presenter instructions


  • Virtual presentations are given the same time frame as live presentations – 15 minutes total. This includes 12 minutes for presenting, and three minutes for questions. Therefore, your recording must be 12 minutes or less.

  • You will be required to login to the GeoNiagara 2021 virtual platform during your assigned presentation time, so that you are available for live Q&A directly after your presentation. Login instructions will be posted on this page as soon as they are available.

  • Ensure that your audio is clear, and that your video quality is high. Using a headset or headphones will minimize background noise and is highly recommended.

  • Your recording must be in mp4 or mov format.

  • Presentation slides must be in the GeoNiagara 2021 presentation template as provided. Slides should be the primary visual; you may also choose to have yourself showing in a smaller window on the screen.

  • As long as your presentation is of high quality, you may choose the software used to record.

  • The deadline to upload your pre-recorded presentation is August 31, 2021.
