The technical programme of UPEC 2021 will be hosted using the virtual conference platform Whova. To allow participants across the globe to have access to the technical content, all authors of accepted and registered papers are required to submit a video presentation of their work and accompanying slides by 2 August 2021 to EDAS. The presentations and slides will be available to watch on demand to participants through Whova before, during and after the conference for a few months (exact dates to be confirmed in due course).
During the conference, one of the registered authors representing the paper will also be expected to present a short "elevator pitch" to prompt an interactive discussion within themed panel sessions that considers the paper. This will be a 2-minute summary of the paper with one accompanying slide.
Please use the conference PowerPoint template available here.
The pre-recorded video presentation is expected to be a maximum of 10 minutes. So, we recommend 1 slide per minute. It is also essential to include a summary slide for the "elevator pitch".
The order given here is indicative of how to organise the presentation, it is fine to adapt it to your specific work.
Slide 1: Title Slide
Slide 2: Introduction
The presentation can be recorded by any of the co-authors named on the paper. Please 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. This is a requirement for your paper to appear in IEEE Xplore. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below). Please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files.
There are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation. With this method, you may show your face via webcam (if youâ€™d like) and display your slides as you talk. You may 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:
