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.
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!
