Full papers

  • Each full paper, including Best Paper Candidates in the Best Paper Session, and brave new topic papers, will be presented in an oral session.
  • Each presentation will be allotted 22,5 minutes (17,5 minutes for the presentation +5 minutes for Q&A).

Oral presentations

  • All oral session rooms are equipped with data projectors with a standard VGA connector. We encourage speakers to bring and use their own laptops or other presentation devices. Check the compatibility of your laptop and the projector before the session starts. If you plan to use your own MAC or laptop with a non-VGA connection bring a VGA adapter to connect to the projector.
  • We will have powerpoint laser pointers/slide changers available, but if you have your own please bring it along.
  • The presentation format of the data projectors is 16:9 so create your presentation with this format in mind.
  • In the break before your presentation, go to the scheduled room to meet the Session Chair and the Room Volunteer who will help you set up for your presentation.
  • Time will be strictly enforced by session chairs and all the presenters are expected to make sure that their presentations fit strictly within the time limit and that the switching to another presentation is done during the Q&A.
  • If special equipment is required, please contact the Local Organization Chairs (local.organisation@acmmm.org) in advance.
  • Free wireless internet is available, but make sure that presentations would also work if the connection is limited or not available.

Open Source Software Competitions

  • The open source software solutions will be presented in one oral session. Each OSSC presentation is allocated 5 minutes (4 minutes for the presentation, and 1 minute for Q&A).
  • As part of your presentation, please make sure to show your OSSC work in action. This can be done with a live demo, but given the limited time a video, or other powerful ways of conveying its value to the MM community might be more suited.
  • One OSSC award will be given to the winner and announced in the award ceremony session.

Multimedia Grand Challenge Solutions
