For the authors of submitted papers, if you still agree to participate, you will receive instructions to invite you to record in advance from your office or your home, a 20-min video using a very easy tool which can mix automatically your PowerPoint slides and your accompanying verbal and visual presentation in a split-screen format. We will collect all of these presentations and organize a schedule for the attendees to view them. Your presentation will be made available a few days before the beginning of the virtual event for all of the attendees to view and study – allowing even more dissemination of your work than the physical conference.
From Monday 19th to Thursday 22nd October 2020, the live virtual event will be accessible to registered participants only. We are including all of the activities typical of an in-person conference, including vendor sessions, plenary speakers, committee meetings, and research presentations. Sessions will have minimal overlap, allowing broad participation by all attendees.
To submit an abstract:
If you have already submitted a paper for the physical event (postponed to 2021), you don’t need to submit again for the virtual event 2020. But just confirm your participation, pay your fee to the virtual event and record your presentation (see instructions below).
Submission is now open to new contributors. You can submit an abstract with the form among these topics:
• Surface and volumetric measurements
• High and ultra-high speed
• In-situ and small scale measurements
• Uncertainty quantification
• Algorithms and Computational techniques
• Identification and Inverses methods
• Educational uses for full field measurements, Standardization, Best Practices.
Please use the appropriate template to prepare your submission (download one of the following zip files):
Your abstract must not exceed two pages. No conference paper will be asked even for accepted abstracts.
Convert your abstract in a .pdf file and submit it through the form. The payment is not mandatory at this step and can be paid later (but before the virtual event).
How to record your presentation:
IMPORTANT: You will receive instructions and login access on your e-mail address to allow you to record your presentation.
In order to record and transfer your presentation, you need to download and install a small software downloadable here.
Note that the e-Slides software is currently available for Windows only in both English and French (a version for Apple will be developed later this year). If your computer is under iOS, please ask a colleague to get a PC ready to record your video, or use Bootcamp to boot on the Windows partition.
Event identifier: IDICS2020
Your speaker login is: your e-mail address
Your speaker password is: the reference attached to your submission (on the confirmation message you should received after your submission).
Prepare your Powerpoint presentation as you would do it for a physical conference. Keep in mind that your presentation must not exceed 20 minutes, so please don’t add too many slides! Follow the instructions to prepare your recording. Don’t worry about the detailed schedule which might be modified until the conference.
The deadline to transfer your presentation is September, 30th 2020 at 5:00 pm (US-Eastern Time). After a short review, we will post all the videos available online, one week before the virtual conference, to let the registered participants watch them before the beginning of the event.
How to prepare for the discussion:
The live general sessions will allow attendees to discuss the presentations with the authors through a video chat room. You will soon be assigned to a session, based on general topic areas, where every author will recap their work (3-5 minutes) and participate in a dedicated 10 minute discussion. The chat room sessions will be recorded and available online after the event (for registered participants only).
We think it will be a great opportunity for you to highlight your work and get substantive feedback in a format that makes broad participation possible.
