Guidelines for Speakers


All presentations will be made from the wiki site. Instead of creating a separate ppt or pdf file for your presentation, you'll place everything on a wiki page(s) that will be the basis for your talk. Every presentation on the agenda is already linked to a page for you to use.

The goal of this approach is to consolidate information on a specific topic to (1) make it easier to find and keep updated and (2) reduce the workload on speakers and team meeting hosts. Instead of having to log in to SPMS or go through several separate attachments to find what you need, the latest information will be readily accessible in one up-to-date version, in one location.

The linked pages contain the presentation title and contact/speaker name and a very basic template.

Before you begin, please review the information on the Getting Started page. You'll find links to all the information you should need to develop your presentation, from basic editing to more advanced topics.

What Should My Completed Page Look Like?

This will vary, of course, depending on the content. However, there are a few elements that should appear on all pages:

  • Title
  • Contact
  • Brief introduction to the topic and/or what the page covers (200 words max).
  • A reference list of links to related information if available.

Examples of Good Pages

These pages were posted years ago, so they don't fit the template we are using now; however, the content and the way it is presented (with graphics, screenshots, etc.) is very well done.

If you have questions about using the Wiki, contact Stefano Deiuri (WiKi Webmaster), Charlie Horak (Content Coordinator), or Ivan Andrian (JACoW Chair).
