Website for pre-recorded video upload is open!

MED 2020 recommended option for contributed paper presentation takes the form of a pre-recorded video, which we will make available to conference attendees. Organizing committee request authors to prepare and upload by August 20, 2020, 23:59:59 PST:

  1. A video of your presentation. This will be considered as a replacement of your attendance at the conference. Please do not try to upload powerpoint or PDF files.
  2. A release form which grants us the permission to host the presentation video on line to be accessed by virtual conference attendees, together with other requirements from the IEEE as stipulated in the release form.
Please use the following guidelines for preparing your video.
  • Duration: 12 minutes
  • File size limit: 50MB file
  • File format: .mp4
  • Minimum height: 480 pixels
  • Aspect ratio: 16:9
Please note the above specifications will be checked at the time of submission and files not meeting them will be prevented from being uploaded.

Please start early: given that the resulting video files will be very large, they might need a long time to transfer, and you might not be able to upload them in time if you start late.
We hope to make MED 2020 a success despite the difficult situation we find ourselves in, and this unusual conference format. We thank you for your cooperation in this endeavor.
