Presentation Guidelines

  1. To record your presentation as an .MP4 file, you can use a number of different software platforms, including Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Adobe Connect. We also recommend OBS Studio, a free and open source recording program that allows you to record video from your screen as well as webcam. With all of these tools, you can scroll through a prepared PDF or Powerpoint presentation while recording your verbal presentation.
  2. We suggest recording in a quiet room with minimal background noise and interruption. Try to use a good headset or microphone to ensure optimal audio quality.
  3. Please use the title slide template provided by the Conference Chairs for the first slide in your presentation.
