Guidelines for Presentation

Lecture Presentations

The duration of a presentation slot is approximately 20 minutes. This includes the time for the presentation itself and for questions from the audience.

An LCD projector and a computer (MS Windows 2000/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:

The Organizing Committee recommends the sole use of computerized projection:

(1) BRING A CD OR USB MEMORY KEY CONTAINING THE PRESENTATION (PREFERRED). Speakers are advised to bring a backup PDF version or PowerPoint Pack-and-Go of their presentation to avoid software compatibility problems.


(2) BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP COMPUTER WITH THE APPROPRIATE PRESENTATION SOFTWARE LOADED (IN SPECIAL CASES WERE DEMONSTRATIONS ARE NEEDED). Please bring backup data in USB memory key or CD-ROM as well as the computer. The connector from the LCD projector to your computer is limited to a D-sub 15 pin male connection and the available AC voltage will be 110-127V.

Speakers should arrive in their session room 10 minutes before the start of their presentation 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 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.

Your presentation time is about 15-17 minutes, leaving 3-5 minutes for questions from audiences.

A reasonable presentation time for each slide is about 1-2 minutes, as any shorter interval will make it difficult for the audience to understand.

Poster Presentations

In order to make the sessions run smoothly, some cooperation from you, as a poster exhibitor, is necessary. First, it is essential that your poster is put up just before the start of the session and removed immediately after it has ended.

The placement of your poster will be marked on the panel, where it will be presented with the number of your poster contribution (e.g. "IB08-300 ). Look for your number in the conference program.

The size of the poster should be 90 cm wide X 110 cm high . Please keep poster dimensions approximately to this size.

The poster must have an upper bar with a cord/string to hang it on the poster stand-up. They will not be attached by tapes or pins.

The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 25mm high. Below the title put the author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right.
