You will have 20 minutes for your paper, with 5 minutes of discussion.
Make sure that you drop by our Help Center before you present (opened at scheduled times before & during the conference). We want to check that everything works & that you are comfortable with the virtual format.
It is especially important that you practice in the Help Center if you 1) use dual monitors and/or 2) include a video or audio clip in your presentation (see here).
Practical instructions for your session and time slot:
- You will find the correct Zoom link for you session in the conference program sent to you via email.
- Be present in your Zoom room 10 minutes before the session starts. Your host will ask you to test your audio and video and share screen, to preempt problems/delays when it it time to for you to present.
- If you are the first presenter in the session, stay in the room.
- If you are not the first presenter in the session, you may leave to enjoy papers in other rooms, but come back to your Zoom room at least 5 minutes before you are scheduled to present.
- Open your Powerpoint presentation on your computer. It needs to be open before you share your screen with everyone.
- Your chair will call your name & ask you to share your screen and unmute your audio.
- When you are finished presenting & no longer need to show your Powerpoint, click on ‘Stop share’. (Your chair can help you, if needed.)
Here are our 'how-to' instructions for Zoom.
General requirements: To present your paper, you will need...
- a computer;
- a headset or conference microphone;
- a web camera (either built-in camera on your computer or an external one);
- a stable internet connection.
Please sit in a room where you will not be disturbed.
You will be able to share a Powerpoint (or other) presentation from your own screen. Audience members will see both you and your presentation on their screens.
If you are co-presenting a paper, agree that one of you will control the presentation. Co-presenters just have to open their microphone when it is their tiem to speak.
We strongly suggest that you keep you presentation simple, with no hyperlinks.
