Presentation Guidelines

Guidelines for Oral Presentations
  1. Each lecture session is allocated 100 minutes. Please arrive at the room 15 minutes before your session begins and report to the session chair(s), also make sure that your presentation device (e.g., laptop) connects properly with the projector
  2. Each paper is allocated 20 minutes. We recommend that you spend about 15 minutes for the presentation, and leave around 4 mins of Q&A and 1 min for changeover.

All lecture rooms will be equipped with a video projector and a screen. No computers will be provided in the lecture room.

The APSIPA conferences have traditionally asserted great deal of importance on the quality of presentations. Below are some suggestions for preparing quality presentations:

  • Organize your slides around the points you intend to make, using no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 2 minutes per slide when there are equations or important key points to make, and one minute per slide when the content is less complex. Slides are used to attract and retain attention, and they can reinforce what you say – provided you keep them simple and easy to read.
  • Make sure each of your key points is easy to explain with aid of the materials on your slides. Do not read directly from the slides during your presentation.
  • It is a good practice that you rehearse your presentation in front of an audience before you give your presentation at the conference. Presenters must be sufficiently familiar with the technical contents of the paper to answer questions from the audience.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Every accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend and do not have a qualified proxy presented at the conference will be added to a “No-Show List”. The “No-Show” papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEE Xplore, EI Compendex or other public access forums, but these papers will be included in the electronic proceedings accessible through the APSIPA conference website and the Copyright form that the authors submitted will still be valid.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

A board will be provided for each poster, which should NOT be bigger than the A0 size: ~84cm X 119cm (width x height, i.e., portrait). Double-sided tape or pins will be provided at the conference to mount the poster on the board. Posters are expected to be mounted before the beginning of the scheduled session, and taken down after the end of the session.

There will be no oral summary presentations given at the beginning of the poster sessions at APSIPA ASC 2018. So authors need not prepare any overhead slides for their poster presentations. You may bring additional battery-operated audio or visual aids to enhance your poster presentation. Authors (presenters) are expected to be by their poster for the entire period of the session.

Below are some suggestions for a fruitful poster presentation:

  • The poster should cover key points of the paper. It needs not, and should not, attempt to include all the details which are expected to be described in person to people who are interested. An ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. Carefully prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. Try tacking up the poster before you leave for the conference to see what it will look like and to make sure that you have all of the necessary pieces.
  • Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster throughout the 100-minute poster session. If possible, more than one author should attend the session to aid in presentations and discussions, and to provide the presenters with the chance to rest or briefly view other posters.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Every accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend and do not have a qualified proxy presented at the conference will be added to a “No-Show List”. The “No-Show” papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEE Xplore, EI Compendex or other public access forums, but these papers will be included in the electronic proceedings accessible through the APSIPA conference website and the Copyright form that the authors submitted will still be valid.
