Time Allocation for Invited Speaker (Oral Presentations)

Presentation time varies for each invited speaker. Please check your presentation schedule in the scientific program.

The last 5 minutes of your presentation time will be used for question and answer.

Session chair will show you the paper of a timer signal 3 minutes before the scheduled end time of your talk. After your talk ends, 5 minutes Q&A will start. Please cooperate to finish your lecture as scheduled on time along with this cue.

Audio Visual Equipment

All speakers are requested to use a laptop prepared by the organizer for presentation. Please bring your presentation data only by USB.

PowerPoint or PDF will be the only method of presentation available at the ISIT 2018. Please provide slides with sufficient font size and contrast to ensure your text can be seen clearly from the back of a session room.

Before Presentation

Invited oral speakers are requested to drop in at the speaker’s desk once before their presentation time to check whether the presentation slide works properly. The speaker’s desk is located at the face of the registration desk on a mezzanine level, Hotel New Otani Saga.

Staff at the desk keeps the slide file and puts the data in the laptop in the session room. If you want to replace the slide just before your talk, please drop the data directly to laptop and start the presentation.

Please be in the session room at least 10 minutes prior to your session so that you can make a short preparation with your session chair.

We will prepare a microphone and a laser pointer on the podium in the session room.

On Presentation

You can control the slide with a provided laptop on the podium. Laptops of both Windows and MAC will be prepared.
