My First Conference Presentation

Hi...Finally, my tight schedule is already done, only left the submission paper. Anyway, the date to submit the paper is postponed to 24th November. hehehe... I can release a bit. But, these weekend I have to complete 3 experiments for research which I'm not familiar at all that related to fiber optic network system.

I want to share with you some pictures on my first experience in conference presentation. The conference was named as " 2008 Autumn Conference & Annual Meeting of Korean Society for Railway" and the organizer is The Korean Society for Railway. This is the picture that i took in front the main door of Kim Dae Jung Conventional Center.

I can tell you... the waiting time for your turn to present was worst than you step out to present to the audiences who are expert in the area that you present. My title is "Structural Health Monitoring on Train - A review in damage detections techniques". Luckily, the room was small (like tutorial class) and about 15 persons attending the presentation. The picture below is the room.

When it was my turn, the chairman introduce me. When, I introduce myself in english, they seems so surprise, because they thought that I'm a Korean (am I look like Korean....hehehehe). Then, I told them I'm from Malaysia and Master's Student in Chonbuk National University, and asking for excuse for allowing me use english for the presentation. The pictures show I was presenting my work.

The presentation took about 15 minutes but it was very nervous hahahha... although I used to give lectures for about 7 years. Maybe the difference is I'm presenting to the experts. Anyway, the session was smooth and not much questions asking by them. Only one fellow asked what is purpose of these research paper. I'm not sure my presentation was so bad until he don't understand the purpose of the paper, or he was not really understand what i'm presenting.

This is really a good experience for me ... also is a good start for my journey in this line... Conference and research and journals.... I really like the feeling after finished presentation, is like a release and satisfactory although not really perfect, but is a good start for me. (still a lots of thing waiting for me to face... and challenge it.)
