The total time for each VR 2017 paper presentation is 22.5 minutes including time to switch speakers, give the talk, and answer questions.
You should plan for the talk itself to be approximately 17.5 minutes leaving a few minutes for questions and speaker switching. Running overtime would negatively affect speakers after you in the same session, so the session chair will interrupt you when the time for your talk is over. Hence, be sure to practice your talk extensively to guarantee that your material fits comfortably into the time allotted.
In order to ensure smooth transitions between talks, please meet with your session chair and test your presentation during a lunch or coffee break prior to your paper session.
All session rooms include a screen, high-resolution video/data projector, standing podium, podium microphone, and power cable. You have to use your own laptop for storing and projecting the slides for your talk. If you cannot use your own computer, please get in contact with us as soon as possible.
For the main VR conference and the 3DUI symposium, the projectors support a native resolution of 1920x1200. For weekend workshops, tutorials, and doctoral consortium sessions, the projectors support a native resolution of 1920x1080. HDMI and VGA connections will be provided at the podium. A limited number of adapters for other formats may be available, but we recommend bringing your own adapter if your device requires a different connection.
In order to take advantage of the widescreen projectors, you will need to create your slides using a widescreen aspect ratio. Please note that this is not mandatory, but if you choose to use a traditional 4:3 aspect ratio, then your slides will appear “pillar boxed.”
For your convenience we have prepared an optional presentation template.
As with any conference, access to the internet may be limited in capacity and bandwidth. Webpages, streaming videos, and other online content may not function properly during your presentation. We strongly recommend saving all online content locally so that your talk can run smoothly even if the internet connectivity is unreliable.
