At the Conference
During each session the pre-recorded presentation will be started by the session chair and is then followed by a live Q&A discussion. Please make sure that you connect to the virtual DATE 2021 platform in time so you are available at the time of your session, and thus presentation, is scheduled to start.
A/V staff ensures that all video files that meet the format requirements and have been uploaded within the given deadline play properly on the virtual DATE 2021 platform.
In case you are holding a live presentation (e.g., for a Monday Tutorial, Friday Workshop or Exhibition Theatre) you may do so by simply sharing your screen in the virtual meeting room. Please adhere to instructions given by session chairs and organisers.
When preparing your AV material, keep the time limit for your presentation in mind (10 minutes at most for technical paper presentations). To make your visual presentation a success, it needs to be well planned to clearly point out the important results of your research. The audience will appreciate your talk only if your material is visible and legible. They will remember your talk far better and read your paper if you can manage to communicate at least two important facts within your presentation timeslot. Please consider that the audience will need at least a minute to understand each technical slide.
The first slide should contain the title of your paper and the author names, your affiliations and your company, university or funding logo (if applicable). This will be the only page where logos are permitted.
Keep your material simple and uncluttered. Program listings and very long equations should be avoided. Tables should be represented graphically, wherever possible. Do not use the valuable space on your slides for large company logos and other elements that do not help in motivation or understanding your work. Duplicates of slides should only be produced in case the same information is needed twice.
The presentation video to be uploaded should meet the following technical requirements:
||max. 3 Mbit/s
||between 1280x720 and 1920x1080 px
||16:9 (landscape format)
||max. 10 minutes
Please limit the file size to less than 1 GB to minimize problems with storage and access speed that can result in a distorted or incomplete presentation.

* You received this information via email with the access data to this platform. Alternatively, you may find the session ID again in the detailed programme on the DATE 2021 website.
**Please make sure you indicate the same information as you did in SoftConf.
Please use high contrast lettering and fonts with a minimum size of 16pt and high contrast layouts like light text on dark colours.
Please make sure that also index expressions are clearly visible and use an appropriate font size.
Colour should be used carefully and colour combinations resulting in a low contrast (e.g. dark blue on black) should be avoided. Be aware that the contrast of your computer monitor may differ from other monitors.
Try to use only colours that convert for black and white printing. The distinction between blue and black for text and thin lines is especially weak. Red filled-in objects (circles, rectangles, etc.) with white text are well-suited for highlighting important text.
