"A presentation is the process of presenting a topic to an audience. It is typically a demonstration, introduction, lecture, or speech meant to inform, persuade, inspire, motivate, or to build good will or to present a new idea or product." Oxford Dictionaries
- Show that you are an expert in your topic.
- Explain and highlight why your solution/topic is cool.
- Emphasise your contributions.
Rough outline of your presentation:
- 1/3 Context and Motivation
- First slide understandable by your grandparents.
- Second slide still understandable by your parents.
- Explain the problem. Let the audience crave after your solution.
- 1/3 Technical content
- Description of what you did.
- Why it is cool, complicated, novel, and/or unintuitive?
- 1/3 Analysis
- Why it is good?
- Why it is better than other approaches?
Most of the slides should be centered around a figure. Often, there is little need for text afterward. Remember,
- a presentation is only for support your talk, it is not your talk;
- use slide numbers to give a reference for others for questions; and
- use as many graphics as possible.
