Please take into consideration the following updated information about the ONLINE/LIVE Oral and POSTER sessions:
Oral presentation requirements:
A 25 minutes spoken/live presentation, including questions and answers time (5 min) should be prepared; Live video camera feed should be available during the presentation.
The presentation should be in MS-PowerPoint or PDF format and should be sent by email firstname.lastname@example.org (along with a short biography of the presenter included in the first slide of the presentation – recommended first slide template available here) no later than 16th of October, 2020;
Each POSTER session is organized as a two parts event, as follows:
1. The pitching part: One after another, all presenters should tease the audience with a short pitching material aimed to stimulate the audience interest towards the poster.
The purpose of the short – pitching – presentation is to wake interest and convince the audience to come to the poster for further discussions and information exchange. This part can only be:
Pre-recorded presentations can be sent and presented in this session as long as they are sent to the Publication Committee by email at email@example.com (using a file transfer or sharing service such as Wetransfer, Filemail, or Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) not later than 16th of October. These should not exceed 1 minute and should be in AVI or MP4 format. The file should be named IDXXX_VideoPitch_AuthorName_SIITME2020 (where IDXXX is the Paper ID in SIITME2020 CMT platform). You can have one or two slides (PowerPoint or PDF, for 16:9 format preferably 1280×720 or 1920×1080 resolution), and they cannot be overloaded with information. You may use animations, annotations, “spotlight”, as well as video of yourself, but ensure that the recording will appear good to the audience, and not too overloaded. It is recommended to have a picture or video of the presenting author(s) in the video clip. The video pitching presentations will be used instead of live/online pitching and the organizers will carefully insert all pre-recorded presentation in the right place. These presentations will be on demand available during the Conference.
An example tutorial of “How to make a video in PowerPoint” is available here.
A short tutorial for using a Screen Recorder is available here.
2. The poster presentation and evaluation. Once the pitching part is finished (number_of_pitching_presentations x 1 minute each) each presenter will be online, in his/her own virtual room, for the entire duration of the session, in order to answer questions from evaluation committee and audience.
All poster presenters should provide a one-page e-Poster, JPG, PNG or PDF file, named IDXXX_Poster_AuthorName_SIITME2020 in landscape orientation (16:9) sent to the Publication Committee at email firstname.lastname@example.org not later than 16th of October in order to be included in the e-book of Posters available on the conference website to all participants for the entire duration of the event. Although any dimensions can be used, remember that attendees will be viewing posters on their computer screens. We recommend that posters be readable without zoom when displayed at full-screen width. SIITME 2020 will not require a particular template, but you are most welcome to include the banner of SIITME2020 available here.
The poster discussions will continue after the presentation part in the ONLINE Conference Hall, where you will have the opportunity to show your POSTER and receive questions and commentaries from the SIITME reviewers and interested participants.
For this part the author should be present live.
Every presenter must be online. Only presented papers may be sent to IEEE Xplore for publication.
The presenter must be the main author or co-author of the paper.
During a presentation microphones and cameras only of the presenter and the Chairmen will be unmuted. All listening participants will remain muted in order to reduce background noise and save bandwidth
We are looking forward to meeting you ONLINE/LIVE at SIITME 2020!
Papers meeting the quality criteria will be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and ISI Thompson Web of Knowledge.
