Technical instructions for video recording of the lecture

Dear colleagues,

As previously announced, all authors are required to submit a pre-recorded video of their presentation or poster. We will be happy to receive the video of your presentation not later than 20th September 2020 at our contact email:

The presentation can be recorded by the author or any of the co-authors, and should be with duration up to 15 minutes.

The recording should consist of a voice over slides, or also include a visual representation of the speaker within the frame. For optimal quality, we suggest the use of MP4 video file format.

It is possible to make an easy and stress free record of your presentation using some of the available video conferencing tools. If you prefer, you can show your face via webcam and display your slides as you talk. 

To perform the video record you may use the most popular platforms, like Cisco Webex or Zoom, but any other meeting software is acceptable as long as you get a good quality recording and your final file is in the MP4 format. 

Both platforms are providing on their webpages instructions for recording a meeting: for Zoom, and for Cisco Webex, but probably you may like some shared experience of the common users worldwide struggling with the same issue, e.g. here for Zoom (valid for recording in Webex). Another good possibility is the voice over slides option provided by Microsoft PowerPoint. More information how to use it, you may find here:

Create Voice Over Powerpoint and convert to MP4.

Guidelines for the video lecture:

  • Duration: up to 15 minutes
  • Video file format: mp4
  • Due date: 25 October 2020 

Tips for recording:

  1. Use quiet area if possible. Avoid areas that have echo.
  2. Use a headset with microphone if available. Avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.
  3. Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality.
