1. Presentations may only be given as PowerPoint or PDF presentations (preferably PPT). No other audio-visual medium (e.g., slide, video, or overhead) or software is allowed.
  2. Bring one copy of your presentation to the conference on a USB media storage device. This copy is to be used as a backup by you and the conference organizers if required. As an additional backup measure, consider saving an extra copy of your presentation on your web-accessible local server or email the file to yourself if the file size is small enough.
  3. Conference organizers will load all presentations on conference computers. Presenters will NOT be allowed to use their own laptop /computers. Apple computers will NOT be available.
  4. All presenters will be given the opportunity to check their presentations on-site, before their presentation time. You are encouraged to review your presentation at least 24 hours before your scheduled presentation, especially if it has any special or technically complex elements.
  5. Remember your presentation is limited to 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for Q/A. You will not be able to extend your time if you have technical problems during your talk.
  6. Keep visual aids simple. Convey only one idea per table, figure, or title slide. Figures from publications, theses, or dissertations normally do not make good PowerPoint slides. Too much detail detracts from the primary message of the slide. Use appropriate blank space.
  7. Slides should be readable to the unaided eye. You will be speaking in a large room. Text on title slides should be restricted to 7 lines. BIG IS BEAUTIFUL and easy to read.
  8. Be considerate of other speakers and the audience by staying within your allotted time. Session moderators will hold you to the allotted time. This is essential to ensure adequate time for questions and discussion as well as adherence to schedule.
  9. Please discuss the material as reported in the abstract.
  10. Give an opening statement to acquaint the audience with the nature and purpose of the study. Speak slowly and clearly. Word choice should be simple: use active words and short sentences. An introductory and a concluding graphic can greatly improve the focus of your talk.
  11. As a general rule, use one graphic for each 1 or 2 minutes of presentation time.
  12. All the participants must report on the registration desk on 30th May 2018 at 9:00 AM for verification and submission of PPT.
  13. The schedule and assigned code/number of the presentations can be inquired from the registration desk on 30th May 2018 at 9:00 AM.
  14. Presenter should take a seat in front when the Session starts.

PowerPoint Graphics

  1. Use appropriate and compatible colors for type and backgrounds; don’t be exotic. Color combinations with pleasing contrasts are preferable.
