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.
Also, a Laser Pointer will be available for you, but it is highly
recommended to have your own pointer in case of emergencies.
Preparation of Visuals
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
number of words per visual to no more than 30.
at least the height of a capital letter, between lines of text.
including those on graphs, should be 18 point or larger.
charts should have bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with
presentation time is about 15 minutes, leaving about 5 minutes for
questions from the audience.
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.
