Information for Oral Presenters
We’re pleased to offer the option of giving oral presentations live OR submitting them as pre-recorded videos.
Pre-recorded presentations will be streamed by the organisers to all the participants, but the questions and discussion at the end of the talk will still be done live, with the session chair and video/audio streaming.
Details of pre-recorded talks:
Stick to the maximum duration e.g. 12 minutes for a 15 minute slot so that there is time for questions and discussion
· Stick to the maximum duration e.g. 12 minutes for a 15 minute slot so that there is time for questions and discussion
· Video format:
o You can (optionally) include video of yourself on top of the slide as a Picture-in-Picture effect.
o If you are using PowerPoint, then it's in-built “record presentation" facility can work quite well at producing an audio narration for your video.
o Camtasia or Zoom can record your webcam as an overlay.
o To trim off the start/end of your video or perhaps to cut together a couple of takes, Windows Photos has simple editing facilities; Apple iMovie, Camtasia or Kdenlive are more sophisticated movie editors.
o Just about any video format for the final video will be acceptable: mp4 or webm preferred. 16:9 aspect ratio in either HD (1080) or SD (720).
o Please listen to the audio you have recorded to make sure that it's understandable and loud enough. Try to find a quiet room for the recording.
During the symposium
· The organisers will stream the video and audio you have recorded to all participants.
· The audience will have questions that they would like to discuss with you.
· The session chair will coordinate the questions for you to answer at the end.
We intend to include a few dual presentations in the program. A dual presentation is where two collaborating authors combine to present a single presentation of twice the duration (ie 30 minute time slot). This might work well for people working in the same group or group leaders who are collaborating. Please indicate on the abstract submission form if you would like to be considered for a dual presentation.
