Oral and poster presentations are two
equally important and valuable methods for
presenting papers at ICC 2006.
Each technical session room will be set with
an LCD projector, lavaliere microphone and
laser pointer. Please bring your own laptop.
Speaker rehearsal room with LCD projector
will be available for presenters who wish to
rehearse their presentations. (Check on-site
program for exact location).
Oral presentation consists of 15 minutes for
presentation of the problem, the background,
the innovative approach, the new results and
the comparative evaluation. An additional 3
minutes are available for discussion with
the attendees. The presenter should prepare
a reasonable number of illustrations -
transparencies or a Power Point file, so as
not to exceed the 18 minute time. Typically,
1 illustration is presented in 1 minute.
Additional illustrations could be prepared
to support possible answers to attendees'
Each illustration should not be crowded by
text and graphics. Too much text should be
avoided: illustrations should support the
presentation, they should not be simply read
by the presenter. Graphics help in
communications, are more understandable, and
point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts
so they can be read without a major effort;:
typically 18-20 point fonts should be used.
Presentation should be clearly structured.
Begin with a title page. The index of the
presentation should outline the
presentation. The basic problem should be
clearly stated, as well as the application
area. Background and previous work should be
summarized to provide a prospective for the
results presented in the paper. The
innovative approach should be clearly
stated. The application of the approach to
the application problem should be described,
by pointing out the main features and
characteristics, the problems and the
solutions. The results should be clearly
outlined and evaluated. Appropriate
comparisons with previous results should be
presented. Conclusions should summarize the
work performed and point out the main
innovation and results. Future work and
developments could also be sketched.
The poster session areas will be set with
poster boards and a small table. The poster
paper material must fit in a 4'x4' space
(two posters will share one side of a 4'x8'
poster board. Thumb tacks to attach the
papers will be available. All the poster
papers will be provided by the author(s).
The poster must be up before the start of
the listed poster session times and an
author must be present during a designated
The heading should list the paper title,
author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). It
should be in bold face type and readable
from a distance of 2 m.
The abstract should summarize the pertinent
results and conclusions. The introduction
should state the purpose of the work in
relation to previous work in the field. The
results section should indicate the most
important findings. The conclusions should
give the interpretation and the significance
of the results. The references to previous
work may be appropriate.
The font size for the headings of the
abstract, introduction, results,
conclusions, references, and any other
sections, and the text and the captions for
figures and graphs should be readable from a
distance of one meter.
While the poster paper does require some
text, e.g., in the abstract, conclusion and
references sections, at least one-half of
the poster area should be devoted to
figures, graphs or photographs: the adage
about one picture being worth 10,000 words
is relevant in this case.
Authors are encouraged to check their
poster's correctness via a trial run with
their colleagues at their home institutions
rather than seeing it for the first time at
