You are requested to prepare and upload a video of your presentation by the deadline indicated below. We strongly encourage presenters to be creative in presenting their work. Your video presentation is expected to contain at least a brief introduction of the speaker with a webcam, if desired, followed by voice over slides for your presentation. We urge you to take advantage of the virtual conference opportunity to better convey the technical knowledge to the attendees. For example, you may show demos, experimental apparatus/setup of your work. This will be considered as a partial fulfilment of your attendance requirement at the conference, and is a requirement for your paper to remain in IEEE Xplore.

In order for videos to be verified by the technical program committee, there is considerable urgency in preparing and uploading your video. Accordingly, we ask you to finalize and upload your video by Monday, July 27th  (extended until 21 August 2020,  FIRM deadline).

There are several video conferencing tools available to easily record your presentation. You may use any software as long as you get a high-quality recording and your final file is in MP4 format.

Our recommended approach to record a compatible video from content displayed on your computer screen and voice recorded via the computer microphone, is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries:

Instructions for recording your presentation with Zoom:

You can also use the two-step method covered below:

            OSB Studio,  PowerPoint,   iMovie and Lightworks.

 You can use the following video compression tools to bring it down to the size limit of 150MB.
