Presentation Guidelines


To maximise the accessibility and asynchronous interaction between attending researchers, we kindly ask you to create your presentations materials. Please find the information and guidelines for your respective presentation below. Make sure to share your materials with us within the given time frame as we will require some time to set up all presentations and interaction spaces. We are excited to receive your work and to meet you at the conference this August! 


Paper presentations 

We kindly ask you to record a 20-minute video of your paper presentation. This is to ensure a smooth flow between presentations and to minimize the potential mishaps due to internet connection issues. Please find here these helpful guides from vICIS 2020 regarding how to record a video of your presentations using Powerpoint or Zoom. Please include an opening and closing slide, providing information such as your title and contact details. Feel free to include any further materials you wish to share. 

Please make sure to send us your materials before August 6th! See below for the options we recommend for sharing your material with us. 


Poster Presentations 

For poster presentations, the main requirement is to create and send us your poster, suitable for the live poster sessions in Gather (including a thumbnail version, see guide below). We, furthermore, highly recommend you to record a 5-minute video allowing asynchronous interaction with interested researchers during and after the conference. Feel free to include any further materials you wish to share.  

Please find here a comprehensive guide from the Photonicsonlinemeetup on how to create a poster suitable for Gather . Furthermore, here you can find really helpful guides from vICIS 2020 regarding how to record a video of your presentations using PowerPoint or Zoom. For the video, please include an opening and closing slide, providing information such as your title and contact details.
