2015 IEEE Aerospace Conference Author Presentation Policy and Guidelines

NOTE: If you are not the presenting author, please forward these guidelines to the appropriate person.

 

IEEE Aerospace Conference Presentation Policy

The IEEE Aerospace Conference is a venue for engineers and scientists to present and discuss their work with each other.  Only papers presented at the conference in person or by Electronic Presentation Hall (EPH) will be submitted for publication by the IEEE.  If you can't comply, please do not submit at all. 

A registrant may personally present up to three papers, whether his own or the papers of others. If the registrant is an author of all three papers, the registrant’s single registration fee suffices.  Upon payment of a 1-day registration fee, an author who is unable to attend the conference may arrange for a registrant who is familiar with their work to present their paper, or, upon payment of the EPH fee, present a paper via the EPH option. Sole exceptions to the one-day fee are papers presented by co-authors and one (1) paper presented by an attendee who is presenting no other papers.

Preparing for Your Presentation

  • You will have 18 minutes for your talk, followed by 5 minutes for Q&A. Please design your charts to fit the time frame and practice to make sure you will not run out of time.
  • Most authors find that 10-12 charts is about right, as long as the charts are not overly complex or crowded. A structure that works for most talks is: Problem Introduction, Your Solution, Advantages and Disadvantages, Suggested Applications, Recommendations, Summary.
  • You can find the exact time and room for your presentation by logging in and viewing the Conference Schedule under the "resources" dropdown. Use the browser search to find your name or paper number. Check frequently for late changes in exact time, but be assured you will not be moved from the stated day without us checking directly with you. The schedule will be on the home page once it is finalized.
  • If you have special points you would like your Session Organizer to include in your introduction, please send them beforehand. You can find SO email addresses on the Call for Papers Technical Program on the conference website.

What to Bring to Big Sky

  • Your presentation on your own laptop computer and on a memory stick. iPads and smart phones may not display high resolution, and we don't have adapters for them. Please use a regular laptop. All laptops should be set to a screen resolution of 1024 x768 and with slides in a 16:9 ratio.
  • If your Session Organizer has asked for a copy of your presentation to place on his/her laptop and confirmed successful receipt, you might travel light. However, as backup, please at least do bring a copy of your presentation on your own memory stick.
  • Casual clothing. Dress is informal at all conference events, even for presenters.

At Big Sky

  • Meet your session organizer ahead of the session so that he/she knows you and that you are there. Make sure he/she has enough information to properly introduce you.
  • Practice rooms will be available. Check the printed schedule for room number and time.

Giving Your Talk

  • Please arrive well before your scheduled presentation time.
  • Each meeting room is equipped with an LCD projector and cable (But cables walk away, so be safe and bring your own.). Also MAC users will need a DVI male to VGA female adapter.
  • Please boot your laptop before your start time.
  • Since there are no amplification systems in individual meeting rooms, you must speak loudly enough to be heard in the back of the room. This is especially critical for the larger rooms--Jefferson, Madison, and Gallatin. Feel free to invite attendees to move to the front of the room.
  • Also, remember to use a pointer, define all acronyms on first use, and take care not to block the screen.
  • Enjoy giving your talk, answering questions, and meeting colleagues in your field!
  • Electronic Presentation Hall (EPH)

    Prepare and submit your paper in the normal way.  When you register for the conference, select the EPH option, and prepare your presentation per EPH Instructions Contact Debbi Minnichelli, the EPH Chair, for questions.

    Here is a Template for preparing EPH presentations.  Voice annotation is required for all EPH presentations.
