Speaker Presentation Guide

The conference includes presentations of 20 minutes + 5 min. QA (for the regular sessions) and presentations of 15 minutes + 5 min. QA (for the special sessions). A video projector and a computer will be provided in each session room. Laser pointers will be available at the podium. Please note that SAMOS does not support using transparencies or 35mm slides.

Guidelines for preparing your presentation charts

    • Use large, bold fonts as much as possible
    • Use fonts that display well at low resolution. Sans serif fonts such as "Helvetica" work better than ones with detailed features such as "Times"
    • Avoid using busy foils; incorporate one idea per slide and use less text and more pictures
    • Avoid using the bottom of slides since the rooms are flat
    • Use simple and contrasting colors. Avoid using red over blue or vice versa
    • Pay attention to contrast, employ light-on-dark, or dark-on-light in all text and diagrams

Each session is moderated by a session chair, who can also assist with any questions during the presentation. Remember to submit, by July 2017, the presentation slides and a short bio of the presenter. When you submit the files, please rename them as follow:
- PaperID_NamePresenter_Presentation.* (.ppt, .pptx, .pdf, etc.)
- PaperID_NamePresenter_Bio.txt.
