Notes for Paper Presenters

1) Equipment:

The paper and panel presentation rooms will have the following equipment available for your use:

A) two overhead projectors
B) a PC (at least a Pentium III) with projection unit, running WinNT4.0 and Linux with the latest versions of Microsoft Office and Corel Office
C) a video projection unit

2) Schedule:

Paper sessions are 80 minutes long. There are four papers per session. Therefore, each paper will be presented in a 20 minute slot. We suggest you use 15 minutes for your presentation, 4 minutes for interaction with the audience, and the remaining minute as a "buffer", a time used to allow attendees to switch rooms and allow the two parallel paper sessions to stay in synch with each other.

Please meet with your session's chair 15 minutes before the session, in the session room, to discuss timing preferences, the pronunciation of names, and any other coordination plans that are needed.

3) Communication:

Please remember that this is an international conference. Be sure to define your terms, since many of the words we use such as lab, class, course, exam, and so on, mean different things to different audiences. It might also be appropriate for you to "set the stage" briefly for your presentation by describing the educational model you use at your institution.

Notes for Posters

Posters will presented at a session where the presenter stands next to his or her poster and discusses it with the other participants walking around. The poster sessions are popular, and give new ideas both to the presenters and to other participants.

Since there will be many participants who want to understand your work, please try and make it easy for them. Use big fonts, and clear pictures. Make sure that your main ideas are understandable and interesting even for a particapant standing at some distance, up to two meters.

Ordinary font sizes, with text covering several A4-size pages are not suitable for a poster presentation, since people have to stand very close to the board to read the text (which blocks access for others) and they have to stand there for a long time to read to the end.

You will have a board for your poster presentaion of 115cm (high) x 95 cm (wide). Therefore, we suggest the following letter size:

Heading/Title : 3 cm in height (86 pt)
Name(s) and Affiliation(s) of authors : 2 cm in height (56 pt)
Body Text : 1 cm in height (28 pt)

Please remember that this is an international conference. Be sure to define your terms, since many of the words we use such as lab, class, course, exam, and so on, mean different things to different audiences.

Of course, there will be some people who are very interested in your work, and will want more detail than can be covered in a poster. We suggest that you bring up to 50 copies of your paper (or more extended treatment of the subject) to hand out to interested delegates.

Notes for Demonstrations

In addition to the invited talks, the papers, the panels, and the posters, ITiCSE 2000 will host a demonstration track. This track will be relatively informal. Any conference attendee will be able to sign up on-site to give a demonstration. The resulting demonstration schedule will be placed in a highly visible location, so that everyone will be aware of the tools and systems that are being demonstrated.

We think that demonstrations could be especially important to support papers dealing with unique tools and systems. If there isn't enough time during the paper presentation to get across the theory and results of your work, and also demonstrate your tools or systems, then consider supplementing your paper presentation with a separate demonstration. The ideal approach is to sign up early for a demonstration slot that occurs after your presentation - so that you can announce your demonstration time and place to your paper session audience.

The demonstration lab will include the same equipment as the paper and panel rooms, described above.
