Oral Presentation Instructions
Oral presentations consist of varied time for presentation of the final paper, which consists of the presentation and a question and answer section. Please include such content as the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results, and any comparative evaulation that the author wishes to present.
The presenter is required to bring the presentation on a memory stick to the session to which the paper is assigned. The presentation may also be uploaded to EDAS as a back-up method only.
Each paper is allocated 15 minutes of time--please leave a few minutes at the end for discussion and questions. Presentations should be clearly structured, and should contain the essential elements of the accepted formal paper. The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of PowerPoint slides, so as not to exceed the time limit. Typically, 1 slide is presented in 1 minute. Slides should not be overcrowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided. Slides should support the presentation, they should not simply be read by the presenter. Graphics help in communication, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts so as they are readable without efforts; typically, 20 point fonts should be used.
Please fill out the presenter biography within your EDAS account, before arriving in Chania. This will help the session chair introduce you during the session.
