Guidelines on Poster Presentations

1. Poster presentation should highlight the research methods and outcomes. Posters are primarily for visual presentations, thus minimal amount of text should support or supplement the graphical materials. Self-explanatory graphics should dominate the poster.

2. The poster should use photos, figures and tables to tell the story of the study. The presenter should be able to present the information in the poster in a logical sequence that is easy to follow. The following should guide the presenter in preparing the poster:
a. Poster size should be 3 feet by 4 feet in dimensions.
b. Place the elements of the abstract in this position:

c. Use schematic diagrams, arrows and other visual representations to direct the attention of the viewer rather than explaining it all using text alone;
d. Use number to sequence the sections of the poster;
e. Arrange the materials/information into columns and use font size of about 36-42 for section headings and 24-28 for body text. Title of the abstract should be readable 15-20 feet away
f. Use short sentences, simple words and bullets to highlight significant points;
g. Use 2-3 colors for emphasis. The background of the poster should be white or grey for easier contrast in terms of graphic and photographic elements
h. Graphic materials and text should be read easily or visible from a minimum of 6 feet away
i. The poster should be 20-25% text, 40-45% graphics and 30-40% empty space

3. Design the poster to address one key research question. State the question clearly in the poster and then use your discussion with individuals to expand or expound issues surrounding the key research question.

4. The poster should rely upon the presenters’ verbal explanation to link together the various portions. The presenter should then be in attendance answering questions posed by passing participants.

5. The poster should be able to provide an explicit take-home message.

Information on Abstract and full paper Submission

1. By submitting an abstract the presenter/s agree to allow publication of submitted abstract, full papers and related information on the presenter in the Seminar website, proceedings and other related publications.

2. Further information will be provided to the presenters whose abstracts are accepted for oral or poster presentation. For abstracts with multiple authors, at least one author must attend the Seminar to present the abstract.

3. All accepted abstracts will be published in the ICSE 2015 Proceedings. Should an individual submit their final paper but fail to register by the deadline, that person's paper will be removed from the conference program and proceedings.

Oral Presentation Guidelines

1. Each oral presentation is allocated 20 minutes time slot (including 3 minutes for Q&A). There will be a timer on podium as a reminder of where you are in the presentation. Please be advised that presentations exceeding the limit will be cut off by the moderators in the interest of time.

2. Plenary speakers are allocated up to 30 minutes time slot (including 5 – 10 minutes for Q&A). Since the conference schedule is tight, Session chairs will need to strictly enforce these timings.

3. You are required to bring your presentation in PowerPoint format to the conference on a USB stick. We strongly advise that to deal with unforeseen circumstances you bring an extra copy of all presentation files. Any necessary video or audio files not included in your folder along with your PowerPoint file, will cause your presentation to fail in the presentation room. Computers will be provided to upload presentations and test them in the presentation rooms. Each presentation room will be staffed with a technician who will assist with any technical issues.

4. You should meet your session chair in the presentation room 10 minutes before the beginning of your session. You are required to be in attendance for the whole session and take your seat in the front row of the session room. You are responsible for advancing your slides during your presentation.

5. Each presentation room will be set up with the following audio visual equipment:
