Author Presentation Preparation Instructions

In order to maximize exposure for your paper, account for different learning and participation styles and allow interactive and engaging discussions with fellow attendees, each paper presentation will take the form of a pre-recorded video available during the conference and afterwards on the Signal Processing Society Resource Center, as well as a live poster presentation within the CONFlux/Gather.Town Virtual Platform. Each paper will be presented in two ways:

  • Pre-Recorded Video – Since you will have a live poster opportunity to present your paper, you can consider keeping your video presentation brief, as a 5-minute overview of your paper, with or without slides or visual aids. The video can be up to 15-minutes maximum.
  • Poster – The Poster will be used within the Gather.Town platform and presented live. The scheduled time slots will be provided in the coming weeks. One registered author or approved proxy is required to present the paper during this session or it will be marked as a no show.
To prepare your presentation content, you may now prepare and upload a video of your presentation, comprised of a brief introduction with webcam, if desired, followed by voice-over slides for your presentation. Your video will be posted within your session on the IEEE ICIP 2021 on-demand virtual platform. You will also be asked to prepare a poster in a PDF and JPEG file for the poster session, which may contain live links. More detail on preparing your content is outlined below.

Video Presentation Instructions

There are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation. In this method, you can show your face via webcam and display your slides as you talk. You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording and your final file is in the MP4 format. Here are some links to instructions on recording a meeting on common platforms:
