The text covers the important aspects of scientific presentations, including knowing your audience, producing visual material, controlling nerves and handling questions using a practical 'how-to' style.
How does the conference system work? How do I prepare an abstract/outline/synopsis? How do I choose my material and prepare it for a conference presentation? How can I prepare effective conference aids? How can I overcome my nerves? How can I prepare and present effective posters for poster presentations?
When scientists give a talk, the audience expects the title of the talk to determine presentation content, they require understandable slides, and they demand visible and audible scientific authority. To each expectation corresponds a set of skills: personal (voice, host qualities, time control), technical (presentation tools and slide design), and scientific (Q & A, slide content). The author takes an original human factor view of the presentation delivery.
