Example “Good Slides” for a CHI Paper Presentation

Joshua B. Gross, Penn State |

straightforward overview
Straightforward Overview
  • Purpose/value statement
  • Principles of a good slide presentation
  • Example good slides
  • Conclusion - good slides are a good start to a good presentation
  • Acknowledgements
statement of purpose value
Statement of Purpose/Value
  • A good presentation starts with a statement of the value of the work
    • Why should people care?
    • Why should they hear your talk?
    • What contribution have you made?
  • This information is probably in your abstract, but should be distilled for the slide
presenting background work
Presenting Background Work
  • Don’t try to present all the background
    • Just one or two really crucial elements
    • The CHI audience is broad, so briefly describe
    • Examples follow
  • Participatory Design
    • The theory and practice of involving users at some or all stages of design
  • Semiotics
    • A theory of how systems of symbols (like a language) communicate ideas
citing prior work
Citing Prior Work
  • It may be beneficial to cite prior work
    • It should be important and relevant
  • Use this style (Simon, H. A., 1975)
  • Often, this is used to give your audience a perspective
    • “Participatory design (Nardi, B. A., 1993)”

is not the same as

    • “Participatory design (Bodker, S., 2000)”
visual design
Visual Design
  • The pre-packaged Powerpoint slides are ugly.
  • A plain background is not ugly.
  • If you aren’t a graphic designer, don’t try to be :-)
  • Simple, Consistent, and Legible.
presenting data
Presenting Data
  • Use simple charts/graphs, with (ideally) one main point per chart/graph
    • Don’t try to jam too much data in your graph
  • Labels x and y axis, and units
  • Use a title that clearly explains the idea you are trying to get across
graphs and charts part 2
Graphs and Charts, Part 2
  • Don’t just accept defaults from Excel
    • Colors (including background) may need to be changed
    • Axis dimensions and scale can be changed
  • Make sure text is big enough
  • Move legend to where it is most useful
  • Make sure colors & background are visible on a projection display
  • Acronyms are dangerous
    • Example: ERP
    • Does it mean Enterprise Resources Planner
      • Large-scale corporate planning software
    • Or does it mean Event-Related Potential
      • Reactions measure via electroencephalograph
  • Always spell out acronyms at first use
    • E.g. Event-Related Potential (ERP)
    • One safe exception - HCI!
slang and colloquialisms
Slang and Colloquialisms
  • Avoid slang and colloquialisms if at all possible
    • CHI is an English-language conference
    • 2 billion people speak English
    • Lots of dialect and regionality
  • Make your message clear to people who speak English as a second language
    • Or third, or fourth…
future work
Future Work
  • You may want to talk about future work
    • Work you intend to do
    • Work you may have already done
  • It’s been up to six months since you submitted your paper
    • What direction is the work taking
    • What do you see as the major next hurdle or accomplishment
summary and acknowledgements
Summary and Acknowledgements
  • Summarize your major contributions
    • Good slides are the basis of a good talk
    • Assume a broad audience at CHI
    • Make sure your content is readable
    • Stop on your summary slide - this is useful for your audience
  • Acknowledgements
    • Funding
    • People
  • Include your contact information
answering questions
Answering Questions
  • An advanced tip is to have a few slides ready for questions you anticipate
    • You won’t always have one for each question asked, and you may not use them, but they can be handy
  • This is a useful place to put additional/supporting data, references, etc.
