Presentation Information
Lecture Presentations

The duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes. You will have 15 minutes for the presentation itself and 5 minutes for questions from the audience.

A LCD projector & computer (Windows 7, MS Powerpoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in every session room for regular presentations.

Preparation of Visuals:

  • PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST EITHER BRING BRING A MEMORY STICK CONTAINING YOUR PRESENTATION FILE OR YOUR OWN LAPTOP COMPUTER WITH THE APPROPRIATE PRESENTATION SOFTWARE LOADED. Files can be uploaded to the local PCs in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. To avoid software compatibility problems (MS Powerpoint), speakers are advised to EMBED ALL FONTS in your Powerpoint file AND bring a backup PDF-version of your presentation.
  • Speakers should arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of your session to report to the chair person. A proctor will also be available in case you need technical assistance.
  • Speakers are strongly encouraged to check their presentations in advance of their sessions to avoid any last minute problems.

General Considerations:

  • Limit the number of words per visual to no more than 20.
  • Leave space, at least the height of a capital letter, between lines of text.
  • All fonts, including that on graphs, should be 18 point or larger.
  • Graphs and charts should have bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with the background.


Poster Presentations

For the poster sessions, we suggest the presenters to have 35 inches (width) by 40 inches (height) posters which are commonly used in many conferences. Poster presenters will be given a board and pins to mount the posters and they will need to bring their poster (it doesn't have to be laminated or hard board backed, it can be simply printed on paper and you can roll the poster for easy carrying). The other option is to have a regular power point presentation (12-13 slides), printed on regular letter size papers. You can also bring these paper slides and they can be mounted on the boards. There is no deadline and you can simply bring them with you.

Poster sessions bring excellent networking opportunity and allows for presenting your work to the other attendees with more detailed discussions than the oral sessions. For IEEE ,they are equal to the oral session presentations and a paper has to be presented in order to be indexed and included within the IEEExplore database.
