Tips for Presenting a Paper


Clearly state:

After the intro, people must have the paper’s main message firmly in their minds.


Don’t put too much on a slide. The Pat Kehoe test is useful: drop the slide on the floor; can you still read everything?

Every slides must have a point. It must state its point clearly.

You should have no more than 30 slides for a 90 minute presentation, unless there is very little on each slide.
