VLDB 2024: Information for Research and Industry Paper Presenters
Each paper has 14 minutes for presentations and 3 minutes for questions and answers.
VLDB 2024 runs as a hybrid event, and each session is one of the following delivery types:
|in-person presenter:||laptop provided||n/a||n/a|
|remote presenter:||own laptop|
|presentation upload:||required, see below||required, see below||n/a|
|pre-recorded video:||required, see below||required, see below||n/a|
This means that all presentations, except for a few dedicated in-person sessions, will be streamed online into the conference platform. We plan that all presentations are given live - either in-person here in Sydney or via Zoom online.
See the Program Structure page for a detailed schedule of your presentation time slot. You can see the type of each slot by using the "Toggle Session Type" button.
In-Person Presenter (Session Type Hybrid)
Each room has a lectern and a microphone for the speakers, and VLDB 2024 will provide a dedicated presentation laptop onto which each presentation will be uploaded.
This presentation laptop runs Windows and supports both Powerpoint and PDF (updated, 25 Aug).
(*) Please note that on the presentation laptops in the conference venue, you will see the presenter view for PPTX, while PDF slides are only displayed on the projected screen - as this is not ideal, PPTX format is strongly suggested.
Please follow the instructions in the "Upload of Presentation Slides" section below -- the upload should happen before the conference.
Please take the time and come to your session during the coffee break to meet your session chair who may provide you with additional instructions.
If you need update your slides on-site, you can do so up-to 2 hours before the session in the "speaker preparation room".
Remote Presenter (Session Types Online-Only and Hybrid)
Remote presenters who attend VLDB 2024 online will be send a link to their Zoom session. Please be aware of the timezone differences. All session are shown in the program in Sydney local time. It is the responsibility of the presenter to be online in their assigned session at the scheduled time.
Please login to your Zoom meeting 15 mins prior, but make sure you are muted and your camera switched off as you might login during someone else’s presentation. As a remote presenter, you will need to screen share your presentation via Zoom. Please ensure before joining the session that you enabled screen sharing for Zoom (important security setting on macOS). Please also read this Remote Presenter Guide for some helpful tips about your local setup, positioning and lighting, and our instructions regarding the virtual conference platform from DelegateConnect / Joyn also includes some tips for online presenters.
Feel free to use one of the provided VLDB 2024 Zoom backgrounds for your presentation (and your pre-recording).
Upload of Presentation Slides
In order to make the presentation available on the presenter laptop and the online platform, please prepare a PowerPoint slide deck (or alternatively a PDF file), name it after your CMT paper ID (PaperType_[Paper ID].pptx (or PaperType_[Paper ID].pdf) - cf. the video upload instructions for the naming scheme), and then upload your presentation slides by latest September 3rd, 2024 to: https://bit.ly/VLDB2024
Please follow the instructions send by email. If you have questions, please contact our digital artefact chair, André van Renssen (andre.vanrenssen <AT> sydney.edu.au).
We expect that all authors give their presentations live - either in-person here in Sydney or via Zoom online. In case of technical problems or an absent presenter, the pre-recorded video will be played instead. For this reason, every presenter, whether scheduled in-person or online, is required to upload a pre-recorded video of their talk as a fallback in case of problems. Please follow the instructions for video preparation and then upload your file using the video upload instructions.
Feel free to use one of the provided VLDB 2024 Zoom backgrounds for the speaker view of your pre-recording.
The pre-recorded video should a 720p (1280x720 pixels) or 1080p (1920x1080 pixels) MP4 video with an aspect ratio of 16:9, and 14 minutes long. For the duration of workshop paper recordings, please contact the corresponding workshop chairs.
Further details can be found on our instructions for video preparation.
Please note that we will make the pre-recorded videos available online also after your talk. If you do not consent to this, or have any other further questions, please contact our digital artefact chair, André van Renssen (andre.vanrenssen <AT> sydney.edu.au) when uploading your video.
Network access for in-person presenters
Shared WiFi is available in all rooms. Its bandwidth may fluctuate depending on the number of people using it. Do not depend on the WiFi to stream video or run a demo from a remote server - rather embed everything into your uploaded slide deck, and avoid using the WiFi during your presentation.
