Preparing Your Virtual Demonstration Presentation

To support the best possible conference experience and resilience against internet connection problems, we are planning to run a mixture of pre-recorded and live elements for your presentations. As a basis for the live programming, we would like you to be available and ready for voice-over slides live introduction to your demonstration (max 5min) and to answer Q&A live with attendees at the allocated time-slot in the program.  The demonstration itself should be pre-recorded and can be played directly by the presenter during the screen sharing of the overall presentation. Your overall presentation will be 15min plus 3min for Q&A.
As a back-up in case of internet connection problems during your allocated time-slot, we request you to prepare and upload a backup combined video file of your full presentation, comprised of the brief introduction with voice-over slides, followed by the recorded virtual demonstration. Please note that the file must be a combined, single video file in MP4 format (more details below). 

Our recommended approach for recording a compatible back-up video from the content displayed on your computer screen is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries:
