  3. 3. What's the best contents? ● The goal of a talk is similar to the goal of a technical paper. ● So, when we give a talk, we should ask your- self, “What are the key points that my audi- ence should take away from the talk?” ● We should need to elide everything that does not support those points.
  4. 4. How best to write plain slide(1) ● We should use descriptive slide titles. ● Do not use the same title on multiple slides. ● Choosing a descriptive title that helps the audience to appreciate what the specific con- tribution of this slide is.
  5. 5. How best to write plain slide(2) ● When we make a slide, we must not put too much text (or other material) on a slide. ● Because, when a new slide goes up, the audience will turn its attention to comprehend- ing that slide. ● If the audience has to read a lot of text, they will tune you out, probably missing something important.
  6. 6. How best to presentation(1) ● When giving a presentation, never point at your laptop screen, which the audience can- not see. ● Using a laser pointer is fine, but the laser pointer tends to shake (especially if you are nervous) and can be distracting.
  7. 7. How best to presentation(2) ● We should make eye contact with the audi- ence. ● This draws them in and lets you know wheth- er you are going too fast, too slow, or just right. ● Lastly, If you get flustered, don't panic. ● One approach is to stop and regroup; taking a drink of water is a good way to cover this.
  8. 8. How to practice talks ● When giving a practice talk, it is very helpful to dis- tribute hardcopy slides (remember to include slide numbers) ● Because, others can easily annotate them and re- turn them to you at the end of the talk. ● In addition, we should go to other people's practice talks. ● This is good citizenship, and cultivating these ob- ligations is a good way to ensure that you have an audience at your practice talk.
