    1. Electronic Presentation Guidelinesfor Author Talks IMS2005/RFIC2005

    2. About this Presentation • View this presentation first as a slide show, then view the note pages for more detail • View --> Notes Page for important info! • Use a good virus checker • Confidentiality of information not guaranteed

    3. Purpose • Recommend guidelines for electronic slide presentation • Provide electronic template • The file you are reading has settings, colors and fonts that conform to IMS guidelines • You may edit this file and replace our slides with your presentation

    4. (Your Session # Here, e.g., TH1D-3 ) Place the Title of Your Paper HereAuthor Names should go nextCompany or Institution Logo Your Company or Institution Name HereYour AddressYour City, State, (Country) Zip Code

    5. Outline • After your title slide, your next slide should be your Outline Slide • Briefly tell the audience what you are going to cover • Cover only the main points on the outline

    6. Motivation • After your Outline slide, your next slide should be your “Motivation” Slide • Briefly tell the audience WHY you are doing your research. • Sell your audience on why your topic is important and of interest to them... • Generate interest in your topic...

    7. Pros & Cons • After your Motivation slide, your next slide should be your “Pros & Cons” Slide • Briefly enumerate for the audience the good points AND any problem areas encountered in your research. Be candid and up-front. • This will encourage the audience to pay attention to you, rather than work out the drawbacks for you, during your talk...

    8. Style Guidelines • Short phrases, not long sentences • Use Arial, or similar sans serif font • This line uses the Helvetica font • The rest of the document uses Arial • 36 Point Titles or larger! • 28 point text or larger! • Do not use fonts smaller than 28 point, so people in the back of the auditorium can read your slides!

    9. Special Fonts or Symbols • Watch out for: • Wingdings • MS Line Draw • Monotype Sorts • Scientific symbol fonts • Asian language fonts • Can embed TrueType fonts in file

    10. Style Guidelines (cont) • Roughly one slide per 1 or 2 minutes of talk • Each slide should have a title • 9 lines max on a text slide • 7 words max per line • In “File->Page Setup…” window specify: • Slides sized for: “On Screen Show” • Slide orientation: Landscape • High contrast: Light lettering/lines on a dark blue background

    11. Presentation Files • Session Chairpersons will collect and review all presentations at least one week in advance of the Symposium • One file per speaker • File totally self contained • No links to: • Other files • The internet

    12. Presentation Flow • Title slide • Outline slide (of your talk, not your paper) • Motivation • Pros and Cons • Detail slides (ie slides #5 and up) go here • Conclusion slide • Backup slides??

    13. Use a blank slide to focus attention on speaker

    14. Contrast • High contrast very important • Use light lines/text on a dark background • Foreground: White, yellow, light cyan • Background: Dark blue • Caution: Red, orange or blue lettering and lines become unreadable when projected

    15. FOR IMS CD-ROM • Make sure the file is readable when printed in black and white • necessary for Workshop notes and CD-ROM inclusion

    16. Display Speed • Slides should display instantly • Do not distract the audience with slow transition effects • Avoid overuse of slow graphics, fonts and special effects

    17. Transitions Between Slides • Special animation when changing from one slide to another • Usually highly distracting to audience • Don’t do it! • Default settings should be: • Effect: No transition • Speed: Fast • Advance: On mouse click

    18. Transitions Between Lines • Optional, and can be highly effective • Focus attention on a specific line of a slide • Dim previous lines • Make transitions be instantaneous • Use sparingly

    19. Sound Effects • DO NOT USE SOUND EFFECTS • Sound effects slow down slide transitions • Noise from projection computer may distract audience

    20. Borders • Borders are discouraged! • They reduce the amount of space available for your text and data • They slow down the slide display

    21. Diagram slides • Keep diagrams simple • Easy to view • Make text readable with large font • Use all space in rectangle • See View --> Notes Page • Example follows:

    22. Board 1 Board 2 Board 3 ASP ASP ASP tdo tck PSBM tms tdi trst Diagram (see View-->Notes Page)

    23. Presenting Data - Graphs • Use graphs, not tables • Keep graphs simple • Eliminate or subdue distracting grid lines • Use large font sizes including the numbering on the axes! • Example follows:

    24. Fault coverage vs. No. of Vectors 100 80 60 Fault Coverage (%) 40 20 0 1.0E+01 1.0E+03 1.0E+05 1.0E+06 No. of Vectors

    25. 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

    26. (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 IMS 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.

    27. Bad Color Usage Poor Contrast Board 1 Board 2 Board 3 ASP ASP ASP Text too tiny tck PSBM tms tdi trst

    28. How to Annoy The Audience (Press Enter) • Misuse sound • Overuse transition effects • Focus the audience on your slides, not the speaker • Try to use every feature PowerPoint has to offer

    29. Conclusion • Keep your slides simple • Use large fonts for high visibility • 36 pt for titles • 28 pt for details • High contrast colors • Highlight, don’t detail
