Please observe the following guidelines as
you prepare your presentation (either oral or poster) for
RAWCON2003. Many of these suggestions may seem obvious,
and they are all fairly easy to follow. The more you follow
these guidelines, the more likely it is that the audience
(most of whom are not experts in your subject) will comprehend
Presentation Outline and Contents
In many cases the Introduction is the most important part
of your presentation. Most of the people watching a RAWCON
oral presentation (or standing near a poster) are not specialists
in your field. One of the purposes of RAWCON is for attendees
to learn outside their specialty. Therefore your Introduction
Explain the question that is addressed
by your work
Explain the original aspects of your work
Explain the significance of your results
Point out any connections between your
results and other disciplines or specialties
The Body describes your methods and results:
- Show your most important results first.
- Emphasize block diagrams and plots, not words and equations.
- If some of your results do not fit into the allotted time
or space, refer the audience to your printed paper in the
- Remind the audience of the original question
- Briefly restate your results and their significance
Some members of your audience will be sitting in the back
of the room, or standing at the back of the group near your
poster. Your presentation must be readable to them.
- Use large fonts and high contrast colors for text
- Use wide and dark lines, and high contrast in plots
- Please do NOT just display pages from your printed paper
For oral presentations, presenters have the choice of using
hard-copy viewgraphs on an overhead projector, or connecting
their laptop computer to a VGA projector. In case of operational
difficulties with the VGA projector, we recommend that authors
bring hard-copy viewgraphs as a backup.
Poster presenters have the opportunity to show one or two
viewgraphs during the "Poster Preview" segment prior
to the Poster Session. In order to save time we would prefer
that poster presenters use hard-copy viewgraphs instead of
the VGA projector for the "Poster Preview".
Speaker Preparation at the Conference
The Amherst room has been made available for speaker
preparation. This room will have tables and power strips for
plugging in your laptops.
