ASE 2019
Sun 10 - Fri 15 November 2019 San Diego, California, United States

Congratulations again for having your work accepted for presentation at ASE 2019! Below we provide information to help you prepare your presentation.


ASE 2019 has a “blended” program where papers from the Research, Industry, Demo, and Journal First tracks are combined in sessions that are organized by topic. The complete program is available online:

Presentation Time

Sessions are 100 minutes long. The papers will be presented in the order they are listed in the program, and the presentation slot for each paper is determined by a paper’s track:

  • Technical research papers: 20 minutes
  • Experience papers: 20 minutes
  • New Idea papers: 10 minutes
  • Industry papers: 20 minutes
  • Tool demo papers: 10 minutes
  • Journal first papers: 20 minutes

The slots include time for Q&A. We recommend limiting talks to about 17 minutes for 20-minute slots and to about 7 minutes for 10-minute slots. Please prepare your talks within these time limits. The slot limits will be enforced by the session chairs.


The rooms will NOT have laptops, so you will need to bring your own machine, as well as any needed adapters. The projectors have HDMI and VGA inputs. The projectors support the 4:3, 16:9, and 16:10 aspect ratios, with 16:10 being the native resolution. We also recommend that you bring a USB stick with your presentation as a backup if something goes wrong. Please do not rely on internet access for your presentation. If you plan to use video or audio, stream media or have any special AV requirements, please contact immediately.

Presentation Itself

Please come to the presentation room at least 15 (and ideally 30) minutes before the session starts to meet the session chair and to check the equipment. Please make sure that the microphone is in place and working, and that the projector is working with your setup. Feel free to take the opportunity to talk with your session chair.

They may ask how to pronounce your name, and you can ask them how to pronounce their name if you do not know it. The session chair will introduce you before your talk. This introduction is an opportunity to tell the audience a little bit about you. In particular, you may want to let your session chair know if you or your co-authors are looking for an internship, looking for a job, or hiring.

Supplementary Material

You are encouraged to share your slides (PDF format recommended) on the conference web site. Log in to the website and click on the red pencil button on the detail page for your talk and use the ‘Media Attachments’ tab. Note that you can also share other media such as a video on that page. Please consider depositing a preprint of your paper if you have not already done so.

We are looking forward to seeing you in San Diego!
