Presentation time is critical:
each paper is allocated 15-20 minutes for oral
sessions. We recommend leaving 2-3 minutes for
introduction, summary, and questions from the
audience. Slides attract and hold attention, and
reinforce what you say - provided you keep them
simple and easy to read. English is the only
language for presentation.
Make sure each of your key points is easy to explain
with aid of the material on your slides. Do not read
directly from the slide during your presentation.
You shouldn't need to prepare a written speech,
although it is often a good idea to prepare the
opening and closing sentences in advance. It is very
important that you rehearse your presentation in
front of an audience before you give your
presentation. Presenters must be sufficiently
familiar with the material being presented to answer
detailed questions from the audience.
A computer-driven slideshow for use with a data
projector is recommended for your talk at ICMME. All
presentation rooms will be equipped with a laptop,
internet access, a data projector, HDMI and VGA
cables, and a pointer.
Please arrive at the designated meeting room 30
minutes earlier, in case some authors are not able
to make the presentation on time
One excellent presentation will be selected and
awarded from each session. The presentations will be
evaluated from Applicability, Originality,
Significance, Visual Aids, English Delivery, and
Timeliness, six aspects. The presentation
certificates will be given at the end of each
session by session chairs.
Poster sessions are a good medium for authors to present
papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth
technical discussions. In addition, attendees find the
poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in
parallel sessions. Thus it is important that you display
your message clearly and noticeably to attract people
who might have an interest in your paper.
Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It
need not, and should not, attempt to include all the
details; you can describe them in person to people who
are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract
attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and
initiate discussion. Carefully and completely prepare
your poster well in advance of the conference. Try
tacking up the poster before you leave for the
conference to see what it will look like and to make
sure that you have all of the necessary pieces.
For your poster, a board / stand will be provided;
dimensions should be 841mm X 594mm (A1 size).
The conference name (ICMME 2018) should appear at the
top left. Below the title put the author(s)' name(s) and
affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from
the top left to the bottom right. Use color for
highlighting and to make your poster more attractive.
Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather
than text wherever possible. Try to state your main
result in 6 lines or less, in lettering about 15mm high
so that people can read the poster from a distance. Make
your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will
save your efforts for technical discussions.
