Venue: Lecture Room, 3rd Floor, Building 5#, State Key Laboratory of Computer Science, Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Abstract: The talk aims at showing you an example of a good presentation at international conferences.  It must be interesting, humourous, and enjoyable, and yet it should convey serious technical details. We will advise you about everything you ever wanted to know about presentation techniques but were afraid to ask.  For example: What should you really do when attending international conferences? Why and how do you give the audience a good first impression? What is the “tell them * 3″ approach in presentations?  What is the difference between slide-oriented and speaker-oriented presentations? Do you really know how to prepare PowerPoint slides?
