  • Some Suggestions for your Oral Presentation
    Use sans-serif 16 to 20 Point fonts for text or numbers.
    Use heavy line thickness for graphics.
    Content: Use short clear text. Remember that people can not read and listen at the same time. Show information piece by piece, build to the conclusion and use simple diagrams.
    If your talk is in the parallel sessions 2b, 6b, 9b, 12b, please be aware that the bottom part of your slides has limited visibility.
    Plan on one slide for each minute of talk.
  • Recommendations for Keynote Speakers
    Keynote speakers should give a broad overview of past and current research (worldwide, not only their own research). Please emphasize the major research achievements and breakthroughs, and present the main challenges and perspectives for the future.
