Presentations will be limited to a maximum of 10 minutes in length (15
minutes if two people are presenting together) followed by some time
for questions. A few minutes of the presentation should be devoted to
providing a summary of previous research related to the topic, and the
remaining time can be used to describe initial work on your project
and its final goals. You probably have time to present about 10
slides in total.
A typical outline for your talk is as follows:
The most common approach to preparing slides is to use Microsoft
Powerpoint or other presentation software. Another method is to use a
document markup language, such as LaTex, using a slide mode with large
fonts. These can then be converted to PDF format, and shown using the
full-screen mode of Acrobat Reader.
Introduction and definition of problem (1-2 slides)
Summary of previous research on this problem (2-3 slides)
The approach you are using
Any initial results or experiments
Conclusions (1 slide)
If desired, you can email your presentation to me (email@example.com) a few
hours before your talk, and I will bring them loaded into my laptop
for you to use (or you may bring your own laptop if you prefer).
Following are some hints for successful presentations:
Don't try to memorize your talk or just read from the slides.
Instead, practice the presentation
to yourself (check timing) and remember the main points for
each slide that you
wish to communicate so that you do not need to read.
Don't fill your slides with text or equations. Some brief points will
be enough to remind you and the audience of the concepts you are
communicating. Images or illustrations are particularly valuable and
its worth devoting time to those. You can use illustrations from
papers by others if you clearly give credit on the slide.
Imagine yourself talking and explaining to a single person in the audience
rather than reciting a presentation.
Be sure to show enthusiasm for
your topic. Why should others care if you don't?
Don't worry about being nervous. It will just enhance your talk
as long as you are well prepared.
