Welcome! This is the last stage of the long process before attending SOC Conference 2020, and you are almost done. Consider presentation of your papers as an opportunity to impress experts in your field. Please read the following instructions and prepare your presentation materials accordingly. If you have any questions, please contact the Program Chairs.
- All accepted papers (regular, poster, and design track) will be presented in the SOC Conference 2020.
- Regular paper: 12 minutes presentation + 3 minutes Q&A.
- Design track paper: 10 minutes presentation + 2 minutes Q&A.
- Poster paper: 5 minutes presentation (separate Q&A session).
- All presentations must be pre-recorded and submitted on EDAS by September 4, 2020.
- At least one author of the paper must be present in the session where the paper is scheduled to answer questions.
- Speaker information (name and a short bio) must be uploaded to the EDAS system by September 4, 2020.
To upload your short biography, you need to indicate the presenter's name on your paper submission page and then save the bio there.
- Physical posters for poster papers are not required this year.
Each session will be managed by a Session Chair, who will also serve as a moderator during the question-and-answer period.
- Session information (session title, session chair, paper titles and presenters) will be made online.
- For sessions of regular papers and design track papers, each paper will be presented one by one in the assigned period, starting with the oral presentation (either in person or play of the pre-recorded video) and followed by the Q&A.
- For poster papers, the pre-recorded video will be played and Q&A will be scheduled in another session.
Content of Your Presentation
- Briefly outline your talk and what will be covered.
- Define your problem. What led to your work? What were your objectives?
- Outline the course of your work.
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of your methods or devices?
- Suggest improvements or areas for further enhancements.
PowerPoint Presentation Instructions
- Keep each slide as simple as possible. Do not use long complicated slides.
- Limit each slide to one main idea. Use slides to supplement and support your oral presentation, not simply to repeat what you are saying.
- Use several simple slides rather than one complicated one especially if you will be discussing it at length.
- Use duplicates if you need to refer to the same slide at different times instead of going back to the slide.
- Use simple and large fonts.
- Do not embed video clips in your slides.
There are many ways to record your presentation. Links to some of them are listed below for your convenience.
You can use any one of them for the recording as long as the file is in MP4 format (you may need to convert it if it is not) so you can submit via EDAS.
