Instructions for Poster Presentations

You will prepare your poster in advance and make a short video of yourself discussing the poster (3 minutes maximum), which you will upload to a Dropbox folder that we send you a link to. We will then upload the video to an online poster wall, hosted by Padlet

Deadline for uploading your video to Dropbox: 17 September 2020

During the conference, other participants will be able to visit the poster wall, watch your presentation, and leave comments.

Step-by-step instructions

1. Prepare your poster.

  • There is no need to create a physical poster.
  • Rather, we recommend that you create your scientific poster as a single slide in PowerPoint.
  • There are many useful online guidelines about how to do this.

2. Record yourself while you present your poster.

  • The video should be no more than 3 minutes in length. This means that you have to be selective with what you choose to say! 
  • There are many free and commercial options for recording your screen. These are some free tools you can consider: Loom, TechSmith Screen Capture or OBS Studio.

3. Write a manuscript in English, with time markers, for your presentation.

  • Please follow the format for time markers provided in this template .
  • This manuscript will be used to add captions automatically to your video. Therefore, you do not need to transcribe word-for-word, but rather indicate in coherent sentences what you have said or signed in your presentation.
  • This is an important step, as we will have both deaf and hearing participants at the conference.

4. Upload your video and manuscript to Dropbox. 

  • The EELC8 committee will send you a link to a secure Dropbox folder.
  • The deadline to upload your video and manuscript is 17 September 2020.
  • We will then upload your video to our poster wall, with captions. 

We look forward to interacting with your poster presentation!
