Oral Presentation Instructions

Oral presentation consists of 20 minutes for presentation of the paper, including such content as the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and any comparative evaluation that the author wishes to present. An additional 5 minutes are available for Q&A/discussion with the attendees.

To perform the presentation, the following equipment will be available in the conference room:

  • Presentation Laptop (with Windows 8 or Windows 7 operating system) and LCD projector
  • PowerPoint 2010 (which can accommodate presentations created in PowerPoint 2007 and 2003)

Presentation Slides

Slides in Acrobat Portable Document Format (pdf) are also acceptable but not preferred

The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of PowerPoint slides, so as not to exceed the 20 minute time. Typically, 1 slide is presented in 1 minute. Additional slides could be prepared as backup slides to support possible answers to attendees' questions.

Slides should not be overcrowded 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 as they are readable without efforts: typically 20 point fonts should be used.

Formatting

Presentation should be clearly structured, and  should contain the essential elements of the accepted formal paper

Presentations should be brought on a memory stick by the author to the conference.

All accepted papers are expected to be presented. If the primary author or co-author(s) are not able to attend due to extenuating circumstances, a substitute presenter should be found.

ANY PAPER NOT PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS POSTED TO IEEE XPLORE.
