  5. Some Tips onTechnical Paper Presentation

  6. Text • Keep the text as brief as possible. • Data looks better organized & easier to comprehend if given in POINTS. • No more than 10 lines of text (or points) per slide. • All letters on the slide should be big enough to make it readable even at the back of the auditorium.

  7. Slide Background & Readability Choose an attractive picture (related to your topic, of course) as the background for your TITLE slide. For the other following slides, background and text should be in contrasting colors. A light background & dark print works well. A dark background & light print also works well. A dark background & dark print??? Not so much... A light background & light print??? Not at all!

  8. Graphs & Figures • A well-documented graph or figure is way more attractive and better than lengthy text. • Tables are difficult to read; represent data graphically whenever possible. • A photograph often is worth a thousand words.

  9. Speech & Slides • Speak confidently, clearly & loudly. • Neither be too slow nor too fast, speak in a constant comprehendible speed. • Look at the audience while you speak, not so much at the judges. • Use a little informal speech so as to capture the attention of your audience & to make it less boring for them. Continuous scientific speech will only put them to sleep! • Ask a few questions to the audience so as to engage them in your presentation. • For a typical 7-minute presentation you should not exceed 14 slides. • Generally, you will talk at a speed of about 30-45 seconds per slide. This, of course, depends on how much you put on the slide and how fast you talk – but it’s a reasonable target. • Including attractive pictures and/or photographs will make your presentation interesting. • Photographs & tables should be explained but not in detail. • Explain graphs, flow-charts & technical diagrams. • Animate your slides to a minimum, too much animation will not only increase the size of your presentation file, it might kill your time as well. • Always practice your presentation by saying it out loud many times so as to gauge the timing before presenting it at the conference.
