Outstanding presentations will be awarded at an Awards ceremony on July 1, 18:30-19:10, at Laguna Garden Hotel. All presenters are requested to attend the award ceremony.
The details will be announced on the webpage when decided.
For Wakate Dojo presenters
Please read the guidelines below prior to your presentation.
Judging and evaluation of presentations:
Oral presentations will be graded on a 25-pont scale. The 3 categories, 1) research content (max 10 points), 2) presentation skills including time management and slide organization (max 10 points), 3) Q&A performance during your presentation (max 5 points), will be scored. Additional points will be added based on your questions to other speakers during your Wakate Dojo session (max 5 points).
Please tell your name and the name of your institution before you ask questions.
How to prepare your presentation:
The basic presentation, General introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion, are welcome.
However, we also allow presentation focusing on the weakness of your current research and proposal-type presentation such as; what you have not achieved and what could be changed to get an answer.
Japanese speakers will use Japanese for their presentation and discussion as noted on the web page.
Request Concerning Use of Color in Presentation Materials
Approximately 5% of Japanese men (3 million people) and 8% of Caucasian men have a specific type of vision that makes it difficult to distinguish between colors in a particular range, including red and green. In light of this, you are requested to take the following points into account when preparing presentation materials.
- Images of two-color staining or DNA chips should be displayed in green and magenta, not in green and red.
- Three or more stains should be displayed not only as composites containing all three colors but also with the two most important colors shown alone in green and magenta. (Alternatively, images of each channel can be displayed separately.)
- In graphs and explanatory figures, it is extremely difficult to match colors shown in two separate places. For this reason, do not use only color-coded descriptions or legends for different items but also write them directly into figures. Do not differentiate between items by using different colors, but rather with different types of lines, shapes/symbols, or various types of hatching.
- On a dark background, please use white, yellow, or orange letters rather than thin, red or blue ones as much as possible.
For further information, refer to.
COI (Conflict of Interest) Declaration
Please place the information either at the top or on the last page of your slides, or the bottom of your poster.
