ORAL PRESENTATION GUIDELINES

All presenters are asked to arrive at the assigned meeting room at least 15 minutes earlier to the session to meet the Session Chair and get any last-minute instructions. Please deliver your presentation to the secretariat room of the Organizing Committee at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time. The only permitted presentation formats are Microsoft PowerPoint and Portable Document File (PDF). Here are some guidelines for oral presenters that will help you deliver high-quality, consistent presentations.

  • Prepare electronic presentation using approx. 28 points or even higher letters. Avoid presenting long proofs or detailed derivations in the visual material.
  • It is highly discouraging to read electronic presentations word by word. It is preferable to point out only the basic ideas and/or heuristic explanations.
  • Your short biography including your affiliation and research interest as provided by the presenter will be read by the chairman.
  • During the oral presentation inform your audience with a few introductory sentences about the broader significance of your paper. Speak as slowly and simply as possible. Keep a check on your presentation time. Approx. 12 minutes will be reserved for your oral presentation, but if you can present your contribution in a shorter time, please do so. Your presentation will be followed by a short 3-minute discussion. Allow sufficient time for slides and projections. Explain each figure and give the audience enough time to understand a figure before going on to other topics. When summarizing your presentation, talk about the practical benefits of the results of your work. Please respect your chairman’s instructions during the presentation, particularly in keeping your time limit.

POSTER PRESENTATION GUIDELINES

Please make sure that your poster is ready for presentation before the poster session starts. Each poster is placed on a special board with a working area of approximately 84.1×118.9 cm. (A0 format). Pins and scotch tape will be provided by the organizers for poster fixation. It is essential to start the poster with the title, printed in large font (typically 36 points), then it is necessary to present the names of authors, affiliations, and contact information (phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses). Please make sure that your poster looks clear after printing. It is recommended to use short information. Pictures, graphs, and diagrams should be used to highlight the main results of the presentation.

What to illustrate?

  • Introduce your problem. What led to your work? What were your objectives?
  • Outline your solution. How did you do it? Bring out what is unique in your approach.
  • Give emphasis on salient features. Using such language can even attract researchers who are even not from that area.
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of your methods and devices.
  • Avoid large equations. Clarify/justify your assumptions.
  • Present test data, if available, to support your theory/assumptions.

How to illustrate?

  • Do not copy your paper as it appears in the conference proceedings. Nobody will read it.
  • For optimum legibility, use modern bold type. Arial or Sans Serif font type is twice as easy to read as Roman or Script font
  • Test the legibility of the material. You should be able to read your poster paper when standing 2 meters away from it.
  • Use tables, diagrams, and figures to support your explanation smartly.
