Please utilize this resources page for information regarding pre-recording your abstract presentation for the FEFLOW International User Conference 2021.
Platform – The virtual platform that we will be using is called HeySummit. To accommodate the virtual platform, all user presentations will be pre-recorded. We ask that during your presentation you keep the speaker view on so your audience can see you.
Duration of Presentations – User presentations will be 15 minutes in length. To accommodate everyone’s presentation and stay on schedule, we need all recorded presentations to be exactly this long (within 2-3 minutes). We will not provide editing services should your recording surpass 15 minutes; instead, you will be asked to re-record.
Practice presenting 2-3 times before your live presentation. Consider having a few friends log on to help you with the feeling of a virtual audience. Practicing in advance will help eliminate nerves, help you manage your time to ensure you are not running over your time slot, and will help ensure you do not speak too fast or too slow.
Our goal is to make pre-recording your session both as simple and as customizable to you as possible. You are doing our attendees a great service by staying with us through this change in circumstances, and we greatly appreciate your support and participation. You are free to use any recording option (Zoom, PowerPoint, Skype, Microsoft Teams, among others). See other sections of this page for resources about several of these tools. Please contact us if you have questions on recording.
There are many recording systems to choose from. Regardless of which system you use, we strongly recommend that you include a ‘speaker view’ of yourself in the recording along with your slides. This will help your audience put a face to the voice and get more of an authentic conference presentation experience.
Our preferred and most common options:
Save your recording as either an MP4 or Windows media movie file (.mov). The specifications for the video delivery are as follows:
Advanced specs (don’t worry about these unless you’re familiar with advanced settings)
Naming convention should be as follows:
Once your presentation is recorded, you need to edit the beginning and the end so that the video starts with you welcoming your audience and ends just after you finish up your presentation. There are many free pieces of software available to help you with editing. We like to use the free version of ActivePresenter for both screen recording and editing.
Deadline: We ask that you complete and submit your recording no later than Monday, June 14th at 5:00 PM MST. We would love to start reviewing them as early as possible, so we encourage you to submit yours as soon as it is ready.
