An oral presentation of your work followed by a brief question & answer period will take place in a chaired session along with other presenters.
Both Pre-recorded and Live Presentations
You have the option of either presenting your research as a pre-recorded video or live presentation during the allocated timeslot. Regardless of which approach you take, all oral presenters must pre-record their presentation and upload the file (see Pre-recording and Uploading Video(s) detailed below). For live presenters, your pre-recorded presentations will serve as backup in case of technical issues during the presentation.
Adjusting Your Time
Your presentation should be roughly 10-12 minutes long and it must allow 3-5 minutes for audience questions and a total allotted time of 15 minutes.
PowerPoint presentations should use a ‘wide-screen (16:9)’ format. Go to the Design tab then select Slide Size. On the dropdown menu, select ‘Widescreen (16:9)’ and click OK.
Pre-recording and Uploading Video
Pre-recorded video format and instructions:
Use Zoom, PowerPoint, or another capture program to pre-record your session talk. The recording will serve as a back-up if we experience any technical difficulties, or if you are unable to attend the live/synchronous session for some reason.
All video uploads are due by Monday, 12 July
Save your file with the following naming scheme: YourLastName_YourFirstName.mp4.
The video files must be saved in MP4 format.
The file size should be less than 150 MB.
Recording tips & tutorials:
To make the pre-recorded presentations more lively and attractive, we suggest to simultaneously record you with a webcam while capturing your Powerpoint or similar presentation. Put your face into the recording. Nobody really wants to watch a talk when the speaker is a ghost. This keeps it personal.
While recording, imagine that you are talking to a live audience and be expressive and excited about your scientific achievements.
Do a brief practice-run to ensure that your audio and visuals are good before completing a full-length recording.
A separate session will follow your oral presentation session. You along with other presenters will have a 45-minute session to interact with those who are interested in your presented work. See additional details on the Simulation Discussion Guidelines.
