Guidelines for parallel paper presentation


Parallel paper presentation sessions provide an opportunity for presentation of your work to a large audience in a short time. Since the sessions are synchronous in nature and some attendees plan to move among sessions to catch the papers of their interest, we urge you to adhere to the time allocated to you. As the time available to present your work is rather short, you need to prepare your presentation materials with utmost clarity and effectiveness. Please follow the following guidelines to help make the technical paper sessions successful.

1. Audio-Visual Equipment
All session rooms will be equipped with a laptop using Windows XP as well as an LCD projector. The presenter is to be noted that only presentation software such as Microsoft Office PowerPoint is provided. If you have special technical needs for your presentation such as OHP, please contact the conference secretariat as early as possible before the conference. If you require other software or facilities for your presentation, please arrange by yourself.

2. Preparation time
Please plan to arrive at the assigned session room 10 minutes prior to the start of the session (not just your presentation) to make sure that the needed presentation equipment is available in the room. After installing your presentation file in the computer, it is good to run the file to make sure that your file works well with the computer system and the projector.

3. Time limit for presentation
Full paper presentation slots are 15 minutes long. You are then given another 5 minutes for a question-answer session.
