Presentation Guidelines

The following guidelines should help you prepare for your presentation at IVCNZ 2013. Regardless of whether you have an oral or poster presentaion, conference attendees will have access to electronic versions of your paper, so you do not need to include all of the technical details in your presentation.

Important Note: All accepted papers will be published on the conference proceedings in full (6 pages) if they submit their final camera-ready version and pay the registration fees by the deadline, and the papers will also be indexed by IEEE Explore (usually also Engineering Index/Compendex, DBLP, and/or ISTP, ) if the paper is presented at the conference (either poster or oral). IEEE does NOT distinguish oral and poster presentations. Both oral and poster presentations are given 6 pages in the proceedings.

Oral Presentations

Papers that have been accepted as oral presentations will be allocated 15 minutes to present the paper, followed by 5 minutes of question time. In order to run a successful single-track conference, and to encourage time for questions and discussion, these time limits will be enforced quite strictly.

Computer and projection facilities will be provided, running Windows with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and Adobe Acrobat Reader available. You will also be able to use your own laptop.

Poster Presentations

Space will be available for posters up to portrait A1 size (841mm high by 594mm wide). Posters should be an eye-catching display of your paper's methodology and key results, and not just a copy of your paper.

You will also be asked to give a 1 minute introduction orally to your paper. You will have a single, static slide to talk to. The purpose of these introductions is to invite people to come and visit your poster, not to explain any technical detail.

Slides for the poster presentation should be sent to with the subject line "Poster Slide Paper ID #".

  • A single PDF page is preferred, in a 4x3 aspect ratio, although we will do our best to convert other formats.
  • If we do not receive a slide by Friday 22nd November, we will produce one for you.
  • Please do not provide multiple slides or animated material - your slide will be made part of a larger presentation which will be run by the session chair.


Proceedings (softcopy) will be available at the conference. After the conference, we will work with IEEE so that all presented papers (either oral or poster presentations) will included and indexed by IEEE Explore and possibly also Engineering Index (Compendex), ISTP and DBLP.
