Format of Late-News Presentation Accepted papers will be assigned to either oral or poster presentation in the most suitable Workshop/Topical Session/Special Topics of Interest at the discretion of the program committee.

(1) Oral presentations
• Oral presentations will usually conform to the 15-minute format including question and answer period. The program committee will determine the duration of presentation.
• Oral presenters are strongly urged to attend the Author Interviews after the presentation (a table and AC 100 V/60 Hz power will be made available).

(2) Poster Session presentations
• Poster presentations will conform to the less than 3-hour format and will be given in front of an individual poster on a board.
• A table and AC 100 V power will be available for each poster.
• “Short Presentation Sessions” will be held for a part of the poster sessions to introduce the posters and the presenters. The poster presenters in the sessions can give a brief, (typically 1 minute) oral-presentation with no discussion time.
