2 Metapresentation  Step-by-step presentation creation  Of this presentation  In the first part Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 2

3 Presentation Outline  Presentation outline  Visual aspects  Content  Paper presentations Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 3

4 Font  Adequate font size (roughly 28-32)  Too small: difficult to read, distracting  Sans-serif fonts  Serifs help in block text  Distract in short text  “Modest” fonts  Extravagancies illegible or unreadable  Consistency Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 4

9 Colours and Background  Non-distracting background  Keep text legible  Appropriate text colour  Contrast  Eye accommodation  Very strong focal point  Use sparingly  Keep palette limited Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 9

10 Colours and Background  Non-distracting background  Keep text legible  Appropriate text colour  Contrast  Eye accommodation  Very strong focal point  Use sparingly  Keep palette limited Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 10

11 Colours and Background  Non-distracting background  Keep text legible  Appropriate text colour  Contrast  Eye accommodation  Very strong focal point  Use sparingly  Keep palette limited Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 11

13 Colours and Background  Non-distracting background  Keep text legible  Appropriate text colour  Contrast  Eye accommodation  Very strong focal point  Use sparingly  Keep palette limited Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 13

14 Animation  Animation types  Slide transition  Intra-slide animation Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 14

15 Slide Transition  All slides  Matter of taste  Consistency  Subtle effects better  Some slides  Logical splitter  Outline points  Examples Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 15

16 Intra-slide Animation SStrong focus attractor SStriking point DDon’t waste it HHinders offline use SSlide browsing PPrinting PPDF export Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 16

17 Creating Presentations  Slide title helps focus  Narrows down topic  Prevents repetition  Title change ~ logical division  Title capitalization (per CMS): A First and last word A Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, subord. conj. a Articles, coord. conj., prepositions a Infinitive “to” Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 17

18 Slide Titles  Helps focus  Narrows down topic  Prevents repetition  Title change ~ logical division  Capitalization (per CMS): A First and last word A Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, subord. conj. a Articles, coord. conj., prepositions a Infinitive “to” Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 18

19 Slide Titles (cont.)  Multi-slide topic  Same line of thought: use e.g. “(cont.)”  Different aspects: use separate titles  Keep it short  Headline, not information  Can correspond to outline  Not necessary Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 19

20 Presentation Outline  Presentation outline  Visual aspects  Content  Paper presentations Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 20

21 Text Coverage  Keep it brief  Try to keep your points brief and as points, i.e. do not use overlong phrases and always think twice about including a full sentence if a verbless statement will do; otherwise, the donkey points of your message might become obscured by a wall of text no-one will read.  Reading distracts from listening  Where’s the donkey? ;-) Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 21

22 Text Structure  Indented lists are good  Topic, subtopic  Place for notes  Class, examples  Timeline  Keep it vertical Otherwise, it becomes silly Like this  Self-contained slides  Don’t break lower-level lists Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 22

23 Text Structure (cont.)  Difficult to follow otherwise Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 23

24 Images  Motivation  Introductory slides, overview slides  No direct link to text  Shouldn’t affect text  In-text illustration  Diagrams ~ vector graphics Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 24

25 Slide – Talk Interaction  Follow slide structure  Don’t jump back and forth  List important points  Leave details to the talk  Don’t read the slide  The talk is primary  Talk slowly and clearly  Never save time by talking faster Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 25

26 Presentation Outline  Presentation outline  Visual aspects  Content  Paper presentations Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 26

27 Paper Presentation  minutes  Including discussion  Goals  Present novel ideas  Get them to read the paper  Provide basic understanding  Details are in the paper Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 27

28 Structure 1.Outline 2.Introduction to problem 3.Related work 4.Your contribution 5.Results 6.Summary 7.Future work 8.Discussion Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 28

29 Preface  Introduction to problem  Depth ~ venue  General: semi-informed audience  Your field, not your topic  Related work  Most important similar & different approaches  No method details necessary  Usually 1-2 slides Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 29

30 Your Contribution  Underline conceptual ideas  Underline your improvements  Avoid details  Refer to the paper  Formulae  Only if vital  Explain or cull Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 30

31 Conclusion  Results  Show a video, if possible  Mind codecs, mind multi-monitors  Test in advance  Show live demo, if possible  Summary  Re-state the problem  List your delta  Future work (optional) Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 31

32 Summary  Think of the audience  Legibility, readability  Ease of future reference  Speak clearly  Paper presentation  Ideas, not details  For semi-specialists  Stress your contribution Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 32

33 Thank You Let’s talk! Petr Kmoch, Computer Graphics Group, MFF UK 33
