Guidelines for Presentation
The official language of the Symposium is English. All presentation materials should be prepared in English. Materials in language other than English can be used as aid for explanation.
Instructions for Preparing your Lecture Presentation
- Each paper is allocated 20 minutes for oral sessions.
We recommend that presentation of your slides should take about 17-18
minutes, leaving 2-3 minutes for introduction, summary, and questions from
the audience. To achieve appropriate timing, organize your slides or
viewgraphs around the points you intend to make, using no more than one
slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 2 minutes per
slide when there are equations or important key points to make, and one
Make sure each of your key points is easy to explain with aid of the material on your slides. Do not read directly from the slide during your presentation. You shouldn't need to prepare a written speech, although it is often a good idea to prepare the opening and closing sentences in advance. It is very important that you rehearse your presentation in front of an audience before you give your presentation at ISCSLP-2006.
- Each presenter must contact the Session Chair in advance of the presenter's session.
- All presentation rooms will be equipped with a computer, a data projector, a
microphone, a pointing device, an overhead projector, and an audio connection
for audio playback. Please upload your presentation to the provided computer
well before your session starts, and test whether everything works as you
expect. If you prefer to use your own notebook for presentation, please also
do a testing well in advance of your session.
- Some lecture presentations will be given in quite large lecture halls with about 400 seats. When you prepare your presentation, please pay special attention to the type and size of fonts you will use and ensure that the entire audience will be able to see your presentation in such a large lecture hall.
Instructions for Preparing your Poster Presentation
- For your poster, a board will be provided with a display panel of A1 size (594mm x 841mm),
and can be laid in both portrait and landscape orientation. Velcro adhesive or non-foam
type double-sided tape will be provided at the conference to mount your
- If this is the first time for you to make a poster presentation, you may find the following guidelines useful:
Poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel sessions. Thus it is important that you display your message clearly and noticeably to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.
Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It need not, and should
not, attempt to include all the details; you can describe them in person to
people who are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract attention,
provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. Carefully and
completely prepare your poster well in advance of the conference.
Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your efforts for technical discussions.
Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster throughout the 2-hour poster session. If possible, more than one author should attend the session to aid in presentations and discussions, and to provide the presenters with the chance to rest or briefly view other posters.
