Presentation Venue - Laptop's and Portable Device

posted Dec 1, 2016, 11:02 PM by Research Challenge India

All teams are advised to carry their own laptops and soft copy of presentation in a portable device. This step will act as a backup to the existing IT systems at the venue and is purely to hedge ourselves against issues like

  • Non-standard presentation software
  • Different versions of Microsoft office and Powerpoint
  • Difficulty in accessing Add ins for Animations on slides or
  • Any other technical issues like editing etc.

Note : Please name your Presentation with Team Code only. Your laptop/pen drive should have PPT named with TEAM CODE only. In any case your college name ( don’t even mention team members names) should not reflect, otherwise your team will be disqualified immediately.


We cannot assure you if the venue would have facility/flexibility to upload a newer version of presentation or edit the existing one. For all practical purposes, we will only consider the presentation submitted by you on or before the above deadline as a qualifying entry.


The hard copy of the presentation (if possible we will take prints otherwise we will request you to do so) submitted by you would be used by Judges to refer to slides, make notes, ask questions, etc.


For questions, email team@iaipirc.org


 

Official Rules

2.7 Presentations

Each team may make a presentation of their findings to a panel of judges.

a. Teams may utilize their industry mentor and/or faculty adviser as a resource for guidance, direction, suggestions, and feedback but may not enlist the help of any other professionals in preparing content or evaluating the presentation, including conducting practice presentations in front of one or more professionals (e.g., mock judging panels). Teams may utilize presentation coaches or other public-speaking resources as long as those resources do not contribute to the content of the presentation.

b. The students may not hand the judges any printed materials before or after the presentations, but the local host can print out the presentation slides for each team and distribute to the judges before the event.

c. Teams may not use props in their presentation.10

d. Only team members may participate in the presentation.

e. The presentation is limited to 10 minutes; however, an additional 10 minutes will be provided to answer questions posed by the judges. Only judges are permitted to pose questions to a team during the Q&A portion of a presentation.

f. Each presentation will be timed and the timekeeper will provide a one-minute warning and an announcement when time has expired. When the timekeeper announces that time has expired, teams must immediately conclude the presentation.

g. Presentations will be judged according to Appendix E, “Presentation Scoring Sheet.”

**A prop is defined as an object used by students to enhance or illustrate an aspect of the team presentation.

Students are requested to join the conference by dialing in at 3:20 PM (IST) sharp on October 3, 2016. 


India (Toll-free) Access : 1800-209-7129

Participant Access code511106

On dialing the above number the participants would be connected to the conference operator who would greet and capture their details (viz. Team Leader name and their college name) and place them in the conference room in a listen only mode. Connected Participants will be on hold with music until the actual call starts.

As soon as the host/s is ready, their lines would be transferred in the main conference room. The operator would then welcome all the participants and handover the call to the host after a brief introduction of the host/s.

Once the host is through with his presentation/brief and wants to invite questions from the participants, the actual Q&A would start wherein the participants are instructed to press *1 to ask a question.

The participants lined up to ask questions would be un-muted one by one, introduced and allowed to ask questions. After all the questions are answered, the call once again would be handed over to the host for the concluding remarks.

Please note that due to limited number of ports, all team members should dial in as a single  group 

from one location to the conference call and Team leader should ask the question.  Attendance is MUST for every team.

We will record the conference and should be able to provide the audio recording later.
