Speaker Info

Ground Rules

Talks must be technical in nature; no product, service or sales pitches. It is OK to show examples, lessons learned or results gleaned from specific products or services, though.

Speakers must submit their draft slides by Nov. 2nd for content verification and make the changes asked by the committee for the final version.

Speakers must be present during their sessions to answer the questions. They should also attempt to answer all the questions posted in the forum.

Attending the event is free of charge, but everybody including the speakers must register.

Instructions for Presentation Recordings and Slides

The presentation recordings and slides will be accessible only to the registered attendees until Dec. 15th, then after that date they will be released publicly.

What to Submit

  • Presentation recording (mp4, mandatory)
  • The pdf version of slides (pdf, mandatory)
  • The PowerPoint slides with narration (pptx, strongly recommended for logistical needs)

Submission Format

  • The presentation recording must be in mp4 format. During the introductory slide a head-shot video can be used, but it is recommended to turn off the camera for the remainder of the presentation to preserve slide quality.
  • Video resolution must be at least 1080p (and the aspect ratio must be 16:9).
  • One minute at the end of the allocated talk time must be reserved for the audience to ask questions in the forum.
  • Subtitles are optional. If they are available, they must be accurate and included as a separate track in the mp4 file, not burned-in.

How to Prepare

Slide Show with Narration and Timings in PowerPoint (Strongly Recommended)

Instructions for making an mp4 recording from a PowerPoint presentation are here.

Screen Recording Tools

There are a variety of (free/paid) screen recording tools for both mac and win systems. Both platforms also have built-in software for screen recording (mac/win).

Where to Submit

To be provided in the email to the speakers.

Discussion/Q&A Forums

Each session will have an asynchronous forum to accommodate the participants from different time zones. Participants will be able to post questions/comments for any talk in that session during the entire mhv/2020 week and speakers are expected to answer them during the week.
