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.
AudioVisual 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 questionanswer session.
