Paper Presentation     Latest Publications

Instructions for Oral Presentations:

Each oral presentation is allocated 20 minutes (15 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of questions). We will be strictly adhering to the 20 minute schedule and your session chairs will notify you when your time is about complete. Presentations will start at their scheduled times in order for conference attendees to attend those talks they wish to hear. The conference will be providing LCD projectors and machines for presenters. You are also welcome to bring your own laptop. In case you decide to use the conference machine for presentation, please bring a copy of your slides on a USB key or CD. Our machines are Windows-based machines and will be able to run MS PowerPoint, MS Word, and Adobe Reader compatible presentations.


Instructions for Poster Presentations:

Each poster presentation on Monday and Tuesday will be allocated approximately 42"x42" space to put up their posters. The conference will be supplying cork boards and pushpin tacks for presenters to mount their presentations. Each board is roughly 45"x91" and will be shared by two presenters. We have allocated time in the schedule for poster presenters to setup their presentations before the scheduled Monday and Tuesday sessions. We ask that Monday presenters to take down their posters Monday evening since the Tuesday presenters will be using the same boards.

Paper Formatting Style--Create or check your PDF by IEEE eXpress

SMC2007 has registered for use of a new IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress™

The new IEEE Xplore® Requirements for PDF will be enforced as of 2005. All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).
