• One author must register for each paper to appear in the proceedings.
  • If none of the authors can attend (e.g., visa reasons) they must arrange for another registered WACV attendee to present on their behalf, for both the oral presentation and the poster session.
  • We don’t recommend presenting via recorded video or over Skype, but the oral presentation can be done this way.  An in-person WACV attendee must be present at the poster session.
  • If no arrangement is made to present the paper (i.e. a no-show), the paper will be withdrawn from the proceedings and will not be included in IEEExplore.
  • In keeping with WACV tradition, each paper will be presented as a short oral and a poster.

Oral Presentation

Authors will give a 5-minute oral presentation for each paper during the assigned oral session as published in the program. The time limit will be strictly enforced; the presenter should focus on clearly communicating the most salient aspects of the work and the main results.

Seats in the oral session room will be numbered in presenter order.  Please arrive to the room 10 minutes before the session starts (or the preceding “short break” ends), and sit in the seat with the number matched to your paper in the pocket guide.  Presentations will follow in the order given in the pocket guide. Use your own laptop for the presentation. While a presenter is giving their talk, the next presenter will test their laptop with assistance from a WACV volunteer. When a talk concludes, the display will transition immediately to the next presentation and a new talk will immediately commence (questions should be reserved for the poster session). Projector resolution is 1024×768.

The equipment will be available for testing your talk 30 minutes prior to the day’s first session.

Poster Instructions

Each paper must also be presented during the poster session at the end of the same day as the oral presentation. At least one author should be present at the poster during the entire session.

The mounting board for each poster 4 feet tall X 8 feet wide (1.2m x 2.4m) in  landscape orientation as shown in the picture. The printed posters must be smaller or equal to this size to be appropriately mounted. Each paper will be assigned one of the two sides of the board. Push pins will be provided.

Each poster is only displayed during the assigned poster session. Authors are responsible for mounting the poster before the session and removing it at the end of the session.

Poster boards will be numbered. Your poster number will be the number beside your title in the printed program and the online program.

Terry’s Tips for effective posters are listed in this example Powerpoint Poster Template. Note the template is 22″x45″ and should be printed at 200% magnification. (Powerpoint does not allow a size of 44″x90″).  If you provide the template to a printer, tell them the desired final size. 300 DPI resolution on the graphics is recommended.
