1. Oral Presentation Instructions

ISSS-MDBS06 will provide a Video Projector for presentations in each conference room. A limited number of Overhead Projectors will be available only if requested. The alloted time for slide presentations is 15 minutes.

It is IMPORTANT to note:
When creating your presentation, please prepare your PowerPoint document using Microsoft Office or Adobe Acrobat. Your presentation should be brought on a 3.5" disk, CD-ROM or other storage devices for uploading prior to your presentation. It is the responsibility of the presenting Author to load the presentation onto the computer supplied and ensure the presentation operates properly. ISSS-MDBS06 recommends having a "back up" presentation available in the event of technical difficulties.


2. Poster Presentation Instructions

Poster sessions are a valuable method for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. Therefore, it is important that you display your results clearly to attract people who have an interest in your work and your paper.

  • Your poster should cover the KEY POINTS of your work. The ideal poster is designed to (1) attract attention; (2) provide a brief overview of your work; and (3) initiate discussion and questions.
  • The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 25mm (1") high. The author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) are put below the title.
  • All poster sessions will provide boards to host poster, which will measure Width [3.0 ft (0.90m)] X Height [4.0 ft (1.20 m)] . The conference organizers will provide you double-sided adhesive tape to post your material on the board.
  • Carefully prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time or materials available for last minute preparations at the conference. If you think you may need certain materials to repair the poster after traveling, BRING THEM WITH YOU.
  • Use color to highlight and make your poster more attractive, and use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than only text wherever possible.
    The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9mm (3/8") high, and the important points should be in a larger size.
  • Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible, which will save you time to use for discussions and questions.
