Hybrid format

CinC 2021 will be a hybrid format conference, which means we will have both an in person edition and a remote online version of the conference going at the same time. The conference will be held in complete safety, and in full compliance with the rules and health protocols, protecting the health of both organisers and visitors.

Speech format

Length: The time allocated for each oral presentation is 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for discussion.

The only exception to the 10-minute limit for oral presentations is for the four finalists in the Rosanna Degani Young Investigator Award competition, who are each allotted 15 minutes for their talks, followed by 5 minutes for discussion.

Attendees will have access to a dedicated online chat that can be used to comment and ask questions. Questions, both from the online chat and the in-room audience, will be asked exclusively at the end of each speech, in  order to avoid interruptions and guarantee online attendees a better experience.

Speakers are expected to adhere strictly to the event schedule, which will be enforced if necessary by session chairs in order to finish sessions on time and to permit participants to move successfully from one parallel
session to another.

Some dummy section

Onsite speakers must come to the conference room where they will be presenting at least 15 minutes prior to the session.

Load and check your presentation in the dedicated folder on the PC connected to the projector.

The session chairpersons need to know who will be presenting each scheduled paper. Help them by introducing yourself, and letting them know which paper you will be presenting.

There will also be a local person available to provide technical assistance.

Record video

The best way to record a presentation

Recording presentation is a piece of cake with PowerPoint inbuild recording function. See the short tutorial. Use 16:9 format, export your presentation as *.mp4 when finished and you are ready to go!

 

Tips for achieving stunning results

  • As you prep your slides and structure your presentation, think strategically about how your PowerPoint slides will visually engage your audience and support your talking points, without duplicating you plan to say.
  • Please introduce yourself with a video of yourself, then switch to showing just the slides. If you are unable to use a video to introduce yourself, include a professional picture of yourself on your introductory slide.
  • PowerPoint will automatically detect any connected audio and video feeds, whether you’re using your computer’s built-in devices or an external webcam or microphone that you’ve plugged into your USB ports. Simply toggle the automatically detected audio and video sources to chose the media inputs you want to capture.
  • Have front lighting (do not sit with a window behind you).
  • Wear non-distracting clothing. Keep the background as neutral as possible to reduce distractions.
  • Find a room that is quiet and does not have a lot of background noise. Smaller rooms capture sound better than larger ones.

 

Do you prefer your own recording software?

Use it, just make sure that results comply with 16:9 and mp4 format requirements. Some popular software includes:

  • OBS studio – see tutorial
  • StreamYard – a very high-quality video conferencing platform that allows the speaker to record voice and screen and download their video file. You can log in to the platform by using the gmail account: 2020cinc@gmail.com, password: CINC2020. Please do not make any change to the account settings, be aware it is a shared account for all the CinC presenters.

Upload video

Load and check your presentation in the dedicated folder on the PC connected to the projector.

There will also be a local person available to provide technical assistance.

Be live to discuss

While online presentations will be video recorded (with the only exception of the oral
presentations of the four finalists in the YIA competition), online speakers are
required to be live to answer the 5 minutes Q&A session at the end of their recorded
presentation.
To this aim, speakers have to connect 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.
A staff will provide technical assistance for the connection.
We will soon give you updates on the platform that we will use on the day of your speech.
Meanwhile, to make sure that everything will work that day, we ask you to check:
● Your connection, which must have an upload greater than 3 MB
● The operation of your microphone
● The functioning of your webcam
