General information and Technology requirements
For the video streaming of our conference, we'll use ZOOM Software. You will find all the links and login data of our conference streams via the live-event website. Entering the live-event website is only possible for registered participants. You'll receive your login data by the beginning of the conference week.
At the live-event website, you'll choose where you want to join.
We recommend to download the zoom client to join the event via your destinations zoom website. Joining the meeting also works via web browser. Sometimes some errors occur using a special web browser, if you have no experience so far, try out if it works here.
To learn more about how to join a zoom meeting we recommend the firms video introduction here.
You will need to share your screen for live presentations, how this is going, you'll learn here.
If you can't present live due to technical restrictions for e.g. low internet connection, it will be possible to send us a recorded presentation (for example recorded ppt.) as well, we'll put it online in the session where it's needed.
Further instructions for virtual presentations
- Avoid bright lights and windows behind you
- Good light in front of you (on your face) will provide for a better image
- Please mute your microphone while listening!
- Test your technical settings before the conference (we will provide a linke here soon)
- To present you'll need to share your screen (virtual participation); for physical presentation we'll need your presentation a day before the conference.
Make sure your slides are uncluttered, clear and visible!
Use a consistent design and format for all slides with as little continuous text as possible on the slides (exceptions: definitions, questions, hypotheses) but write complete thoughts.
- Use informative titles and only one core message per slide, if possible
- Use bolded, sans serif font (e.g. Arial, Helvetica, Tahoma)
- Font size: for content text use 28 or 32 pt. (not smaller than 24 pt.); for titles use 32 to 40 pt., small fonts are okay for footnotes
- Make text and lines as big or thick as practical
- Have simple, high-contrast, consistent colour schemes
- Avoid red-green colour combinations: If must use red, use yellowish red (R=255 / G=82 / B=0) instead of pure red; avoid red characters / lines on dark background
- Keep graphs and tables simple, and make sure they are legible and appropriately labelled
- Put your references at the end of your presentation.
Pictures, Graphics and Logos:
- Formats: JPGs, PNGs, GIFs
- Usually a resolution of 1000 - 1500 pixels width is sufficient for photos; graphics with sharp details should measure about 2000 pixels width (These specifications apply to images that are placed over the entire surface)
- For smaller pictures the number of pixels is reduced accordingly
Video and Audio:
As the quality of videos in live streaming events is not appropriate, we ask you to avoid using videos in your presentation.
