Instructions for Presenters
Deadline to submit recorded presentations: September 15, 2023 (11:59pm Pacific Time)
Submit the link to your presentation here: https://bit.ly/2023-ERSP-Video-Submission
All presentations will be pre-recorded and played from video at the conference. Presenters will be required to record and submit a 10 minute (long presentations) or 5 minute (lightning talks) video presentation by September 15. Your video must meet the following requirements:
It must be uploaded to YouTube. Please make sure your video is either public or unlisted (i.e. we will be able to see it but no one else will be unless you give them the link), but NOT private.
It must be captioned with subtitles. Do not rely on the automatically generated subtitles. Click the link for more information about how to caption your video on YouTube. Remember to leave space at the bottom of your slides/video for these captions.
It must be no longer than the time limits posted above.
You may use any method you like to create your videos. Two popular methods are to use Zoom or PowerPoint. There are countless resources and videos online about how to record presentations using either of these methods, but if you are having trouble, feel free to reach out.
Submit Your Work
We invite all students who have participated in ERSP at any site in any cohort to submit their ERSP poster for presentation at the National Virtual Conference. At least one member of the research team must be available to attend the full conference to interact with the audience.
To submit a poster to be considered for presentation, please prepare the following materials:
A 250-word (<2000 characters) abstract
A PDF of your poster
Submissions will be reviewed for clarity, scope, and quality of the research.
Posters that are accepted for presentation will be accepted as one of the following presentation types:
Long format talks: Presenters will have a 15 minute slot to present and discuss their work. They will pre-record a 10-minute video presentation and have 5 minutes to interact with the audience. Long format talks will be given in a single track session.
Lightning talks: Presenters will have minutes to present their work. They will pre-record a 3 minute lightning talk and have time for 5 minutes of interaction with the audience. Lightning talks will be given in parallel tracks.
