Author Video Instructions

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, DASC 2020 has been moved to a fully virtual conference. We have opted for a format where each contributed presentation will take the form of a video, available during the original dates of the conference and on-demand after the conference concludes.

We request you to prepare and upload a video of your presentation, comprised of a brief introduction with webcam, if desired, followed by voice over slides for your presentation. Virtual presentation be considered as a replacement of your attendance at the conference, and is a requirement for your paper to remain in IEEE Xplore. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below). Please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files.

Authors will have the option to present their work Live or On-Demand. All authors no matter what format they pick should submit a pre-recorded presentation by the deadline of September 11th. If you chose to present live the pre-recording will only be used as in case of a No-Show or technical difficulty. At least one author for each paper must attend their designated session to participate in Q&A. Please complete the below survey by August 14th to choose your presentation format.


Our recommended approach to record a compatible video from content displayed on your computer screen and voice recorded via the computer microphone, is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries:
