Technical Oral Sessions

Papers are allocated approximately 15 minutes for presentation and additional 2-3 minutes for questions and answers. To meet the allocated time, it is recommended that you allocate about 2 minutes per slide when discussing equations or introducing novel concepts, and one minute per slide when the content is more self explanatory. For the benefit of your audience, do keep your slides simple and easy to read. Please try not to make too points per slide. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping the program on schedule.

All Chairpersons and Presenters are requested to be in the session room at least 15 minutes prior to the commencement of each session. 

Presenters of the technical oral paper presentation should approach your session chair 10 minutes before your session. Take note that Session Chairs will be taking attendance. If time permits, please also test any presentation equipment you might need during your presentation. 

The presentation room will be equipped with a laptop, a projector, a microphone and a pointing device. Laptop will be running Microsoft Windows XP and have Microsoft PowerPoint and PDF. 
Please ensure that your slides are stored in a format that can be displayed by the software. If other audio or video equipment is required, please contact the conference secretariat to indicae your request. 
Please take extra care in handling the following issues that could typically cause technical problems: 
  • Displaying on Windows slides created on a Mac/Linux platform
  • Playback of audio/visual content
  • Special fonts, e.g. math or foreign language that are used in the presentation
