2021/2/21 作成

At 4, 2, and 1 week before your presentation, you must submit your presentation materials to your supervisor.
発表の4, 2, 1週間前に、プレゼン資料を指導教官に提出して下さい。

As the below, I will explain what kind of contents you should prepare.
However, I know, you can not understand my message only from the texts. Thus, you should submit some presentation file at 4, 2, and 1 week before your presentation. So, you will receive more concrete advice from me. Don’t worry . You will never get scolded, since you are still student, not yet professional researcher. You will get scolded when you will have not so good presentation without any submission. Which is your favorite?? lol
