Speaker Deck / Presentation Slides

Slides can be submitted in any of the following digital format: PowerPoint, Keynote, Impress, PDF, or HTML5. The conference organizers will provide a projector with VGA input only. Speakers may incorporate optional demonstrations, tools, images, and motion pictures for their sessions. These should be well tested in advance to save time for both organizers and the audience. Please be reminded that it is the speaker’s responsibility to bring a computer for their presentations.

Total time allocation for each session is 50 minutes, of which 30-40 minutes time allocation for presentation, and additional 10-20 minutes for questions and answers.

Lightning Talks

There will be 5 to 6 lightning talk sections arranged for an hour period in each of the conference room in each conference day. The time limit is set at 8 minutes. The format is free talk, but speaker may choose to put up pre-submitted materials on the projector. The aim is to be short but effective knowledge sharing. Q & A sessions may follow after the talks are over if time permits.
