Guidelines for Speakers

You are requested to adhere to following guidelines:

a)  There will be LCD and overhead available for presenting your paper.

b)  If you plan to make a PowerPoint presentation, please bring transparency slides as a backup. We have seen at several conferences that PPT files simply do not often open up!

c)  Plan to be in the session at least 5 minutes prior to the commencement of the session and introduce yourself to the Session Chair.

d)  You are encouraged to bring hard copies of your paper (30-40 copies recommended) for distribution to the audience. There is no facility to make copies or overhead transparencies.

e)  The session chair will divide available time to all speakers equally. Please allocate five minutes of time allotted to you for question-answers and use the rest of the time for presentation.

f)   It is really critical that you stay within the time that is allocated for your presentation in order to keep the program on track.

g)  The session chair is in full control of the time management. Please respect his/her directions.
