GUIDELINES FOR SESSION CHAIRS
The chair of each session is expected to arrive
at the session room at least 10 minutes before the session begins,
and to check the attendance of speakers in the session according
to the schedule. Each speaker has 20 minutes for both presentation
and discussion. The chair may ask speakers who bring their own laptops
to do a compatibility test before the session begins.
GUIDELINES FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS
Oral presentations have high scientific relevance.
It is essential that you take this presentation seriously and prepare
your presentation to highlight the novel contribution of your research
to the fullest.
Presenters at all sessions are required to show up at their corresponding sessions
15 minutes in advance of the first paper. Each oral presentation
at ICDAR2009 is allocated 20 minutes. 15 minutes for the presentation
and the rest for questions / answers from the audience moderated
by the session chair. It is necessary to stay on schedule so people
moving between sessions can attend to the presentations they plan to.
Plan your talk and the number of slides
to allow for a relaxed pace. A usual recommendation is of one slide
Preparing slides. Prepare
a legible presentation. Rooms in ICDAR2009 (Arnau de Vilanova,
Lluis Vives I and Lluis Vives II) can accommodate 400, 200 and
140 people in conference/classroom style seating respectively.
In your slides, make good use of font sizes, color and contrast.
Your presentation must be legible from the back row, with decent
lighting. As a rule of thumb, if you can stand two meters away from your computers
monitor and easily read your slides, your slides are good enough.
A/V equipment. All
session rooms will be equipped with a laptop computer and
a LCD projector. Presenters are expected to copy their presentations to
the provided laptop off their own CD-ROMs or USB Memory sticks before the session begins.
You can alternatively use your own equipment, but in such a case you are strongly adviced to
to connect your equipment and test the signal matching before the session begins.
