Preparing your pre-recorded video presentation
Here you can find basic instructions on how to record a presentation with audio & video with PowerPoint: click here.

You need a microphone to record the audio, if an external microphone is not available, built-in microphone in your laptop will work, but make sure you are located in a quiet room. External mic or headset is strongly recommended for better quality audio.

To show your face in the presentation, you can have your webcam feed visible while recording.

Please note the following:

  1. Audio will NOT be recorded during slide transitions, so don’t speak during transitions.
  2. Camera feed usually has to be activated separately from the lower right hand corner camera icon (when you are in the record slide showview).
  3. Make sure the camera feed does not overlap with any important information on your slide.
  4. If you have videos in your presentation, please play them through completely (do not skip them while recording).
  5. Make sure the recording space is well-lit

We recommend that you save the presentation also as an MP4-video (Save as -> Format) and send us both versions (PowerPoint and MP4). Please make sure the audio (+ video) is included in the presentation before sending it.

Tips for preparing your e-poster:
– Pay attention to clear message and logical layout
– A poster should be easy to comprehend in a couple of minutes
– Make sure that the specific sections (such as the background, methods, results and conclusions) are clearly presented
– Avoid large blocks of text and long sentences
– Supporting images (such as graphs, tables, illustrations, photographs) can be very helpful and are often necessary to display results. Make sure that the images are easy to understand and are not overloaded with information.
