Notes for Presentations and Posters

Each standard presentation will be 20 minutes in length, including setup and questions.

Each poster group will have the opportunity to give a 90 second (including setup time) overview presentation.

Presentations

  • Powerpoint Presentation Template - If you would like, you can use this template for your presentation, but it not required that you use it.
  • If you are giving a 20 minute presentation, please note the following:

    To decrease set up time, it would help if all of the presentations were on our presentation laptops.

    We would like to make all the presentations available on the Ptolemy website as PDF files. Let us know if this would be a problem.

    If possible, please email your Powerpoint presentation to ptconf17 at ptolemy eecs berkeley edu by 6am Friday, October 9.

    Of course, you are welcome to use your own laptop, though there will be the usual minor delay in switching between laptops.

    Posters


    Please email your poster to ptconf17 at ptolemy eecs berkeley edu by so that we can put it up on the website 6am Monday, October 9.

    Please bring your poster with you on Friday, October 13.

    You are responsible for printing off your poster and attaching it to the posterboard. We will have clips, posterboard and easels for your use.

    If you are preparing a poster, please note that there will be an opportunity to present a 90 second overview of your poster. You need not prepare slides, though having two or three slides is encouraged.

    We encourage you to give have a live demonstration at your poster. Those giving demonstrations must note this on your registration form or notify us in advance by emailing ptconf17 at ptolemy eecs berkeley edu so that we can provide power and a monitor.

    If you prepare overview slides, we strongly encourage you to email them to ptconf17 at ptolemy eecs berkeley edu by 6am Monday, October 9 so that we can easily switch between overviews in a timely fashion.

    We would like to make all the posters themselves available on the Ptolemy website as PDF files. Let us know if this would be a problem. We will not be making the overview slides available.
