Information for Presenter

Each paper accepted to APICS 2022 must be presented by the registered co-author during the online conference. Each paper will be given 15 – 20 minutes (10 minutes for presentation + 5-10 minutes for Q&A). The video conferencing platform chosen by APICS 2022 is Zoom. It is preferred that presentations are given live in the virtual conference room. If the presenter’s Internet connection quality is not sufficiently good to run a live presentation, a pre-recorded video of the talk must be played, please read our guide below to prepare the video. Please connect to your session room in Zoom at least five minutes before the start of the session. Once in the virtual room, the session host will change your role from “participant” to “co-host”, so that you will be able to activate your microphone and camera when it’s your turn to present. Please keep your microphone muted whenever other speakers are presenting or a video presentation is being played. In any case, the speaker is required to participate live in the Q&A session to be held immediately after the presentation. Questions from the audience will be asked through the Zoom Q&A Chat and will be read out by the session chair. Speakers are also required to upload a pre-recorded video of their paper presentation. These are requirements for accepted papers to be submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Instructions for Recording Presentation

Many presentation software allows recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files.

The presentation recording should:

  • Be 10-minute in length
  • Set for HD format (1280 x 720 or other “720p” setting)
  • Use simple, clear and large (24+) fonts
  • Saved as MPEG-4 (.mp4) file using the paper ID from easychair or i-kaigi and presenter last name as the file name. For example: “1221_Fiddin”.

Please be sure to review your recorded presentation prior to submission. Once you are happy with the final product, then please upload it here : APICS Upload Presentation Video

Our recommended approach to record a compatible video from content displayed on your computer screen and voice recorded via the computer microphone, is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries.
