Paper Presentation :
As a registered participant, you may like to submit a paper for presentation. A conference paper is often both a written document and an oral presentation. The paper should be precise and relevant to the topic. A 4 to 5 page double spaced paper is often a good fit for a 10 minute presentation. Time limit will be prescribed by the chair person and has to be strictly adhered. Power point presentation could help to reduce time. Keep the text as brief as possible; not more than 10 lines of text (or points) per slide. All letters on the slide should be big enough to make it readable even at the back of the auditorium.
A poster presentation is the presentation of information in the form of a paper poster that participants may view. A poster session will have many such posters getting presented. Important information should be readable from about 2 meters away. Title must be short and catchy. Text should be clear and to the point. Use of bullets, numbering and headlines make it easy to read. Employ effective use of graphics, colour and fonts.How to get approval:
