Use of the Slide Template

Use of the template is recommended but not required. However, please use the template for your title slide even if you chose not to use it for all your other slides.


Keeping your presentation within your program’s allotted amount of time is crucial when operating under a tight SIGGRAPH schedule. See below for some timing tips and tricks:

  • Find out how much time is allowed for your presentation, and then plan your talk and your number of slides accordingly to allow for a relaxed pace.
  • Think of what you would change if the presentation had to be shortened or lengthened.
  • Practice your talk before the conference. Time yourself.
  • Force yourself to slow down a little; a rushed presentation will create more stress for you and won’t be compelling.


  • The technical session rooms at SIGGRAPH 2024 are large, and your presentation must be legible from the back row. If you can stand two meters away from your computer’s monitor and easily read your slides, your text is large enough. To achieve this, limit each slide to eight lines of text or less and limit each line of text to 30 characters or fewer. Use a bold typeface, no smaller than 28 points, with generous line spacing.
  • Use keywords so that your slides will be quick and easy to read. You want the audience to hear your presentation, while the slides accentuate the points to remember. Use standard fonts. That way your presentation will be truly portable. Incorporate only the essential parts of a diagram and simplify whenever possible. While it is tempting to include detail for the sake of accuracy, too much will make the slide difficult to read and become a distraction. Break up complex diagrams into sections if you can, so that each section can be made larger and therefore more legible.


  • Except when part of the template style, avoid the use of ALL CAPITAL letters. Words written in ALL CAPS are harder to read and take up more space on the screen. Use bold face and italics for emphasis, or use a bright color such as yellow text when normal body text is white. Underlined text is not recommended.

Color and Contrast

  • Make good use of color and contrast. Dark backgrounds tend to be easier to view, especially with light text and graphics. Good background color choices are black, blue, maroon, or gradient dark colors. Good text colors are white or yellow. Some of the interior slides in our template use a white background. When using these slides, use black or very dark text and graphics. Maintain consistency throughout your slides. Using the same background color, text size, text color, and uniform fonts throughout all the slides makes it easier for the audience to follow the flow of your ideas.
