2) Preprints for each presentation in the special sessions should be within 2 pages (please confirm session organizers’ instruction). Preprints for the general sessions limited to 1 page for each presentation.


3) Only PDF file is acceptable. Please make a PDF file in accordance with instruction below.

・Each PDF files should be readable and printable using Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and later.
・Each PDF file may not exceed 3 MB.
・Fonts used in the abstract should be embedded to avoid character garbling.
・Please do not add security features to the file.


4) Guideline for description.

・The preprints are constructed from presentation title, affiliation(s), name(s) of author(s), abstract,
(50 to 100 words) and main text.
・The presenting author should be indicated by underline.
・A blank line should be added after title, names of authors (affiliations), and abstract, respectively.
・The contact information(e-mail address or facsimile number) of the corresponding author should be inserted after the abstract. If the presenting author is a student, the supervisor’s information would be helpful.
・The abstract and the main text should be separated with a solid line.
・The recommended resolution of pictures and figures is 600 dpi.

・Please use SI units.


3. OS and application software for the preparation of PDF files

The use of Windows 2000/Me/XP or Mac OS 9.2 or higher versions is recommended. To produce PDF files, the use of Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or a higher version is recommended.

Instructions for Oral Presentations

A seat will be provided for the next speaker. Please be sure to be seated there when the presentation preceding yours starts. If you plan to use a liquid crystal display (LCD) in your presentation, connect your PC to the monitor switch and switch to the video output mode in advance.

Please review the following carefully to ensure your readiness and avoid problems.

A. Presentation Time

Twenty minutes total (general presentaion). (time for guest presentation and the question-and-answer period will differ depending on the session in which you participate. )

B. Equipment and Materials

  1. The Ceramic Society of Japan(CerSJ) will provide the following:
    LCD, connection cables (mini D-sub 15-pin terminal (male)), monitor switch, AC power for PC (table outlet).
  2. Presenters should prepare the following.
    If you plan to use the LCD: A PC (with mini D-sub 15-pin video output terminal (female)) and a connection adaptor if your PC is not equipped with a mini D-sub 15-pin terminal (female), particularly if you use an ultrathin laptop computer or a Macintosh.
  3. A preview room will be available.
    Presenters can prescreen their files in advance of their presentation. Please note that the projector in the preview room may not necessarily be of the same type as that in the conference room.

C. Flow of Preparation and Presentation

“Connect cables (to PC) before presentation” -->
“Switch output mode to external video output” -->
”Select your video output” -->
”Give presentation” -->
“Disconnect cables from PC upon completion of the presentation”

D. Points to be checked

  1. Please check how to change the your PC screen output mode to external video output in your PC operating manual. The procedure for Windows and Mac OS differs, and also it depends on your PC model and OS version.
  2. Please check the screen resolution of your PC (XGA, SXGA, SXGA+, WXGA, etc). The LCD projectors used in the meeting can display up to XGA (1024 x 768 pixels). SXGA or higher resolution and WXGA for wide displays may not be displayed properly.
  3. Please familiarize yourself with the operation of the presentation software (such as PowerPoint).

E. Notes

  1. The society will not provide PCs for presentations. (The organizer may provide them.)
  2. You are responsible for all operations, including connecting your PC to the monitor switch and selecting your video output.
  3. As a seat for the next speaker will be provided, please be sure to be seated there before your turn and be ready for your presentation.
  4. The monitor switch installed by the society has four cables, enabling you to set up your connection during the three presentations prior to yours. Please allow enough time for preparation.
  5. Please be aware that some types of PC (including some with a Macintosh) do not recognize the video output mode unless the LCD connection is made before the PC is started up.
  6. There will be no audio connection.
  7. Please turn off all sound from the PC during preparation and presentation.
  8. Please check that there is sufficient PC power and deactivate the power-saving function so that your PC will not shut down during your presentation.
