1. Each lecture style session room will be equipped with a digital projector and a Windows laptop with PowerPoint and Acrobat Reader. You are welcome to bring your own laptop; however only VGA and HDMI cables are available - if you require an adapter for your laptop (e.g. most Apple laptops) you are advised to bring your own. (Note: Only the presentation laptop is connected to Internet; additional internet access is not available in this room; however the conference area is mostly covered by free WiFi if you need to access the Internet). If you intend to use the provided laptops, please ensure you have MULTIPLE BACKUP COPIES of your presentation (e.g. on a USB stick and in DropBox, Google drive etc.)
2. Each lecture style presentation is allocated 18 minutes. You should spend about 15 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation. An additional 3 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees. Each lecture style presentation in workshop is allocated 12 minutes inclusive 1-2 minutes for discussions with the attendees in workshop.
3. Sign the register to show that you presented your paper.
4. The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of illustrations so as not to exceed the 15 minute time. Typically, one illustration is presented in one to two minutes. Additional illustrations could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions if needed.
5. Some guidelines for preparing useful presentation: Your presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title page. 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 aspects of your approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the problem should be clearly 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.
