1. Slide Guidelines
For your 15-30-minute presentation, please use the CSTIC 2024 PPT TEMPLATE. The template file contains suitable colors and fonts, as well as examples of good and bad techniques. Even if you do not plan to use PowerPoint, carefully review the information in the PowerPoint template. In particular, note the following:
• Refer to the CSTIC 2024 PPT TEMPLATE as a guide for formats and presentation recommendations.
• Page set-up: CSTIC uses a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio for all presentations.
• Leave 1cm margin on all four sides.
• All pages should be in a horizontal format, not vertical.
• No logos are permitted except on the title page.
• High contrast is important. Use black or dark-colored fonts on a white background.
• For pages with text only, use no more than 30 words and no more than 6 lines, per slide.
• For illustrations, make all lines, numbers, and captions of sufficient thickness and size so that they are projected clearly. Again, use Calibri or a similar sans serif font and do not use font sizes smaller than 24 point.
• Often graphical data imported from another application have inadequate line width and font size to be useful. If necessary, re-draw the material using thicker lines and larger fonts or directly in native PowerPoint graphics.
• Use duplicate copies of a page if you need to refer to it at different times in your presentation. Do not rely on moving back to previously shown pages.
• Save your presentation using a file name with the following naming convention for your 15-30-min video presentation: Paper ID_Speaker Name
Example: 2-2_David Liu.ppt
• Embed true-type fonts in PowerPoint files:
To embed fonts, click on "File", "Save As", "Tools", "Save options", "Embed fonts in the file" or, click on "File", "Save As" and check "Embed True Type"
2. Suggestions for a Good Presentation and Instructions for Creating an MP4 of your presentation
• Briefly outline your talk and what will be covered.
• Define your problem. What led to your work? What were your objectives?
• Use your presentation to visualize the essential points of your talk. Be selective.
• Keep concepts as simple as possible and limit each page to one main idea.
• Use several simple figures rather than one complicated one, especially if you plan to discuss it at length.
• Make a clear conclusion. Suggest potential applications.
• Rehearse your talk aloud with a private audience prior to recording it.

Please note the following:
For video presentation, you can choose to show your face through the webcam and display your slides as you talk. Be sure you get a good quality recording, and your final file is in the MP4 format.

Poster Due: February 20, 2025

How To Write A Quality Abstract?
Abstracts must demonstrate results-oriented research, and data is therefore crucial.
Abstract submitters should ensure that their abstracts provide sufficient detail so that reviewers will be able to fully evaluate the author's work, research design, data, analysis, and results.
The abstract will be reviewed according to the following criteria.

1. A brief (50-80 words) synopsis of your paper. Its use is to provide a quick outline of your presentation, giving the reader an overview of the research. Keywords, 5-10 in number should be so chosen that they best describe the contents of the paper.
2. Research-focused abstracts must delineate the statistical data with pictures/photographs and tables. Do not use photocopies.
** This is the most important section of the abstract. In order to be accepted for presentation, the abstract must include data that supports the abstract's conclusions.
3. Good format, eg. Full-Size Format, Font Size, etc.

If accepted for poster presentation, what are the next steps?
The author will be notified by an acceptance email that their abstract has been reviewed and accepted for poster presentation.
Accepted presenters must adhere to conference deadlines and guidelines. Authors of accepted poster papers are required to present their poster papers onsite in Shanghai. Five CSTIC Best Poster Awards will be given.
We recommend that authors use the CSTIC 2024 POSTER SAMPLE. Dimensions of the poster frame area is 60cm (width) x 90cm (height).
Please kindly refer to these full papers and onsite posters of SEMI Best Poster Award winners in CSTIC 2023.
