Abstract

This paper introduces a support system for making presentation slides from a technical paper. This system provides functions that assign slides to each section and put objects on a slide. Inputs to this system are a technical paper as a TeX document, the number of slides that a user wants to make, and keywords of the paper. First, the system converts a paper from a TeX document into an XML document. The XML document can include information of a paper such as ID numbers and term weights. Next, the system calculates weights of terms in the document by the TF*IDF method. Based on the term weights, objects in the document such as sentences, figures and tables are weighted. Using the weights of the objects and slide composition templates, the system decides how many slides are assigned to each section. If a user does not like the assignment, she/he can reassign slides to the section using a presentation composition editor. Then, the system selects a layout for a slide considering the objects in the slide, and extracts objects arranged on the slide. The user can rearrange the objects on the slide using a slide editor. Finally, outputs of the system are generated as presentation slides in XHTML. From experimental results, we concluded our system is useful for making presentation slides.
