2020 SISE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE GUIDELINES AND PREPARATION

Due to the COVID-19 situation, SISE 2020 has been converted into a virtual conference, which will be held via the Microsoft Teams event platform. To prepare for the virtual conference, we ask you to submit a pre-recorded presentation (voice over PowerPoint or a video file) in advance.

Each paper will be given 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation + 5 minutes for Q&A). At least one author must join the live virtual session to answer questions during the allocated presentation time. Please carefully review the following guidelines and specifications before recording your presentation.

The deadline for all video submissions is 13 September 2020!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RECORDING PRESENTATION

SISE encourages you to include an audio/video presentation of your research/application and take this opportunity to explain your work and get more exposure to the audience, and at the same time engaging the attendees. Recording should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides along with audio of the presenter. The recording may also contain a small headshot of the presenter. Many presentation software allows recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files.

Tips for recording:

  1. Use a quiet area to record
  2. Avoid echoes by keeping the following in mind
    1. a. Rooms should be fairly small
      b. Sound dampening with carpeting, curtains, furniture
  3. Hardline internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, a strong Wi-Fi connection
  4. Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”.  If possible, avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.
  5. Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation.  Make adjustments if needed.
