If it is your first time or you have very little time to get the job done, it might feel like a daunting task. I have found following the below steps to help out :
Step 1 : Follow the template of the paper at hand and transform it in a presentation format as fast as possible. Here you deal with each section independently and summarise it point-wise, highlighting the major, broad points. This takes care of 80% of the content of your final presentation, without much mental work.
Research presentation template : Motivation – Related Works – Proposed Method – Dataset – Results – Conclusion – Future Work – References
Step 2 : One advice that I repetitively got was to arrange the presentation in a storyline format. You should go through this article to get a rough idea of what I mean. There is no fixed step-by-step technique that I can lay down, but some points to keep in mind.
- Within first 2 minutes of the presentation, the audience should clearly understand the motivation and key, novel contributions of the paper
- After describing the problem setting, I suggest to explain it using an example. This can be a way to support the motivation of the paper.
- If the methodology is quite long or complex, it is a good idea to use a flowchart, to give an idea how the different individual sections fit in the overall system. This helps the audience to better understand the utility and methodology used in each section.
