Speaker Presentation Guide

The conference includes both long presentations (30 minutes - 25 min. presentation + 5 min. QA) and short presentations (15 minutes - 12 min. presentation + 3 min. QA).

The conference sessions within each track will be either 90 or 120 minutes. Special sessions and invited papers may have a different duration. Your presentation should be given from your own laptop computer. A video projector will be provided in each session room. Laser pointers will be available at the podium. Please note that ICCD does not support using transparencies or 35mm slides.

Guidelines for preparing your presentation charts

    • Use large, bold fonts as much as possible
    • Use fonts that display well at low resolution. Sans serif fonts such as "Helvetica" work better than ones with detailed features such as "Times"
    • Avoid using busy foils; incorporate one idea per slide and use less text and more pictures
    • Avoid using the bottom of slides since the rooms are flat
    • Use simple and contrasting colors. Avoid using red over blue or vice versa
    • Pay attention to contrast, employ light-on-dark, or dark-on-light in all text and diagrams

While attending the conference, there will be a room available to check your presentation. Each session is moderated by a session chair, who can also assist with any questions. Please prepare a brief (two or three sentence) biography for your session chair to introduce you.

For contact information on your session chair, or if you have any special audiovisual presentation requirement, please send email to the Technical Program Chair: Peter-Michael Seidel, seidel@engr.smu.edu.
