Virtual presentations

Given the specific situation that exists worldwide regarding the epidemic covid-19, the Conference will be held on-line by virtual presentations. Virtual presentations give the authors the possibility to attend the Conference and present their work from their home or work site.

In addition to on-line (direct) presentation and attendance, the authors can upload their work in video or slides format at the Virtual Room of the Conference Website.

How it works?

The Conference participants can enter the Virtual Room, see a presentation and post questions, remarks and comments at the author of the paper. Each time a participant post a comment or a question, the author of the paper automatically is notified and can answer this question.

On the other hand, the participants can select to “follow” a virtual paper which means that each time something is posted relevant to this paper, the participant is notified. In this way, a discussion forum is build around a Virtual Paper. Moreover, Virtual Papers also give the same publication opportunities as normal papers since they appear in the Conference Proceedings Volume as regular contributions.

What must be uploaded?

A video with the recorded presentation is the best choice. Although, a simple pdf file with the presentation slides is acceptable, it is strongly suggested to create a video with the presentation since only those video-presentations will be played at special sessions in the Conference site.

How to record my presentation?

There are several free and commercial tools to record you computer screen with the input from microphone and web camera. Both Windows 10 and MacOS operating systems have build-in utilities for screen recording.

What is the maximum duration and size of the video?

The maximum duration is 15 minutes and the maximum size is 300 MB.

How can i upload my video?

Once your paper has been accepted, you can upload your video to one of the free available large-file transfer websites (like wetransfer.com). Then, you must email the video link at the Conference secretariat email address (secretariat@icmsquare.net) and we will upload your video to the virtual room.
