Instructions for Presentations


  • If a paper is not presented (oral or poster) by one of its authors, then the paper will be withdrawn from the proceedings and from IEEE Xplore. There will be NO exceptions to this policy.
  • Authors may not delegate presentation of their paper to anyone else.

Oral Presentation:

  • You must ensure that your presentation does not exceed 15 minutes. This will give 5 minutes for the session chair and audience to pose questions and have discussions. Please meet the session chair for your session at least 15 minutes before the session begins.
  • If you are using your own laptop for the presentation, please ensure that it is compatible with the projector present in the room. As a precautionary measure, please also bring a USB memory stick containing your presentation.
  • If you will be using the laptop present in the conference hall, please bring a USB memory stick containing your presentation. The laptop will have Microsoft PowerPoint available in it.

Poster Highlight Presentation:

  • During the Spotlight Session, poster presenters will have the opportunity to give a brief two-minute oral highlight of their poster in the conference hall. This presentation will serve as a prelude to the audience who will then view the poster in the following session.
  • To facilitate this, every presenter should prepare a two-slide presentation. This presentation should not contain any video or audio objects. Note that each presentation should have exactly two slides (including the title slide) – please click here for the template.
  • The slides should be sent by uploaded at CMT no later than September 2, 2016. These presentations will be preloaded in a single ppt onto the conference laptop to facilitate presentation in quick succession by each speaker. We regret that we cannot accommodate poster presentations on USB sticks brought to the session at the last minute, or presentations on authors’ laptops.
  • The slides in the Spotlight Session will be presented in quick succession. Therefore, each presentation must not exceed two minutes.

Poster Presentation:

  • All posters can be mounted from 8:00 am on the day of the presentation, and must be necessarily mounted before the poster session begins. Mounting boards and pins/adhesives will be available in the poster room.
  • The posters in each session will be numbered. The list of numbers will be posted next to the board. Please use your numbered location.
  • Authors must be present at their poster for the entire duration of their session.
  • Posters must be removed from their mounting only after the end of the session on the day of the presentation.
  • Each poster board will be of size 4ft x 8ft.
