ICESIT 2021 requires a bit extra preparation on your presentation before, during, and after the conference. The success of the conference depends on you:

Before the Conference:

•  Please prepare an 10-15min video of your paper, any way you can. There are no formal constraints on what your video should be like. For example, you could create an illustrative video, or a more educational video, or simply a recording of your slide presentation (e.g., using screen capture or PowerPoint slide recorder).

•  Be sure the video is of high (technical) quality. Ideally, the video should have:

•  At least 1080p (or 4K) resolution
•  At least 192kbit of mpeg 3 sound
•  Clearly legible text, slides, images, and graphics (mind your image resolution and aspect ratio and keep in mind that participants might watch your video on a small screen)
•  We recommend at most 5 lines of text / 5 bullet points per slide
•   Be sure your voice is audible, not too soft, not over modulated (distorted), and the sound level is homogeneous throughout the video.

•   Prepare a 1-slide teaser pitch telling people your key contribution. This pitch is hold as part of the live conference.
•   Send your video and teaser slide to email: icesit@icesit.org. Name your files by Paper Code Number, first author surname, and the first five words of your paper title. Example: A001 Smith Exploring Students Perceptions of Software.mp4
•   (recommended) You may also prepare a slide deck of your presentation and upload them as well.
•   Deadline for your video: November 8, 2021, anywhere on earth
•   After you received your discussant assignment by email for a similar paper in your assigned session, please read their paper, watch their video, and browse their slides and prepare 3-5 questions for the presentation you discuss. The questions can be anything you consider insightful and would spark participant discussion, clarifications, or perhaps a comment on your take on some contribution.
•   Familiarize yourself with the virtual conference software.
•   Familiarize yourself with the conference code of conduct.

During the Conference:

•   At the time of your scheduled presentation, please join the session channel through the link that will be provided to you.
•   As the session chair displays your 1-slide teaser, please provide a brief 2-3min verbal summary of your work.
•   Mind that you will be responsible for presenting your screen.
•   The session chair will then invite the discussant. If this is you, ask your questions or comments and help us ignite the discussion.
•   We may take video and/or picture recordings of sessions for conference and session summaries and/or marketing.

After the Conference:

•   You continue to have access to proceedings for a limited time at the discretion of the publisher.
