You will receive feedback on the content of your slides by Sunday, AUGUST

it to be available on the presentation computers in Stockholm. Please use

While you are in the slides submission system, please also take
a minute to fill out the speaker's biographical information. Please
include name, current title and affiliation, and research interests.
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.
Powerpoint 2002 and PDF Reader Acroread 6.0 will be
available on the conference computers. Please ensure that your
presentation is compatible with these versions. Please try to use only
standard fonts, since substitutions can affect slide layout.
Each paper will be included in a poster session. Please
prepare a poster of maximum size 90cm x 180cm, where 90cm is the horizontal

- 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.

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
- 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

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
