SPEAKER’S INSTRUCTIONS

Good visual aids can greatly enhance the effect your presentation has on the audience. Experience at past conferences has shown that many of the oral presentations have not been adequately prepared. Often an attempt was made to present too much material and too much detail. Visual aids, the primary means to hold the attention of the audience, were often poorly conceived and inadequately prepared. It is our hope that these guidelines will help you prepare a better visual presentation. Sessions will be by 3/5 minutes for introductions and then 10/15 minutes per paper, of which 5 minutes should be reserved for audience questions and comments.
