Oral Presentations


If you have an oral presentation at our conference, please do read the following instructions carefully:


Presentation format

You are invited you to present your 10 minute oral TT21 contribution in a live stream. However, if your internet connectivity is too slow or not stable enough to allow for a smooth live transmission, please do send us your pre-recorded presentation.
Therefore, please check your internet upload capacity from the computer and place where you are going to attend the conference through www.speedof.me . If your upload speed is below 3 Mbps, you should pre-record your presentation. If you are using a wireless internet access, you may increase your upload speed by using a cable connection to your router.

  • When presenting live, you should be able to share your computer screen and use e.g. PowerPoint or a stand-alone format for presentation.
  • If you pre-register your presentation, do upload your video as .wmv or .mp4 file via our upload portal.
Some further instructions for on-line presentation can be found here: PDF.
