  4. Projection
    We will provide a computer with an LCD projector for the presentation. We do not recommend the use of your personal laptop, as this tends to increase the time to set-up between presentations. However, if you choose to run the presentation from your own laptop, we ask that you connect your laptop to the monitor switch and test it thoroughly during the break before your presentation. Please note that only electronic slides will be supported. We will not have an overhead projector for transparencies or 35mm slides.

  • Practice your talk!!
  • Some speakers talk to slides longer than others. Nonetheless, for a 25 minute talk, 10 slides are probably too few and 30 slides are most definitely too many. The average time to talk to a slide (over all people) is 1.5 minutes. Most people take 1-2 minutes per slide. However, the important thing is to determine YOUR time/slide and plan the number of slides accordingly.
  • The first few slides should be simple to talk to. The relationship between speaker and audience as well as the confidence of the speaker in giving the presentation is normally established on the first 1-2 slides.
  • First-level bullets should be 24 point font size or larger (second level 20 point, third level 18 point). The use of four levels is strongly discouraged.
  • Try to use no more than four first-level bullets per slide.
  • Try to include a unique graphic on each slide, however small. Slides with only text tend to put the audience to sleep. Superfluous clip art is discouraged, but graphics that help orient the audience can be engaging.
  • Try to eliminate complex logos from appearing on the slide master, as they can distract the audience from the material you are presenting. Instead, include your website on the slide master, since that will matter most to those you are motivating to be interested in following your work!
  • Remember, many people will be attending the talks that are not deeply engaged in your research topic. Orient the audience as to why your work is important and unique.
  • Any graphic that is pertinent to your paper (and not just to increase the visual presentation) should be explained, especially experimental results.
  • Try to limit colors to no more than 6-8. Too many colors can be distracting.
  • Remember that your audience will be sitting through many talks. What are the most important points they will take away from yours? In general, this is only 2-3 main points. Everything on your slides should support those points.
