Virtual Conference Guideline

Basic session structure(1 session =100 min. )

10 minutes before the Session: The host will start the designated meeting.
The session chair, authors, and co-authors will join the meeting 2 minutes before the session: the host will start the recording.
Beginning of the session: A session chair introduces the session and the authors (5 min. Pre-)

The pre-recorded video presentation will be broadcasted by the host/secretariat.

15 min. per presentation x 4 = 60 minutes followed by live Q&A and discussions of 35 min.

Authors need to record their 15 minutes presentation and submit it to the conference secretariat by June 15, 2021. These videos are played in an appropriate session during the conference. Instructions on how authors can submit their video files are specified below. During the actual presentation time on August 30, 31, and September 1, 2021, authors need to be available online to answer Q&A from conference viewers moderated by the respective session chairs.

Please observe the following guidelines when preparing video files of your papers.

Duration of video files

The presentation time is 15 min. We expect you to make your video longer than 14 min. and no longer than 15 min.

Do not send multiple short-time videos per paper. Even if the total video duration is 15 min, we only accept 1 continuous movie clip per paper. Pre-edited 1 video is acceptable. An author and co-author(s) must make the video together.

The first author must take responsibility for submitting the video on time in the right manner.

File Format (tentative)

MPEG-4 (.mp4) file (use the normal H.264 video and AAC audio codecs)

Video Size: Minimum size requirement HD (1,280px w ×720px h) Audio Quality: please double-check your files before submitting them to make sure the audio is clear and audible.

Instructions for video recording

Videos should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides such as PowerPoint or Keynote, or Google Slides, along with audio of the spoken presentation. Optionally videos may contain a shot of the speaker's head for increased engagement. (This shot should be thumbnail-sized and overlayed on the slide images.) Please make sure your whole face is in the angle of view. You should not be on the back of window or light source. A study or a university laboratory, classroom background is preferable. Many presentation software allows recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files.
Please see the notes below for detailed instructions for recording with Zoom or PowerPoint. If you use a different application, please see the notes under Other Options.

Please make sure you record under good lighting in a quiet place. The submitted video must be unpublished.

NOTES:

Zoom recording

1.
Open the zoom and begin the meeting by yourself.
2.
You can start the meeting together with your co-author, if a co-author takes part in the presentation.

PowerPoint recording

Follow these instructions to add audio (and optionally video) to your slides.

Other Options

As a last resort, and only if you are comfortable directly editing video, you can export your slides as images, record an audio track, and combine the two using software like Kdenlive, iMovie, or others.

Instructions for submitting your video link

We are finalizing the method of uploading your video link.
We will send you an email notification once it is ready. The upload must be done between June 8th and June 15, 2021

Recorded presentations will be available first for the participants within a particular session by July 1. After the session chair viewed all four presentations, he/she will record 5 minutes introduction that can stimulate the post discussion for the session by July 10th. All the videos will be available for the authorized participants at the end of July 2021 for authorized persons.

After the virtual conference, these session-by-session videos are stored and become available for authorized view until the end of December 2021.
