The Role of the Presenter
Presentations are unsuccessful when the audience is not motivated to read the full paper. The following are some ideas for how authors can get the audience engaged and excited about the paper. Most practices in the DON'T column are standard procedure. The object should be a presentation that covers less but makes a compelling argument that the paper should be read.
These guidelines are not intended to be rigid. The main point is to sell rather than summarize. Again, the objective is to get the audience to read the paper, not to present so much detail that the audience has no reason to read it after.
