A happy Shaojun Huang returned to CEE after attending the 2017 4th International Conference on Power and Energy Systems Engineering (CPESE 2017) on September 25-29, 2017, in Berlin, Germany.

The conference included ten sessions with different topics and Huang won the Best Oral Presentation Reward for session X - Smart Grid and Power Generation Technology.

The chair of the session named Huang the winner because of his excellent spoken english, his efficient and well prepared presentation as well as the high quality of his paper. Furthermore the chair complimented his vivid Power Points.

In Huang´s own words to deliver a succesful oral presentation one must prepare a good story of scientific methods and results in the paper, present the story in an efficient way (only 15 minutes) and rehearse the presentation in front of your colleagues. 

It is also important to link the conference theme with the background of the paper, he explains.

"The background includes the overall situation we are facing, the motivation why we do this research, what problem we are trying to solve.The background can also include the project that is funding this research," says Huang.

One should also keep in mind, that even though the audience are in the same research sector the specific research topic and method may still be difficult for them to understand, Huang explains.

"So make it understandable in just 15 minutes and a few slides," he says.

Finally one must put effort into communicating the paper in a vivid way to keep the audience interested:

"Scientific methods and results are usually boring if we present them exactly the same way as in the paper. We should make it more userfriendly and easily acceptable to the audience," Huang says and continues:

"Last but not the least, use good pictures instead of text. Let the audience watch and listen to our presentation, not read it."
