We propose a method for supporting presentation planning. Our objective is to support composition of scenarios according to the situation such as the background knowledge of audience and time constraints. Our idea is to introduce a presentation strategy and translate it into the policy of searching a network of content fragments in which they are related with semantic relationships. We propose a mechanism of selecting and ordering the fragments according to a strategy specified by a presenter. This mechanism allows a presenter to compose a scenario from a few fragments specified as important ones by him/her. Our method is expected to bridge the gap between the product of idea organization and presentation slides.
