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.

Bumper templates and examples
SIGCHI adds a short video bumper in front of all recordings. The bumper asset package contains conference logos, ACM and SIGCHI logos and some data about the conference (name, location, date,…).
As many conferences are using Zoom for remote meetings and webinars, here are a few links that we find useful.
- Importing Webinar Registrants (access control via email addresses).
- Meetings & Webinars (joining & starting, scheduling, settings & control guides with a FAQ section)
- Zoom Video Tutorials
- More Zoom How To Videos
- Join Live Training Webinars. Sign-up for upcoming trainings.
You are required to offer closed captioning for all recorded an live content. Currently, the ACM offers this as Zoom accounts and (in testing) Otter.ai.
For Zoom Meetings, Otter.ai is enabled by default.
For Zoom Webinars, Otter.ai must be pre-scheduled.
For both Meetings and Webinars, you should enable inline captions. We have detailed instructions as it can be tricky otherwise.
