IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications
31 August-3 September 2020 // Virtual Conference

Pre-Recorded Presentation

Email to authors

10th August 2020

We hope you are looking forward to PIMRC’20 being hosted from London UK, which is only a few weeks away.

As previously announced all accepted papers at PIMRC’20 will be required to provide an Oral Presentation. With PIMRC’20 being a virtual conference this year we, therefore, require each paper to submit a pre-recorded presentation.

In order to arrange logistics of the virtual platform we also require each paper to list the relevant presenter for your paper.

Both of these tasks are to be undertaken in EDAS.

Please take care to read the requirements and details for preparing the presentation video for your paper. These are accompanied by a video tutorial on recording your presentation using Zoom and can be found on the PIMRC’20 website. 

The deadline for uploading the presentation and listing the presenter who will attend the live session is: 17th August.

Finally, please do keep an eye on the PIMRC’20 website where we have now announced the full programme in including Keynotes, panels and special sessions.

See you at PIMRC’20 from London.

Many thanks,

Presenting at PIMRC 2020

To ensure PIMRC 2020 runs smoothly while maintaining levels of interactivity we will be running technical sessions as a blend of live & pre-recorded content. Each Presenter will be required to upload a pre-recorded video of their presentation by the 17th August. Presenters will be expected to attend their allocated live-session where their pre-recorded video will be shown (If the presenter wishes they may present live). Following each presentation, a live Q&A will take place. Attendees will be requested to attend their session 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to test their microphone level and meet the session chair.

Preparing your Pre-Recorded Presentation

  • A link will be sent to registered Authors/Presenters to upload their pre-recorded presentation from the 10th August.
  • Pre-recorded presentations should be recorded at a maximum of 14 minutes, this duration will allow for 4 minutes of live questions.
  • We request pre-recorded presentations are a file size of approximately 150 MB and must be less the 200mb.
  • Presentation videos must be in MP4 format – please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files.
  • All papers (whether you wish to present live or not) must submit a pre-recorded presentation by the 17th August and attend their live Q&A, failure to do so will be considered as a no-show, and be subject to ComSoc rules in which IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore).

Video Requirements

  • Duration: 12-14 minutes
  • File size: 150 MB (preferred),  200 MB (maximum)
  • Dimensions: Minimum height 480 pixels
  • Suggested Aspect ratio: 16:9
  • Videos cannot have any sort of watermark
  • Ensure your webcam image does not overlap any significant portion of the presentation.
  • Audio must be clear (make sure there is no noise around you, or use headphones with a microphone to ensure a better audio quality)

It is suggested that you record your presentation using a method that captures both your slides, and yourself presenting.

The following link from IEEEtv gives a tutorial on how to record your presentation using the Zoom client.
