Video abstracts:

Introduce your research in your own words by including a video of your abstract presentation.  The Videos will be available on the conference website and participants will be able to watch your presentation at the conference and after the conference.

Did you know a video abstract can increase the numbers who read your research by as much as ten times?


What is a video abstract?

A video abstract lets you introduce readers to your article in your own words, telling others why they should read your research.

These short videos (five minutes or less) are published alongside the text abstract on the conference website and are an increasingly popular way of getting others to engage with published research, increasing the visibility of your work.

Easy to share via social media, include in an email, or link to from a web page, they can be a quick and easy way to tell others your research story, and you can send us yours as soon as your paper has been accepted for publication.


What to think about before you start

•       Make it short: five minutes or less is perfect. Writing out a script (even just bullet points) in advance can help you with this.

•       Be clear: tell others the purpose of your research, what methodology you used, what you found and its implications. Make people want to find out more.

•       Be accessible: video abstracts can be a great way to engage people outside your field, so use clear language and aim to be succinct.

•       Use images: pictures speak a thousand words so include images, charts, tables – anything that helps you explain the focus of your article – if you can.

•       Be heard: make sure your audio is clear, so others can easily hear you. Try and pick somewhere quiet to film, as background noise can be distracting.

•       Make it readable: if you’re using presentation slides with text or images on them, make sure there’s not too much on the slide, so others can easily read them while still listening to you talk.


What equipment you need

Most institutions will have digital recording devices which you should be able to use. Alternatively, recording on a tablet or webcam can be just as effective. If you have access to one, a plug-in microphone will give you better sound quality.


Technical specifications

We do ask for (and check) all video abstracts for quality, to ensure they are watchable. Below are our technical specifications:

•       Format: .mov, .mpg, or .mp4

•       Maximum file size: 300 MB

•       Aspect ratio: 16:9, square pixels, deinterlaced (landscape format is best)

•       Frame size: a minimum of 640 × 360 pixels

Please include a written transcript (a written version of the material you have presented) when sending in your file. This is to ensure that your video is accessible to all.


How to send us your video abstract

Now you’ve filmed your video, how do you submit it?

1      You can send us your video via the conference MobiApp.  You will find a a file transfer website hosted by ISCN, which allows you to transfer files of up to 2GB. Contact the ISCN production editor Dr Freddys Garcia ( when you are ready and we’ll send you the details.

2      You’ll need to sign a Recording Rights Agreement, so we can publish your video abstract on the Conference website (we will email this to you when you get in touch with your video abstract). Please sign it and email it back as soon as possible, as we can’t upload your video without it.

3      Don’t forget your transcript (this can be any editable file format, such as Word).
