Oral Presentation

Each oral presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes including questions and discussion. Powerpoint or PDF slides are recommended for your talk.

The conference hall will be equipped with a presentation notebook with MS Office, Acrobat Reader, and popular programs like Windows Media Player for playing videos. Please contact us if you need any particular software for this purpose.

The presenters are kindly requested to copy their files to the conference presentation notebook and test at least 30 minutes before the session starts. We will ask the session chair to be there as well.

You can also use your own notebook for your presentation (although we do not recommend to do so). In this case we strongly suggest you make a thorough test before the sessions starts.

It is of utmost importance that authors keep to the presentation time limit to achieve appropriate timing. Therefore, please organize your slides around the points you intend to make, use no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 1-2 minutes per slide when there are equations or important key points to make, and one minute per slide when the content is less complex. Slides attract and hold attention and reinforce what you say – provided you keep them simple and easy to read.

Poster Presentation

Authors of poster presentations will give a one-minute pitch about their work during the Poster Highlight sessions. Please check the detailed program for your time slot. We ask the authors to prepare one slide for their pitch and send it to (subject: CAIP2015 – Paper (id) – Poster Slide) at most by August 20. Due to time restrictions the one-minute time slot is very strict.

The maximum poster size in portrait format is A0: 841mm (width) x 1189mm (height) and in landscape format A1: 841mm (width) x 594 (height). Tape and pins will be provided at the conference to mount posters on the boards.

Poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel. Thus, it is important that you display your message clearly and noticeably to attract people who might have an interest in your paper. Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It need not, and should not, attempt to include all the details, you can describe them in person to people who are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion.
