Presentation Guidelines

Oral Guideline

The duration of a presentation slot is 18 minutes. You will have 15 minutes for the presentation itself and 3 minutes for questions from the audience.

An LCD projector & computer (Windows XP, MS Powerpoint 2010, Adobe Acrobat Reader, MathType 6.7) will be available in every session room for regular presentations. Neither Overhead projector, 35mm slides projector nor VHS videotape player will be available.

Preparation of Visuals Files can be uploaded to the local PCs in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. To avoid software compatibility problems (MS Powerpoint 2010), speakers are advised to save their Powerpoint presentation with the Package for USB feature AND bring a backup PDF-version of their presentation.

Speakers should arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the chair person. A staff will also be available in case you need technical assistance.

Poster Guideline

A large number of posters will be presented during the two days of the conference. In order to make the poster sessions run smoothly, some cooperation from you, as a poster exhibitor, is necessary. First of all, it is essential that your poster is put up just before your session and removed immediately after it has ended.

The placement of your poster will be marked on the panel, where it will be presented with the number of your poster contribution: Ex. B5P-Q.1 (B5P-Q =Poster Session Number, 1=Poster Panel Number). The poster panel number is the order of the papers that appear on the conference program. Look for your number in the conference program.

Each presenter can use 2 poster panels for presentation. The size of each panel (in centimeter) is 90cm*180cm (horizontal length*vertical height).

ISCAS 2013 Demo Guidelines

Because live demonstrations must be actually demonstrated to be publishable, demo no-shows will not have their demo paper or demo description listed in IEEE XPlore (and their papers will be pulled from the online ISCAS proceedings).

All presenters will be provided with a place for their demo with a poster, a table and a China Standard power outlet. Additional equipment that has been requested and confirmed in advance will also be provided. You must bring with you anything that is needed that has not been requested and confirmed in advance, including adapters/power strips, monitors, illumination, etc. You cannot count on any particular lighting so plan accordingly for vision demonstrations. For auditory demonstrations, remember that the demo space will be very noisy. Also, you cannot count on fast (or necessarily any) internet access.

Bring a poster to support your demo (see the Poster Guidelines for specifications). Your poster should be minimal in terms of text and should have demo title, creators, with illustrations to support your talking points. NO ONE WILL READ YOUR DETAILED TEXT! Most people put far too much text and detail on their poster - aim for something people can view standing 3 meters away. You poster should guide people to your demo and then only support your verbal explanations of the functioning of your demonstration, and need not be self-contained. The quality of your poster and illustrations which support your explanation of your demonstration can count towards judging your demo for the best demo award. It may be very effective to prepare a print out on heavy stock with a few key illustrations to hold while explaining aspects of your demonstration to your audience, usually 2-4 people at one time.

Make a plan on showing 2 to 5 minutes demonstrations throughout the demo session. Demos can be set up in the session before the demo session, and must be dismantled after the demo session.
