Each oral presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes; it is recommended that each
speaker leaves 3-5 minutes for questions.
1) Please be in session 15 mins before start to upload your presentation
2) No use of personal laptops ; the equipment in the room must be used
3) The computers will have Microsoft Office and Acrobat Reader. Please contact TPC chairs if any other formats are requested.
The Technical Interactive Session (TIS) provides an opportunity for the
presenter to engage in direct discussions with small groups of interested workshop attendees on
an informal basis. Be prepared to use your time at the TIS session to explain your work and to
answer specific questions. Software and/or hardware demonstrations are welcomed and encouraged.
Before the conference, we will provide an opportunity to have your material reviewed and provide
feedback to avoid common mistakes that make it difficult to convey your ideas at the TIS session.
Here are some guidelines to help your preparation for the TIS presentation:
1. Poster Space: Plan on using an area that is 48’’x 36’’ (1.22 m— 0.91 m).
2. Use bullet lists, charts, figures, tables, equations, and photographs as applicable to highlight the important technical content of your work. The use of color graphics and headline style phrases in bullet charts will allow the audience to quickly see the theme of your presentation and grasp your intended message. It is also a good idea to sequentially number your posted material or use arrows to indicate flow of material. This will indicate to the viewer a logical progression through your presentation. Simply posting the pages of the written version of your paper is a very poor presentation for the TIS.
3. The title of your paper should appear in block letters, which are recommended at least 5 cm high (2 in). The remaining text should be at least 2 cm high (1 in) to be easily legible to viewers who are standing as far as 2 meters away. Each graph or chart with text should also be readable from 1-2 meters away. Provide an Introduction or Outline, and Summary or Conclusion. Remember to keep text short and concise, and highlight the key points and significance of your work (use phrases instead of complete sentences).
4. Your presentation material must be available for viewing and you must be available for discussion during the entire TIS session. If you wish to step away from your presentation, please inform the TPC Chair and return as soon as possible. Your presentation will be clustered with other presentations having a similar topic, so an interested viewer is likely to appear at any time during the session. It is also helpful to have paper copies of your written submission to the workshop Digest available for visitors to take with them. Presenters often provide their business cards and solicit the cards of their visitors so they may correspond with one another in the future.
All material should be removed promptly at the conclusion of the TIS session.
