报告地点：腾讯会议 ID: 776-204-081
报告摘要： Almost on a daily basis, we attend academic talks and technical presentations routinely. However, have you ever had the experience that, no matter how hard you try to "tune in," you are unable to understand what has been presented in most of these talks? Your experience may very well be right: most of the talks are not presented in the correct way, and the speakers fail to communicate effectively to their audience. But how do we communicate effectively in an academic or technical presentation? What went wrong with most of these talks? In this talk, we will depart from conventional wisdom and focus on effective communication in presentations. We will discuss how talks should be designed, rehearsed, and delivered. This talk will be delivered in the English language.
