Presentation Instructions for the Main Conference (November 8-11, 2011)
- Timing: 18 minutes have been allocated to each oral presentation. This includes speaker setup, talk and question period. Please leave at least 3 minutes for questions.
- Projection: There will be a laptop projector only. Laptop projectors have a maximum resolution of 1024x768. There will be no VCR, and no overhead projectors.
- Important: Please be in the lecture hall at least 15 minutes before the start of your session. Introduce yourself to your session chair, get any last-minute instructions from him/her, and make sure your laptop works. In particular, all speakers must check before the session begins that the laptop & projector work together.
- Timing: Poster sessions start in the afternoon of each day, at 5:20pm. They "officially" end at 8pm, i.e. presenters are asked to stay at least until that time, although rooms are open until 9pm. Light food will be served starting around 7pm. Our intention is to have sufficient time and incentive for scientific exchange during this important part of the conference.
Posters can be up during the entire day.
- How to find your poster board: Boards are numbered and numbers can be found in the Posters List.
- Poster boards: The poster boards have a landscape setup. The default poster size is A0 (1.2m horizontal x 0.9m vertical). The stationery needed to attach a poster to the boards will be provided.
- Local Poster Printing Service: For the convenience of the ICCV2011 attendees, we have arranged a poster printing service to be delivered at the conference desk at a price of 80€ per poster if ordered/paid/uploaded before October 23, and 100€ if ordered up to November 3. This can save authors both money and the pain of traveling with the poster. Local Poster Printing service can be found at www.web340.com/iccv2011.
- Poster Spotlights
- Each poster paper is granted an oral spotlight presentation of 80 seconds. Spotlights for each day's poster session are presented throughout the day, as part of the regular oral sessions.
- Be present in the auditorium at least 15 min before your session starts. The session chair and/or an ICCV 2011 volunteer will give you further guidelines regarding seating and presentation.
- Each spotlight presentation should consist of exactly one slide. All slides will run automatically, so please give your microphone to the next presenter and leave the podium once your slide is flipped. You will not have access to the computer running the presentations and your slide should contain no "clickable" animations.
- A Microsoft Powerpoint presentation template is available here. All spotlight presentations should be submitted through the Author console of CMT by October 25, 2011. In the author console, please click on the 'Edit' link beneath the 'Presentation' header to go to the upload page.
- The filename of your submitted spotlight presentation should be of the form "X-YY.ppt", where "X" stands for the day of the poster session (day 1 to 4 of the conference) and "YY" for the poster number within the session, as per the Posters List. As an example, the filename for poster number 48 of the session on the second day of the main conference (Nov 9), should be "2-48.ppt".
- Online Video Presentations for Poster Papers
- Poster authors have the possibility to produce a 5 minute video presentation of their work (this is not mandatory!). This video should be uploaded
before until Nov 1st (23:59 PST, Pacific Standard Time), following the guidelines at www.iccv2011.org/authors/posters/videos
- Oral presentations (not the spotlights) will be taped at the conference, in as far as authors agree. The idea is to have those videos - for orals and posters - online after ICCV, as a lasting, lively presentation of the work. It is planned to also present the videos related to poster papers during the conference, in a loop on several screens. Hence, making a video also is a great possibility - together with the spotlight presentation - to attract more attention for your poster.
- Here are the guidelines for poster videos:
- We accept video files of maximally 5 minutes long. Everything beyond 5 minutes, will be cut automatically.
- We accept frame rates of maximally 30Hz. Higher rates will be automatically reduced to 30Hz by frame drop.
- We accept images sizes of maximally 720x576. Larger sizes will be subsampled automatically.
- We accept mono or stereo sound of samplerate maximally 44kHz. Otherwise, only the first two channels will be used and the sample rate reduced to 44kHz.
- We accept all video formats which play in an unmodified VLC (www.videolan.org/vlc/) version 1.1.11. Sequences needing other/additional video or audio codecs are discarded.
- We accept no files larger than 100MB.
- We will not 'improve' the video or 'audio', so no contrast corrections, edge enhancements, noise reductions, sound level corrections etc. will be performed.
- We refrain from specifying any guidelines with respect to content, except that you have to keep legal restrictions in mind (e.g. do not add music which you are not entitled to distribute). Obviously, just video-taping your poster would add little value. Up to you to make the best use of the video medium; have fun!
