Instructions for Authors/Speakers (Updated on March 31, 2015)

One of the authors of each accepted full paper is requested to give a presentation at the RailTokyo2015 conference which is held at Tsudanuma Campus, Chiba Institute of Technology on March 23-26, 2015. Note that the speaker must register for the conference and that at least one author per paper must register with a full fee, by the date mentioned on the registration webpage. Examples of presentation files presented at a previous conference can be downloaded at the RailZurich2009 website .

The speaker on each presentation subject has 20 minutes; 15 minutes for a presentation and 5 minutes for a discussion. The presentation and the discussion have to be made in English.

Each conference session room will be equipped with a projector with no audio out as well as an English version of MS Windows 7 PC, and each speaker is requested to bring his/her presentation file written in English in his/her own, Windows formatted, USB-stick. It must be an MS PowerPoint file (.pptx is recommended, .ppt is not) which can be opened in MS PowerPoint 2010, or a PDF file which can be opened in Adobe Reader XI. The speaker can bring his/her own laptop PC (not tablet or smartphone) for the presentation, provided that it has a 15-pin VGA port . If not, the speaker must also bring a proper adapter, such as a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter and an HDMI to VGA adapter, depending on his/her own PC. Note also that, in Japan, the voltage used is 100 volts, A.C., the frequency of electric current is 50 Hertz (in Tokyo) , and that the Type A plug is used.

If the speaker requests, (an edited) presentation file (in the PDF format) of his/her talk can be uploaded on this website after the conference, provided that there is no copyright problem. The speaker has a responsibility to solve such a problem before the conference, if it exists.
