Please check the
session schedule on the program that you will receive by email after the
registration deadline to see which day and time you are presenting. The
duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes (15 minutes for your
lecture and 5 minutes for questions-discussion). An LCD projector and a
computer (MS Windows XP) with a CD-ROM drive, USB ports, and
presentation software (MS PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be
available in all the conference rooms for lecture presentations.
Preparation of Visuals
Also, a Laser Pointer will be available for you, but it is highly
recommended to have your own pointer in case of emergencies.
- Before the beginning of each
session, each presenter must deliver his CV (Short Biography) which
must be printed out according to the format:
Please note that individuals
using computer projection must bring a CD or USB memory key
containing their presentation. Speakers should arrive in their
session room 10 minutes before the start of their session to hand
the presenter’s personal data sheet (biography) to the chairperson.
Limit the number of
words per visual to no more than 30.
Leave space, at least the height
of a capital letter, between lines of text.
All fonts, including those on
graphs, should be 18 point or larger.
Graphs and charts should have
bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with the background.
Your presentation time is about
15 minutes, leaving about 5 minutes for questions from the audience.
A reasonable presentation time
for each slide is about 2 minutes, as any shorter interval will make
it difficult for the audience to understand.
Do not waste visuals where they
are not needed. Use them where a picture, chart, diagram, or cartoon
will help. Tables of figures are hard to read and understand
quickly, use pie charts or column graphs instead.
If it takes longer than 10
seconds to comprehend a visual, then there’s too much material in
it. Do not put anything on the visual if you don't need it. Tell
what each visual is all about, but do not read from it. Keep it on
screen, as long as your talk refers to it.
