HISTORY OF THIS WSEAS CONFERENCE

The conference started as an initiative in the Technical University of Bucharest, Romania, (November 7-9, 2008). In 2009, the conference was held in Puerto De La Cruz, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain (December 14-16, 2009) with the support of several university laboratories and societies. University of Algarve was the host and organizer of this conference in Faro of Portugal in 2010 (November 3-5, 2010). In 2001 and 2012,  with the Sponsorship of the Universita degli Studi di Genova, Italy and Technical Univ. of Sofia, Bulgaria the conference the conference is organized in Catania, Sicily, Italy (November 3-5, 2011) and in Malta (September 7-9, 2012)
 

PRESENTATION INFORMATION:

General Information
*
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.
* It is highly recommended to have your own pointe. Over-head Projector cannot be used. Only computer presentation (computer - data projector) will be allowed.

Preparation of Visuals
*
Before the beginning of each session, each presenter must deliver his CV (Short Biography) which must be printed out according to the format: http://www.worldses.org/drafts/biography.doc
* 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.

General Considerations
*
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.
