Virtual Presentations

Presenters that will not be present at the conference, but will participate with a virtual contribution, must also be registered in the conference, their papers are considered to be published as the others and are also entitled to a certificate of participation in the conference. Presenters are required to prepare the content for the presentation itself, which can be made in one of these two ways (in no particular order):

  1. Recording a video of the presentation,
  2. or, Creating a PowerPoint presentation with slides and a voice-over, and saved as a video.
    (the file that you send us must be in VIDEO format, we won’t accept any other file formats)
  3. About recording a video presentation: You can record your presentation through a camcorder, web-camera or mobile phone with at least 4 mega pixels quality. Feel free to open your video in an editing program (Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, AVID, Final Cut Pro or other editing software), according to your expertise and convenience, to make alterations and all kind of editing (putting a title, your name, etc). Save your file either in *.AVI, *.MPG, *.WMV or *.MOV (extensions format).
  4. About creating a PowerPoint presentation with a voice-over: Use the PowerPoint program or similar (available in any Operating System) to compose your presentation in slides. This software is convenient and easier for almost all people, but you’re welcome to use other tools, creating advanced presentations. We suggest you start by present a picture of yourself with email contact or affiliations, with a welcome message to the audience, feel free to use your creativity, but try to keep it easy and brief. Use an audio recording device, such as a microphone or other external voice recorder, music, etc. Once you have you PowerPoint slides, you can insert the audio files using the program itself – click Insert > Movies and Sounds > Sound from file (choosing the location of your audio files). You can also record your voice with PowerPoint in each slide, if desired – click Insert > Movies and Sounds > Record sound. One can create self-running slides, including your voice narration. After you made the synchronized PowerPoint presentation, turn it into a movie file – click File > Make Movie – the opened window will allow you to choose the location where you want to save your video from the PowerPoint presentation (save your file either in *.AVI, *.MPG, *.WMV or *.MOV (extensions format).

Important note for videos and PowerPoint videos:

  1. Spoken or written words must be in English.
  2. Try to achieve a good quality voice recording, to facilitate the hearing, by making it in a quiet setting and by speaking clearly and in a paused manner.
  3. Videos and PowerPoint videos should be kept simple, transmitting information clearly, like in a poster presentation with the respective contents. Use clear and visible characters in the writings when editing text or topics.
