people specially, students, always worry about presentations and how to make this day pass peacefully
but for me, it s a different day, when you are speaking and people listen
here, I ll give you simple tips from my short experience...
first, make a good story, yes the story is the backbone of the presentation
make a good start, not the ordinary boring one
dont add dozens of information, that will make your presentation sucks
dont write something you dont know
make it funny as possible
good off-topicing that would serve the idea
pictures, photos, images... add a lot of them, choose carefully
make a short notes to help you during the presentation
write every abbreviation in the notes, you may forget
now it s your presentation day, you are worried?
dont over-dress, normal clothes work perfect
get your mind caffeinated, this will make your mind sharper, and will give you some self-confidence
lets show up....
dont start that you are pleased to be with them, but do your best to make them so
be simple as much as you can, act smoothly
dont think of the stage-fright and it ll never matter
the audience are your friends and supporting you, and wishing you luck too :D
"I know that it s not true, but you have to think like this"
first if you can have a remote device, will help you to move freely
move, move, move
pass your eyes over the audience randomly and focus on the first and the last rows
dont look onto audience eyes, just the forehead
respond to the audience reactions and emotions
make it funny, till the end
draw a sine wave in speeding up and slowing down
be ready for the unexpected comments, questions, criticizing
accept the questions seriously, answer with a smile
if you dont know the answer, go direct and say "I'll check it later"
hope I could give you simple tips to help you make your presentation perfect
your good comments are welcomed :)

we, me and my colleagues, had an open discussion about next year graduation project insha'Allah
the scope of our department project is limited within 3 or 4 categories:
1- control and robotics
3- modeling and simulation
and may be fake image processing
and I dont need any of these except the image processing ... and one friend agreed with me, only one
I dont blame the others, it's upon everyone's interests
but why to stick to normal ideas, why to kill the innovation
"you must make a hardware-related project, NO SOFTWARE"
no one can make a middle-ware software except us
what about mobile applications...
all what I need is permission to think freely
to find a good idea, and a good team to support it
but I still need an idea... idea... idea... idea... idea... idea...
