Submissions BEFORE the Congress

  • Maximum 3 (three) PowerPoint slides are allowed. An additional title slide is permitted if necessary.

  • Total duration of your pre-recorded presentation must not exceed 3 (three) minutes. Presentations exceeding this time but 30 seconds will not be able to upload their presentation and will be shortened at the end of the presentation to ensure we keep to time.

  • 2 (two) minutes discussion is allocated to each OC. We expect this to be at the end of the talk. Chairs, at their discretion, may save discussion till all presentations have been delivered.  

  • You are requested to attend the entire session to answer questions and to participate in any discussion, if relevant.

  • OC presenters must upload an .MP4 file only containing your pre-recorded talk and slides (maximum file size: 1.5GB).

  • Download ISUOG’s OC template hereYou can use your own template if preferred.

  • You will still need to prepare PowerPoint slides and then record yourself presenting these slides. Two suggestions on how to do this are below:

  • Audio recording (narration): Use the ‘Record Slide Show’ option within PowerPoint to record your audio presentation as you go through your slides. You will need to save the final file as mp4 and upload this to our speaker management portal (eOrganiser). You can find detailed instructions on how to do this here.

  • Video recording: Use Zoom to record yourself on camera giving your presentation with your slides shown in your ‘shared screen’. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this here.

  • Recommendation: rehearse giving your presentation and time yourself ahead of capturing the final recording. Make sure you only upload the final presentation you are happy to share with our audience.


  • Go to and log in using the details emailed to you by eOrganiser.

  • Select your presentation and upload one .mp4 file.

  • You can re-upload your presentation as many times as you like up until and including the submission deadline of 2 October 2020. After this date no more changes can be made.
