About Presentation

Presentation for academic purpose


  1. Fluent transition between subsections. Remember to note the bigger picture from time to time.

  2. For the literature review part, remember to discuss the pros and cons of existing work with an objective view.

  3. For presentation, don’t fill it with your whole paper. Presenting 30% of the content clearly is better than pouring 100% of blurry concepts.

  4. For PQE/survey, spend a bit more time on the challenges that are faced in your topic area.

Present to outsiders

  • What is the problem? Why trivial solution doesn’t work?

  • analytics tasks

  • Why is it important?

  • Why is it challenging? E.g.

  • Spatio is easy, temporal is easy, but spatio-temporal is very hard…
  • Scalability, when data become to large scaled, very high dimension

  • How existing work improve the state-of-the-art? Their contribution?

  • Form relations between works

  • Unsolved issues?

Three stories

  2. Scalability, how people solve it.
