Guidelines for Presenting at the NZCSRSC 2008
Guidelines for Presentations
If you have had a full paper accepted, then you are required to give an oral presentation. Each presentation is 15 minutes long, + 5 minutes at the end for questions and discussion. 20 minutes is the total limit - the session chairs will inform you when your presentation time is nearly up. Presentations must be done by one of the student authors of the paper.
During your presentation, you will have access to an overhead projector, a camera-reader (like an OHP but can project regular pages), and a data projector with a computer with Powerpoint installed for any .PPT slides you wish to use.
If you have any files (.PPT etc) that you need to load onto the session computer for your presentation, you can either a) email us your files (by Friday 4th April 2008) so we can load them on, or b) bring them along on a USB stick so you can load them on yourself. If you bring the files on a USB stick, please load them on before the session begins to ensure a smooth session. If you email the files, we will confirm with you that they have been received (if you do not receive confirmation within two days, please send them again).
If you have any other technical requirements, please let us know before 31st March 2008, and we will endeavour to meet your request.
Here are some websites to help you create your presentation:
Guidelines for Posters
Each short paper accepted for the NZCSRSC 2008 will be presented by at least one of the student authors using a poster they have created, at the NZCSRSC poster session.
The required size for the poster is A1 (594 × 841mm), Landscape or Portrait (it's up to you). If it is difficult for you to print it out at this size, feel free to assemble it from several smaller sheets, to create the total size of A1 (see International Paper Sizes or Wikipedia Paper Sizes), though you will probably get a better visual result from using a single A1 sheet. At the conference we will be providing boards and something with which to apply the posters to the boards (blutack or drawing pins). It is the attendee's responsibility to print out the poster before arriving at the conference, and to bring it along. There are several websites providing information on how to design an effective poster. Links to two of these are given below (the first one also includes some examples on how NOT to do it)
