Important notice38 l.jpg

IMPORTANT NOTICE

  • The Proceedings CD will be distributed DURING the Symposium!

    • Changes received after the established deadlines will NOTbe included in the Proceedings CD!


Some bad examples l.jpg

Some Bad Examples

  • The next three slides show examples of bad practices that should be avoided:

    • Bad slide layout

    • Improper color use

    • Sound and transition effects gone mad


Press the enter key to continue l.jpg

(Press the “Enter” key to continue)

  • This slide has no title. Titles help guide the audience through the talk. All slides except photographs should have a title.

  • The type on this slide is too small. It’s readable here, but when projected, only the presenter and maybe those in the front rows will be able to read it. Those in the back will be completely lost.

  • USE OF ALL CAPITAL LETTERS OR ITALICS also makes slides difficult to read. Use dark backgrounds; not light!

  • This slide would be easier to follow if indentations were used.

  • Don’t design your slides to stand alone. They are a guide to your presentation. If they were understandable by themselves, we could just publish them and forget about presentations! Your slides support what you say: They don’t replace it.

  • This slide has too many words and too many points. Keep your slides under nine lines.
