Copy Your Presentation File

Please copy your presentation file to the PC equipped in each session room. All the oral presenters are asked to bring their presentation files with own USB thumb drive.

In case you use your own PC, connection to the projector must be tested before your session starts. You are requested to bring necessary adapters (e.g. USB-VGA display adapter) to connect the VGA cable (there are no adapters available at the conference site). Please be sure to test and check all the presentation slides in advance to make sure they will work properly. It is the presenter’s responsibility to copy his/her presentation file as soon as possible in each session room at any break in advance to the session of presentation. The file must be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint or Adobe Acrobat on Microsoft Windows indicated above.

Short Oral Presentation and Poster Presentation:

Short Oral Presentation

All poster presenters MUST give the short oral presentations in Short Presentation session scheduled on September 12 PM. The presentation time is 1 minute, including the time needed to move on to the next presenter. For smooth progress of the session, the next presenter is asked to wait nearby in line for their turn. Only a PC projector will be available.

Please prepare your short oral presentation file in advance.
The presentation slides must be in 3-page PDF file in landscape orientation (the format of slides: 4:3), and the first page must indicate the paper title, name of authors and their affiliations only. Because of the limited presentation time, please describe your research objective and results briefly. Kindly refer to the sample Short Presentation File which can be found at the upload page. The file name should indicate your area, abstract number, and author's name (eg. Area1_C000001_S.Secretariat_short presentation file). Do not set password protection of the file, since the slides will be put together into a single file for each session.
