Conference Presentation Template
Please use this powerpoint presentation template for your conference paper. Revise it as you wish. Looking forward to seeing your paper at the conference.
Good Presentation Guide:
– When you arrive at the Conference venue ask for TMC reception/registration desk and check in by signing against your name on the registration lists. If you are a special rate registrant such as student, you may be asked to show evidence of that status.
– Go to the room where you will present about 5 minutes ago and introduce yourself to the session chair before the session kicks off.
– If you are using powerpoint, make sure you bring it on a clean USB stick and upload it onto the computer in the room before the session starts.
– If you need help or have a problem ask our volunteers. They wear different colour lanyards and often t-shirts. There are dozens of volunteers helping us in the organisation and many of them are from the host institution. They are there to help us but please do treat them with respect. Being nice always pays off.
– Sessions are usually 80-90 minutes long and this time is divided between 4 or 5 speakers. Therefore prepare your talk/presentation to be no more than 15 minutes and leave about 5 minutes for discussion.
– Crowded slides with a lot of quotes and text are less likely to be noticed by audiences. Please do try to prepare easy to follow slides with few key information/graphics to alert the audience. Don’t forget you are there to explain.
– You need no more than 10-15 slides to get your paper and ideas across. This is practically as much you can do. So prepare less.
– The length of your talk needs to be flexible as there can be delays and issues to tackle, so plan ahead and decide which slides to skip, in case you have to.
– Thank your session chair and the audience at the end of your presentation. Academic conferences are collaborative events to help the field progress. Audiences give feedback and play a sounding board role and often help us to improve our work.
– Thank you for paying attention to our guidelines.
