Oral presentations for mini-conference papers and main-conference full papers should be 15 and 25 minute long, respectively.
Posters Presentation Guidelines
To ensure a smooth running of the poster sessions, the Authors are expected to:
- Set up their posters 1 hour before the poster session starts.
- Be present at their poster for the entire poster session.
- Sign-in at the poster desk next to registration desk before your poster presentation.
- Explain their paper to the collected audience.
- Answer questions and interact as appropriate.
- Remove their materials at the end of the poster sessions.
B. SETUP, POSTER STYLE PRESENTATIONS and SUGGESTIONS FOR GOOD POSTER PRESENTATIONS:
- All poster materials should be provided by the Author(s).
- Each poster will be assigned to a specific board during the scheduled poster session.
- The poster board size is 114cm(W) x 170cm(H). Any poster size fitting in the board size will be fine, but we do not recommend a poster size smaller than A0.
- Please try your material layout before you arrive and make sure it fits in the assigned space.
- The title of the poster session should be displayed in large font, 36 - 60 point, to help the audience find your paper.
- Your main point or conclusion should be in large font if it is not covered in the title.
- A font below 18 point is difficult for the audience to read. Try not to include any smaller print on your presentation.
- Avoid large sections of text in all capitals; it can be difficult to read. Use CAPITALS and/or bold to emphasize your points
- Display the highlights of your presentation in larger font, 24 - 40. Use color to emphasize the important points.
Pictures, charts and graphs are very effective when kept simple. Too much detail will obscure the main points.
- Use color!
- Information flow is most effective if it is from left to right and top to bottom.
- Your posted materials should be as self explanatory as possible. Attract the audience's attention and then answer detailed questions.
- Consider that the viewers will be two to three meters away from your material and adjust the print font, charts, graphs, and figures accordingly. The audience will not have the time or the space to read pages of text.
- The audience at poster sessions moves! They may want to visit several posters during the session. If you are planning to give a presentation of your material it will probably have to be repeated several times as the audience changes. Keep it short, hit the high points and invite questions.
- Some attendees may be very interested in your topic and will want to monopolize your session time with questions. This may turn away other attendees that are also interested. Recognize this as a factor and be prepared to acknowledge all visitors.
- If you want to interact with certain audience members later, have cards with your contact information available.
- The complete paper is available in the Conference Proceedings that all attendees will have.
