Guidelines for Workshop Presentations

We have created a presentation template which we suggest, but do not require you to adopt, available here (PPT).  Both presenters and discussants should email their slides to by midnight Tuesday, October 6th. We have contracted for VCube recording and slide presentation of the conference and MUST  have all presentations by the October 6th deadline for you to use slides in your presentation.

Regular Sessions

A regular session lasts 75 minutes. Each presenter will have 15 minutes for their presentation, followed by 5 minutes of discussion/comments by the assigned paper discussant. At the end of each session, there will be 15 minutes of Q&A open to all participants. Audience members will hold their questions to the end of the session.

WHITE discussants are encouraged to coordinate with the presenting authors to discuss the paper before the workshop, and may arrange to receive advance copies of the presentation.

Please name the presentation file “WHITE2015-XY-slides” where X is the number of the session and Y is the number of your paper as found in the workshop program: For example, session 1, 2nd presentation, the file should be WHITE 2015-12-slides.

Cluster (Short) Presentations

There is a dedicated cluster presentation session. Each presenter will get 5 minutes and up to 6 slides (1 title slide and up to 5 content slides). It is important that presenters plan their remarks carefully, as we will adhere strictly to the timing guidelines.

Please name the presentation file “WHITE2015-CY-slides” where Y is the number of your paper as found in the workshop program: if your cluster presentation is 4th, the file should be WHITE 2015-C4-slides.
