Paper Presentation

Lecture Presentations

We recommend all speakers to pay special attention to their presentation time: each paper is allocated 20 minutes in oral sessions. Each presentation should take about 17-18 minutes, leaving 2-3 minutes for introduction, summary from the Chairman, as well as questions from the audience. To achieve appropriate timing, organize your slides around the points you intend to make, using no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 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. Plan on covering at most 6 points per slide, explained by 6 to 12 spoken sentences, and no more than about two spoken minutes.

A computer-driven slideshow for use with a data projector is recommended for your talk at CoSeRa. The presentation room will be equipped with a computer, a data projector, and a pointing device. If you need any other non-standard audio or visual equipment, such as a DVD player, or a 35mm slide projector, please send a request for such equipment by email to Such requests must be received at least one week in advance to the conference date. Failure to make prior arrangements may mean that the equipment will not be available to you. On the day of your presentation, please go to the allocated room 15 to 30 minutes before the session starts to upload your presentation on the PC in the room, to contact the Session Chair, and to make all due arrangements for your presentation.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussion. In addition, attendees find the poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel sessions. Therefore, it is important that you display your message clearly and noticeably to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.

The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. Carefully and completely prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 25mm high. Below the title put the author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right. Use arrows to lead your viewer through the poster. Use color for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than text wherever possible. Try to state your main result in 6 lines or less, in lettering about 15mm high so that people can read the poster from a distance. The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9mm high, and the important points should be in a larger size. Posters will be on display for discussion for the whole duration of your poster session. Presenters are kindly requested to stand by their posters during their session.

Poster size must not exceed 95 cm width and 135 cm height. The poster board will be identified by the corresponding number shown at the top of the board. Adhesive plasticine for attaching posters will be provided by poster assistants, no pins or tapes are allowed.

On the day of your presentation, please go to the allocated board in the poster area 15 to 30 minutes before the session starts to set up your poster and notify the Session Chair of your presence.
