Information for the preparation of your presentation

Preparation of your presentation
Please prepare your presentation in a 16:9 format in PowerPoint. If applicable, please state any potential conflict of interest on the first or last slide of your presentation.

Important note about Loom
Loom has installed an update that limits the video length for free users to 5 minutes. For the moment, you can use the 14-day trial period for Business to record your presentation:
Please log in on the Loom website and follow this link: https://www.loom.com/account-settings#billing
There you click on "Free Trial", and then your account will be upgraded to the Business version for 14 days. This removes the time limit and you can record in 1080p (no further costs or obligations apply.)

Preparation of your presentation

  1. Please prepare your presentation slides in the usual way via PowerPoint in 16:9 (landscape) format and in English language. If applicable, please indicate on the first or last slide of your presentation your potential conflict(s) of interest. Please submit your presentation by 14th February at the latest. Since all of the presentations have to be checked by our technicians, it is important to meet the deadlines.
  2. Please try to integrate your webcam during the recording so that your picture is above your presentation when discussing the recording. Alternatively, you can also include an image of you in the presentation so that you are visible on all slides if possible.

Selection of the program for recording

You are free to choose the program for recording your contribution. We recommend Microsoft PowerPoint from 2019 or Office 365 for recording your contribution with a webcam, which works on Mac or Windows. You can find an instructional video for this under the following link:
> To the tutorial

In older versions of Microsoft PowerPoint, only sound can be recorded. You can find instructions for this under the following link:
> Click here for sound only recording

In addition, the following services can be used:

OBS saves your presentation locally on your computer. It is an open source recording tool. Since the tool can also be used for live streaming, the handling is a bit more complicated. However, it is worth installing it if you need to record lectures more often in the future.

> To download OBS

LOOM stores your recording(s) on servers in the cloud. With this program you can record lectures up to 5 minutes for free (perfect for ePoster lectures with speaking time up to 5min). However, a one-time 14-day trial version can be used to create unlimited videos (without automatic subscription). For Windows and Mac.

Note: The activation page is somewhat hidden. Just follow this link:

Mac users can record their contribution using QuickTime Player. However, no webcam can be integrated here.

Notes on recording:
- Test microphone and webcam settings before recording
- If possible, do the recording in daylight or another suitable light source
- Avoid ambient noise; remove sources of interference (telephone, pets, etc.)
- recording in small / non-empty rooms (carpet has a positive influence on the sound quality)
- Please enter your name in the footer of your presentation ("Insert"> "Header and Footer").
