Each presentation is allocated 20 minutes.  You should spend about 17 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation.  An additional 2 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees.

3. Sign the register to show that you presented your paper.

4. Prepare an appropriate number of slides, so as not to exceed the 17-minute time frame. Typically, one slide is presented in one to two minutes.  Additional slides could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions.

5. Slides should not be overly crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided: slides should support the presentation; they should not be simply read by the presenter. Graphics help in communications, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort; typically 18-20 point fonts should be used.

6. Your presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title page. The index of the presentation should outline the presentation. The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area. Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a perspective  for the results presented in the paper. The innovative approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the problem should be described, emphasizing the main features and characteristics of both the problem and the solution. The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated. Appropriate comparison with previous work should be presented. Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results. Future work and developments could also be sketched.
