Virtual Presenters

You are invited to submit your virtual presentation in keeping with the IABL 2017 Submission Guidelines. All virtual presentations will be delivered by presenters via Skype and will be projected to both our IABL face-to-face audience as well as our virtual delegates. Each virtual presentation consists of the following three elements:

  1. Skype presentation followed by a Q&A chat with audience
  2. Pre-recorded video (backup presentation)
  3. Optional online discussion through YouTube channel

Virtual presenters are invited to submit their proposal using the same guidelines as face-to-face presenters. Virtual presenters can choose from the following three categories: long paper, short paper, and industry showcases/practitioners presentation. All virtual sessions are going to be moderated by a session chair to ensure optimal interaction between the virtual presenter and the audience.
