Understand that it takes some people more time to digest information. Make it accessible. You must realize that not everyone in the audience is an expert in your subfield.
Proceedings of the
Thank them by making at least the beginning of your talk accessible to them; even if only the first few slides are accessible to a general audience, and even if your talk becomes rapidly more technical as you progress. Label your graphs! Cite any results, even your own. Often talk slides are available to the public.
Presentations - Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert CURIEN (IPHC)
Figures and results should have citations, so that people can attribute them properly when they become interested in your work. This is different from just including references which you also must do!
Most talk pdfs are now saved on conference servers so that attendees can access them in the future. Indicate what should and should not be taken on faith. You can only fit so much into your talk. Conversely, emphasize a logical progression if it is critical to your argument. Synchronize the visial and aural.
You must synchronize the visual and aural information you present.
Otherwise your audience will stop listening to you and start reading your slides. We, the audience, are easily distracted. No essays! On that note, your slides are not a substitute for a paper. And you should almost never have full paragraphs on your slides. Remember: the slides are there to emphasize and compliment the things that you say, not to replace your voice. This is the difference between slides and conference proceedings.
Be a tease. Sometimes you absolutely must have everything on one slide. Examples include the outline of a complicated proof, a big circuit diagram, or any other presenation of how many ideas connect. Put up pieces of the slide one at a time as you talk about them and gradually reveal the entire picture. This way the audiences focuses on each piece as you describe it. Timing is important. Plan out when you say things relative to when you turn to the next slide. Make it look nice.
Try to keep a unified theme e. Arrows and diagrams. Break free of the mold that every slide is a series of bullet points.

Include arrows and diagrams that emphasize logical flow or structure. Beamer users may want to consider usng beamer arrows. Answer questions. Be sure to leave time for questions, and be ready for questions during your talk. Learn how good scientists respond to tough questions. Learn how to think on your feet to address if not answer these questions.
Be playful. This goes along with being enthusiastic about your work. You can take your work seriously without taking yourself seriously. But see note above regarding timing. Be sure to keep it tasteful and professional, though. And always acknowledge your collaborators. Seminar Bingo.
If you get stuck in a bad seminar, you might want to have a couple of these handy in your notebook: PhD Comics seminar bingo , physics seminar bingo. Good posting, Flip. Cliff Burgess gave a talk in Cambridge today — he used a total of slides…. I gave a talk on the IceCube experiment talk is post here , NB: large file and somewhat technical , including some recent results on the gamma-ray bursts and also a few of the first bright PeV events seen by the telescope.
I did manage to find some time to go snorkeling during the meeting. There were a lot of fish and sea creatures in the protected reef waters of the lagoon, and in fact Moorea featured in a recent National Geographic magazine article exploring the living content of a cubic foot of the coral reef. So, in a manner that a physicist would approve of, Moorea can be used as a simple model of an ecosystem for systematic study.
Some arrived with the Polynesian voyageurs, others with colonial masters, and others as accidental tourists in the jet age. The Biocode project at Gump tries to do just this.
Identify all of the species. Since I last took a biology class of course this is not just a process of identifying the species by its characteristics Wikipedia background on taxonomy but also via the DNA characterization of the species. I must put a call out here to the brilliant DNA analysis work on restaurant sushi. For example, you can identify all of the critters you can in Moorea, down to about a couple of mm in length , record their DNA, and then take the contents of a fish stomach and sequence that DNA. In the stomach you find the DNA of species that you had not previously identified.
In fact, it seems that many, or most, species do not have a catalog entry, a sample pinned onto a board in the basement of the natural history museum, they just have some DNA in the instrumentation in the laboratory. These are the dark taxa, genetic information without the classical context of the detailed, properly named , taxonomy entry. The name is nicely analogous to the Dark Matter. The Dark Taxa was introduced by Roderic Page who was considering the entries in species catalogs and noting the explosion in the number of species identified only genetically, with no classical taxonomy.
The already plenty-amazing world is that much richer still. The Biocode effort on Moorea was making use of large scale databases, sequencing everything biological that the researchers could find on the island, and working through the classifications via software.

Okay, so I went to a tropical paradise, talked physics, and got pretty excited about biology, in particular biological classification. It was a good trip. There were a lot of interesting people there, mostly much more expert than me on the subject of vertex detectors.
Book Us Lhc Symposium Presentation Slides
In general, a vertex detector is a high-precision tracker designed to measure exactly where tracks come from; a pixel detector is one type of vertex detector. My talk was about the current operations of the CMS pixel detector; you can see me giving the talk at right, and the very technical slides are here.
Other talks were about future development in on-detector chip and sensor technology; this work is likely to affect the next detectors we build, and the upgrades of our current detectors as well. The location of the conference — Jeju, Korea — was also very nice, and we got an afternoon off to see some of the island. The whole island is volcanic.
