Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Guidelines

Presentations at ITEA events should:

  • Contribute technically sound knowledge in a particular area of test and evaluation;
  • Present new knowledge or experience that has not been published previously; and,
  • Not be commercial, marketing, or “infomercial” in nature. The presentation’s
    introductory slide is the only slide that may contain the presenter’s company name and/or
    logo. Presentations that promote specific companies, organizations, products, or services
    are reserved for the Exhibit Hall or Vendor Track Sessions, and strictly prohibited in Pre-Workshop
    sessions (including tutorials, demonstrations, and other presentations), and the
    Workshop Plenary and Technical Track sessions.

Tutorials are typically scheduled for either a half-day or full day, should include comprehensive
presentations on well-established topics, and may include hands-on exercises on using various
software and/or hardware tools. Technical Track Session presentations are shorter than tutorials
and usually last 20 minutes, with an additional 10 minutes for questions.

While tutorials go into considerable depth, Technical Track Session presentations give quick
holistic overviews of interesting emerging topics with a concentration on fundamentals and
projection about the future of these topics.

Poster Presentations, usually displayed in the Exhibit hall, are designed to present Works-in-Progress,
new ideas, and emerging fields and research topics in test and evaluation. Poster
presenters are expected to bring their printed poster and handouts, and to be present during
scheduled times for the Poster Presentation session(s). Attendees will browse the posters and
directly interact with the presenters. Thus, the poster session is intended to be an informal,
conversational forum for new ideas. Poster Paper Guidelines
