About recording your oral video presentation:
There are various ways that oral presentations can be prerecorded, such as the presenter talking directly to the camera, a voiceover/narration on a PowerPoint (similar to a webinar), or a mix of the two. Tech savvy? Great! Not so tech savvy? Great, too! We'll walk you through some easy options such as recording through Zoom or similar apps.
Please note that if recording on Zoom or a similar app with your thumbnail image shown while speaking that some slide wording may be covered by your thumbnail image.
Please note that if using an older version of PowerPoint, animations do not convert well to video format. If you’d like to use animations, please consider multiple slides to achieve the same effect.
Wide format is preferred, but standard will work as well – just be aware that some black space will be on each side as your slides appear to viewers if you use standard format.
Your video presentation should be at least 9 minutes but may be up to 50 minutes in length.
Record your presentation and save it in either .MP4 or .MOV format. Alternatively, if using a PowerPoint with narration, you may upload it as a .pptx file for us to convert for you. Not sure how to do this? Just ask!
For all formats, please check audio before uploading!
Formatting instructions for poster presentations will be posted at a later date.
About the presentation schedule and discussion:
Presentations will be grouped together by theme. Further information about presentation scheduling will follow closer to the conference. However, presentations will be uploaded daily at midnight (00:00) EST [UTC-5] when the past day's presentations will be moved to our presentation gallery where attendees will still be able to view them.
Once posted, presentations will be open for discussion via commenting throughout the conference. We request that presenters respond to comments in as timely a manner as possible during the conference. Please let us know if you will not be able to respond during the time of the conference so admins can note that responses may be delayed.
Presentations will be made available to the general public via our website after the conference ends, but commenting will be turned off following the conclusion of the conference after presenter responses have been posted. You are welcome to post your contact information for ongoing correspondence from our website visitors.
Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to viewing your abstract proposal!
