Conference format: The conference will be held on Gather.town, facilitated by Virtual Chair. Each presentation will involve three parts:
1) A 20-minute full talk video, which will be uploaded to YouTube prior to the conference.
2) A live 8-minute short talk, to be presented during the conference.
3) A “poster” to facilitate a short discussion session after each presentation session.
What do authors need to do?
-) Register the paper by July 19. Here you can find the link.
-) Submit the full talk video and the poster by August 6 at this link.
-) Attend the conference (August 16-18). Here is the program.
See also the detailed instruction below for additional information. Information on how to prepare the poster can be found here.
Detailed instructions for authors: Each session will consist of several live 8-minute talks, with limited time for questions. Your 8-minute talk should not be your 20-minute talk at 2.5x speed! Think of this as an advertisement for the audience to go watch the long talk, or to follow up during the discussion time.
Between the sessions there will be a short break and discussion time on our Gather.town venue. During this discussion time, the authors from the previous presentation session should be available for further questions and discussion. Each presenter should submit a “poster” to display for the discussion. “Poster” is in quotes because it doesn’t have to be a full-blown poster (we know that preparing two talks is already quite a bit of work!) — if you like, it can be a slide from your talk that will remind visitors of the key points of the talk and to facilitate discussion.
There will be two invited talks and one social event on our Gather.town venue. Information on the invited talk for APPROX are here!
