The presentation should satisfy the following guidelines:
Here is Simon Peyton Jones' site with more information on
how to give a good research talk.
- Your talk should be 15-20 minutes long and therefore only
include 7-10 slides.
- The presentation should cover the same questions that are
expected in paper reviews. In other words the presentation
is NOT a summarization of the paper, but instead a review
of the paper. Focusing on one aspect of the paper and elaborating
that aspect with an example is a good approach.
- Tell us what you are going to tell us and why we should care,
tell us, and then conclude by summarizing the main points.
- Plan a definite purpose for each slide.
- Do not put too much information on each slide and use big fonts.
- Make eye contact with your audience.
- Do not read your slides.
- Speak clearly, project, and practice aloud in advance.
