IPSN '03 Presenter Guidelines
Oral presentations will be 25 minutes in length: A maximum of 20 minutes for
the talk and 5 minutes for questions. Speakers will be cut off at the 20-minute
An LCD projector will be set up to handle VGA signals. An
overhead projector will also be available.
We are attempting to pack a large number of talks into each
day, so presenters must be present at the start of the break preceding their
session so that they can be miked and their computers can be hooked up to a
POSTER SESSION INFORMATION
40" x 60" posterboards will be provided at registration.
Posters will hang from the ceiling with the 60" side
parallel to the ground (i.e. landscape mode). A table placed underneath the
posterboard may be used to hold node or sensor devices or laptops to show demonstrations.
Two posterboard formats are recommended:
1. For presenters with large-format printers, a single sheet
can be printed which is larger than the 40"x60" posterboard. The edges
are then folded over the posterboard and secured using binder spring clips.
2. A series of individual pages can be tacked onto the posterboard
using stick adhesive. A 40"x60" posterboard has room for about 20
8.5"x11" pages. Arrows on the charts to indicate the direction of
flow of the posters may be helpful.
Posters must be pre-printed and brought to PARC; no printers
will be available to presenters.
Posters must be readable from at least a 5' distance.
POSTER SESSION SCHEDULE
A single posterboard will be allocated to each poster presenter,
and will be available at the Welcome Reception/Registration on April 21st or
at Registration in the PARC Auditorium Foyer starting at 7 am on Tuesday, 22
April. If you prefer to purchase your own foamcore posterboard, the posterboards
are available at Office Depot. Please make sure it is no larger than 40"
Poster presenters are strongly encouraged to pick up their
posterboard from registration on Monday evening at the Crowne Plaza Cabana.
Glue sticks will be available, along with some binder clips, but poster presenters
are advised that it may be more convenient to bring their own.
All posterboards with posters mounted MUST be turned
in to the IPSN Workshop Registration Desk (located in the foyer of
the PARC Auditorium) by 10:45 am on Tuesday, 22 April. The
posterboards will be hung in the foyer for you. The poster session will begin
at 12:50 pm. Poster presenters should plan to have one person standing by their
poster at all times.
SPECIAL A/V AND OTHER REQUIREMENTS (POSTERS OR TALKS)
Any presenter requiring electrical power or with other special A/V requests
for the poster session or the oral talks must request this a minimum of 2 weeks
in advance. Please send requests to our meeting coordinator, Jesse Durham, at
