Requirements for Chairs

  • The conference should have a video presentation chair who serves as a single point of contact, and coordinates with all individual venue chairs (papers, LBWs, etc).
  • Conferences should use the PCS and QOALA workflow for video and metadata collection.
  • Video specifications (mp4, 1080/720p, 200mb, srt subtitles)
  • Deadline for video submission should be at least 2 weeks before date videos need to be live (or longer for larger conferences).
  • Chairs can specify a precise date/time to make the videos public on YouTube links subject to the previous deadline requirements.
