Presentation Guidelines

The following guidelines should help you prepare for your presentation at IVCNZ 2012. Regardless of whether you have an oral or poster presentaion, conference attendees will have access to electronic versions of your paper, so you do not need to include all of the technical details in your presentation.

Oral Presentations

Papers that have been accepted as oral presentations will be allocated 15 minutes to present the paper, followed by 5 minutes of question time. In order to run a successful single-track conference, and to encourage time for questions and discussion, these time limits will be enforced quite strictly.

Computer and projection facilities will be provided, running both Windows 7 and Mac OS X with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and Keynote (OS X only) available. You will also be able to connect your own device via a VGA interface.

Poster Presentations

Space will be available for posters up to portrait A0 size (1189 mm high by 841 mm wide). Posters should be an eye-catching display of your paper's methodology and key results, and not just a copy of your paper.

You will also be asked to give a 1 minute introduction to your paper. You will have a single, static slide to talk to. The purpose of these introductions is to invide people to come and visit your poster, not to explain any technical detail.

Slides for the poster presentation should be sent to with the subject line "Poster Slide".

  • A single PDF page is preferred, in a 4x3 aspect ratio, although we will do our best to convert other formats.
  • If we do not receive a slide by Friday 23rd November, we will produce one for you.
  • Please do not provide multiple slides or animated material - your slide will be made part of a larger presentation which will be run by the session chair.
