The video should depict your technology in action and we encourage researchers to explain in the video a) the motivation for their work, b) the specific problem being addressed, and c) the demonstrated solution to the problem. Note that the video should be self-explaining, no in-person explanation of the videos should be necessary at the conference. We highly encourage videos to either include an audio track and discourage the use of background audio or music. If you feel uncomfortable recording your own voice, check the web for a text-to-speech tool to generate your audio commentary. The video should include a title slide with the title of the work, authors, affiliations, etc. at the start of the video. A submitted video should have a maximum length of 5 minutes and should not be larger than 100 MB. We recommend using MP4 format with H.264 codec and a resolution of 1280 x 720 px, at 24 to 30 frames/s. Most video production systems can encode in this format and most video applications are able to play it. If you use a different codec, you risk that reviewers might not be able to view the video clip and you will need to re-encode the video clip for the conference proceeding USB. The video should play in the VLC media player version 3.0 (freely available at https://www.videolan.org/vlc
) without additional software, codecs or settings.
