Oral Paper Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentation sessions will consist of 4-5 papers per session. They will be of 1 hour 30 minutes duration.

The purpose of the presentation is not to present the paper as such, but to highlight its key argument and to open a discussion. As a result, our policy is to give presenters no more than 15 minutes each. Below are some guidelines to help you prepare your presentation.

Tips Regarding the Presentation:
Be as succinct as possible. Remember the audience has only seconds to read and grasp the meaning of each slide.

Judicious use of animation can enliven an otherwise dull presentation.

Try to avoid overloading your presentation with unnecessary images.

Please arrive at your session meeting room at least 5 minutes before the session begins. Take time to familiarize yourself with the set-up at the presentation room. You will control/advance the slides during your presentation.

Equipment set up: Each room is equipped with a standard audio-visual package that will support an electronic presentation. The package includes the following items:
•         LCD Projector (1024 x 768 resolution)
•         Projection Screen – Appropriate Size for Meeting Space
•         Power Cord and Cabling

NOTE: Laptops and Flip charts are NOT provided as standard items. Presenters MUST bring their own laptops.

Schedule and Timing:
The conference schedule will  be uploaded on the conference website. Please go through it carefully and check the date and time of the session in which your paper is scheduled for presentation.
