Presentation Preparation Instructions


Authors must prepare their oral presentations to be sure to convey their message in a clear and sharp manner, including giving outline of the key principles, facts, and results. More detailed discussions can continue during the breaks. To ensure a smooth performance during your session, please carefully review the following instructions:


  • Oral presentations have been allocated 25 minutes and 12 minutes respectively for regular and short papers. These time allotments exclude Q&A and the time necessary to switch between papers.
  • Know the time and location of your session. Make sure you know how to get to the meeting room where your session is held.
  • Arrive to the room 15 minutes before the start of the session and introduce yourself to the session chair.
  • A laptop, projector, and screen will be available in the session room, with the latest version of Microsoft Powerpoint and Office, and Acrobat DC Reader.
  • Create your presentation using MS PowerPoint or Adobe PDF formats and save it onto a USB drive. Bring the USB drive to the session and upload the presentation to the laptop in the session room at least 10 minutes before the start time of your session. You can also bring it earlier during the coffee/lunch breaks of any day before your presentation. A volunteer will be present to assist you as needed.

To avoid any compatibility problems, please carefully read the instructions below.

  • Prepare your presentation using PPT/PPTX or Adobe PDF formats.
  • Only fonts that are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows will be available. Use of other fonts not included in Windows may cause wrong layout/style of your presentation.
  • All videos or animations in the presentation must run automatically!
  • We cannot provide support for embedded videos in your presentation. Please test your presentation with the on-site laptop and ensure that it works accordingly prior to the session.
  • For better use of screen space, please use widescreen sized slides, i.e., 13” width and 7.5” height.
