All presenters will be required to submit a pre-recorded video of their presentation, to be played back during a live Zoom session. Presenters must plan to be available for a live Q&A directly following their video playback.
Videos will also be posted on the CONFlux virtual platform throughout the conference for asynchronous viewing.

It is highly recommended to submit presentation slides in addition to the video, which will be posted on the CONFlux platform. We recommend that all presentation types use PowerPoint slides for their video presentation, including posters. Poster presenters may plan to include additional slides for the discussion period.
Presenters will have the opportunity to share their slides during the Q&A/discussion portion of the session.
The video submission deadline is AUGUST 9, 2021. You will receive a submission URL by July 27 where you can upload your prepared materials.
IUS will have networking & discussion rooms available within Gather.Town for presenters to further discuss their work outside of the presentation times.
These can be used for your slides or as a background during your presentation if you choose.
