As BRAINS 2021 will be held as a virtual conference, speakers are required to record and submit a video of their talk by September 17. On that day speakers will receive an email, from Whova, containing an online form to submit their video, fill in their bio, and complete their profile.
During the actual presentation on September 27-30 2021, and at the start of every session, the pre-recorded video of the presentation will be played and at least one of the paper’s authors will be online to answer questions later, otherwise, the paper will not be published in the IEEE Xplore.
The pre-recorded video is mandatory, but still, speakers will have the option to present live during the session.
We hardly recommend speakers to check if they are assigned to their proper paper session on the program page and to notify the organizers if you are not the presenter of the paper or won’t be able to be present on that day.
In that case, you should send an email containing all the information (Full name, email, affiliation, country) about the final presenter who will replace your Whova profile account, please note that you won’t be able to access the conference content anymore. Otherwise, the presenter should register for the conference with the participation rate so that both of you can have access.

Instructions for Video Recording
Videos should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides along with audio of the spoken presentation. Optionally videos may contain a shot of the speaker’s head for increased engagement. (This shot should be thumbnail-sized and overlayed on the slide images as shown here.) Many presentation software allows recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files. Please see the notes below for detailed instructions for PowerPoint and KeyNote. If you use a different application, please see the notes under Other Options.
- format 16:9
- resolution 720p
- better to be less than 200MB
- duration depending on your paper type, check above information
- Follow these instructions to add audio (and optionally video) to your slides.
- Follow these instructions to generate a MPEG-4 (.mp4) file from your slides and audio/video.
- Alternatively, you can follow this video tutorial which goes through both of these steps. Also, see this video tutorial if you like.
- Record your screen (and microphone) while giving the presentation.
- As a last resort, and only if you are comfortable directly editing video, you can export your slides as images, record an audio track, and combine the two.
