Video is an increasingly powerful medium for generating reader engagement. To capitalize on this potential, we are encouraging authors to submit video

Video Formats

Demonstration: A 3 minutes video demonstrating a technique, experiment or treatment protocol (nonpromotional)

How to Create a Video

  • Presentation: Position / focus the video camera such that it records you at approximately waist level; no more, no less. We will crop it as necessary.
  • Delivery: Speak clearly, adequate volume (not shouting, but strong voice), and make good eye contact with the camera. If possible, memorize what you're saying or be able to speak off the cuff in a professional manner. (Note: Record for at least 5 seconds – looking into the camera – before and after you speak.)
  • Filming: Video should be shot against a white or single-color background if possible (you should have a white / unicolor wall somewhere in your office). If the camera is not stationary (tripod; recommended), the camera operator must maintain a still position. Most cameras have image stabilization, which should minimize issues. (Note: Record a few tests to ensure adequate lighting.)
  • General Video Specs: Make sure to record in high-definition video (1920 x 1080); if you have an HD camera and it's set to shoot video at 1080p, you'll be fine.

How to Send It to Us

1. First submit your summary on the scientific platform, selecting the format "Abstract - for video". This will allow us to publish your abstract in the conference's book, it must respect the template.

2. Saving Your Video: To extract the video, connect the camera to your computer and, using your camera's software (which you should have installed on the computer), save the file as an .MP4, .MPEG, .AVI or .MOV file (your software may have any or all of these options, depending on whether you have a Mac or PC, etc.).

3. Sending It to Us by specifying the title used when submitting your abstract via at
