Title Subtitle Use this template for presentations of projects conducted in the Polymer Engineering Center. Use Helvetica font for text. Avoid significant font size variations. When possible, limit the colors of text to Black, Red and Blue. When possible, avoid the use of animation tools (transitions, text, images). Don't overwhelm the audience by adding too many plots, figures or text to a slide.
Title Subtitle Make sure the presentation follows a logical or chronological sequence. When referring to software or equipment, include full name (i.e. COMSOL Multiphysics ®). For conferences, include S.I. units in plots and tables. Set videos to start automatically. Avoid the use of figures and photos downloaded from the internet. If you do, include a reference. Always prepare a conclusions slide. *Rule of thumb: 1 minute per slide.
Plots Include labels and/or legends Use scientific notation when needed (1x103 instead of 1E3). Units go on the scale Visible scales Use different types of markers. If you choose to use colored lines, avoid colors that are difficult to distinguish. (Osswald, 2012) Reference (Name, year)
Figures Check on resolution of image. Avoid pixelated images. Include scale Courtesy of blank Include courtesy when necessary
Equations When possible, use plots to support equations Energy equation Equation title. Include reference when necessary.
Tables Centered vertical alignment Include units Use reasonable significant digits When possible, avoid the use of tables for numerical results. Use plots instead.
Acknowledgements Prepare an acknowledgements slide when necessary. Do not acknowledge co-authors. When acknowledging companies, include the division/department. Guidelines prepared by: W. Aquite, 2014
