Send the recording (or a link to the file) to Megha Puthucode (
Use the following filename structure: Your Session_DayX_Your Surname, where X is the day of your talk. Example: DomePlenary_Day23Oct_Caltabiano, or S10_Day26Oct_Caltabiano
- File format: please save your recording as .mp4
- Resolution: video should ideally be on 1080p
- Orientation of the recording: landscape

Few tips for the recording
- Find a quiet place to do your recording.
- Avoid times of day with too many interruptions
- Use a space without loud background noise
- Make sure the room has good lighting
- Don’t sit in front of a window
- Turn on a few lights to keep shot well lit, not dark
- Make a short test recording
- You may want to use Zoom or Teams to record your talk, where you can also share your slides during the recording; MS PowerPoint is also an alternative
- You’ll need a webcam and microphone
- Review the test recording for sound quality, good lighting
- Use Landscape, not Portrait
- If using phone or tablet, rotate device to record in landscape mode, rather than portrait. This is much better for viewing.
Virtual oral presenters should be available for live Q&A in the Session where your talk is being presented. The WCRP Open Science Conference will be a fully hybrid and access to the Zoom sessions requires that every participant is registered to the WCRP Open Science Conference to access the hybrid platform.
