Guidelines of presentations in ISAO2018

Oral Presentation

The time allocated for a presentation is 40 minutes in Keynote lecture and 20 minutes in others, both including Q and A.

A Windows PC (Windows 10 for ppt, pptx, pdf files) is set up in the meeting room.

Please bring your power point file in a virus-scanned USB memory to the ISAO staff in the meeting room to upload the file to the computer prior to your presentation. You can make sure how your presentation is displayed in the next room where the same PC is set. We recommend you to save the back-up data as a pdf file in case your power point file is not displayed as expected.

Movie files compatible with Windows Media Player can be used with the presentations. If you are not sure about the compatibility, please confirm the compatibility before the session or during the break. Laser pointing device with frame advance function will be provided.

Poster Presentation

We set up wide poster boards in the meeting room, and put a label of your poster number on the board. A0 size (840 x 1198 mm) or similar sizes of posters are available. Please put your poster on the poster board to use scotch tape by yourself prior to the poster session (11th afternoon). Scotch tapes will be provided in the poster area. Pushpins should not be used. Please note that the set-up and removal of posters are the presenters’ responsibility.
