Oral Presentation Guidelines

Making the Presentation Onsite

  1. Determine Your Audio-Visual Needs
    Each meeting room comes equipped with a laser pointer, computer, LCD projector and screen. The computers will be configured with Windows 7 Operating System as well as with Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please bring your presentation files in Thumb drives.
    For those who wish to use their own computers for the presentation, a VGA cable will be provided to connect to the projector. Please test that your computer and slides function properly before the start of the session.
  2. Prepare Your Presentation
    Length of presentation material should be in accordance with your time allotted. Total duration including Q&A and speaker changeover is 15 minutes for each contributed talk and 30 minutes for each invited speaker. Please refer to the Final Program for actual presentation schedules. You are kindly requested to be at the presentation room at least 15 minutes before the session starts.
  3. Create a Backup Copy of Your Presentation
    We recommend that you bring at least 2 copies of your presentation to the meeting for backup purposes. Thumb drives are acceptable.
  4. Give Your Presentation
    Be considerate to the other speakers and audience by staying within your allocated time. The allocated time for your presentation includes a discussion and a changeover to the next speaker. Session Chairs will hold you to the allotted time. This is essential to ensure adequate time for questions and discussion as well as adherence to the schedule.

    Please discuss the same material as reported in your paper submission. At the end of the meeting, all presentation files will be destroyed.
