Preparing for Presentation
You will have 15 minutes for your talk, followed by 2 minutes for Q&A. Please design your slides to fit the time frame and practice to make sure you will not run out of time. Most authors find that 10-12 slides are about right. Additional slides (Backup slides) could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions.
Each illustration should not be crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided: illustrations should support the presentation; they should not be simply read by the presenter. Graphics help in communications, are more understandable and point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort. The presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title slide. The index of the presentation should outline the presentation. The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area. Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a perspective for the results presented in the paper. The innovative approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the application problem should be described, by pointing out the main features and characteristics, the problems, and the solutions. The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated. Appropriate comparison with previous results should be presented. Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results. Future work and developments could also be sketched.
