Presentation Guidelines



Prerecorded presentations are assembled in sessions according to their assigned track in the virtual conference website, and are available for participants to view on demand beginning Monday, November 2. Participants will receive an email with login details for accessing the conference site. Once logged in participants will access the presentations by clicking on a link to view the video, and will return at the scheduled time to participate in the live Q&A session with the speakers on Zoom.

All presenters are required to be virtually present for their scheduled Q&A session in order to answer questions about their presentation and participate in the discussion. Participants will be able to use a Q&A feature to ask questions. The session’s moderator will then select a few questions, and will read them to the presenters, who will be able to answer verbally during the session. Unless otherwise advised by participants, all the sessions will be fully recorded and made available for watching online, only to those who have registered, during the conference (November 4-6, 2020) and the month after.  



Download the instructions for prerecording your presentation, uploading your video, and forwarding the links to the ATMAE office for posting on the conference website.
