Tips for Successful Paper Presentation
Successful presentation of your paper is important for your career. You had spent a lot of time for this research. Not only you, but also your co-researcher, guide and other people have invested their time. So the presentation is the way to let the world know about your work. Although your paper will be published in the journal latter, but this presentation before the panel members has a lot of weight for your research career.
You need a good preparation for this. Presenting a paper before the listeners and panel members is not that much easy as you write them for the journal publication. So you need a good practice of everything to stand and speak in front of the mass. The important thing is that you will be given a limited time for your presentation. So, you have to be time bound and finish all the things during the given period. So practicing the presentation keeping in mind about the limited availability of time is more important. It reduces your fear and gives you experience to adjust everything inside your budgeted time period.
We are going to mention about some points that will be helpful for your presentation task:
As discussed above, every presenter will be allowed for a limited amount of time and he/she has to finish his/her presentation within the allowable time. Prepare your slides accordingly and be sure that you will never run out of time.
Be sure to check your voice and pronunciation properly before attending an International conference. In an International Conference such as ICIRSTM 2017, people from various countries and having different spoken language join there. It may happen that most of the conference attendees are from countries, where English is not the first language. So you need to practice a lot to speak proper English very clearly. So that everyone can understand it well.
Addressing the Whole Hall:
Keep a good eye contact with the audience. Holding the paper up at nose level, is the good way to talk to the whole room.
Beginning the presentation with your thesis is a good thing and also helpful for the audiences. Ending the presentation like an open question is also a good idea. This attracts discussions and the presentation becomes an interactive session.
While preparing the presentation, make sure it will encourage questions from other attendees. Also make them feel that they can contribute to the session.
Although the above tips are not everything you need to be successful in conference presentation, but it will help a lot to make your presentation a better one.
