Guidelines for Oral Presentations

The 2014 DSP Organising Committee welcomes your contribution to the DSP 2014.

In order to ensure that your presentation runs smoothly, a number of services and facilities will be provided for you. Please take the time to read these guidelines ahead of time to ensure your presentation is successful.


  1. You will find the full details about presentations in the following DSP 2014 website.
    http://www.dsp2014.org/tp.htm

  2. Each lecture session is 105 minutes long. Please arrive at the room 15 minutes before your session begins and report to the session chairs.

  3. Each paper is allocated 18 minutes. We recommend that introduction of you and your paper by the session chairs takes about one minute. The presentation of your slides takes about 15 minutes and leaving around 2 minutes for questions.

  4. All lecture rooms will be equipped with a computer, a video projector, a microphone and a pointing device. Each computer will have a Windows 7 installed, a CD-ROM drive as well as Office 2007 and Acrobat Reader software.

  5. There will be a Speaker Ready Room in Room Y306. The room will have a computer and projector exactly like those found in the lecture presentation rooms.

  6. We are very concerned about the presentation quality and DSP has the tradition of good presentations from authors. To help authors prepare for lecture presentations with high quality, here are some tips:

    • To achieve appropriate quality and timing, organize your slides around the points you intend to make, using no more than one slide per minute. A reasonable strategy is to allocate about 2 minutes per slide when there are equations or important key points to make, and one minute per slide when the content is less complex. Slides attract and hold attention, and reinforce what you say - provided you keep them simple and easy to read.

    • Make sure each of your key points is easy to explain with aid of the material on your slides. Do not read directly from the slide during your presentation.

    • It is very important that you rehearse your presentation in front of an audience before you give your presentation at DSP 2014. Presenters must be sufficiently familiar with the material being presented to answer detailed questions from the audience.

** IMPORTANT NOTE **

Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend and present at the conference will be added to a "No-Show List". The "no-show" papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEE Xplore, EI Complendex or other public access forums, but these papers will be distributed as part of the on-site electronic proceedings and the copyright of these papers will belong to the IEEE.

Thank you for your help in making DSP 2014 a success.
