Conference Prep: Adolescent Medicine


Thank you for agreeing to speak at the upcoming Adolescent Medicine Conference on May 17-19, 2021. We encourage you to present your talk live on the day of the conference, but you may submit a pre-recorded presentation if you prefer. The information below outlines the workflow for preparing and recording presentations, and key dates by which each activity should be completed. We appreciate the additional effort this implies, and thank you in advance for your support.

The CME team is available to review slides and help find alternatives for copyrighted images. This review and revision process necessitates that we receive slides much earlier than a typical conference. Please submit your slides for review as soon as possible, and no later than indicated.

As you develop your slides, minimize the use of images for which you do not have copyright, permission, creative commons or other license, or that are not in the public domain. Note: some images are not subject to copyright. See these guidelines for more details.

Omit any image that is purely decorative if permission or license is needed. Please provide source information for all images directly on the slide. In the speaker notes, provide information about ownership, copyright status, permission or licensing.
OPTIONAL: The CME team is available to review slides and help find alternatives for copyrighted images. If you would like help with slide images, contact Jay Cowan.There are multiple options for recording your presentation. Depending on your circumstances, you may record your presentation on your own, or with CME resources. If you would like help with your recording contact Jay Cowan.

Considerations for recording:
·       Maximize the strength of your internet connection if you are recording with an web-based tool like ZOOM. E.g., get close to your wifi router, or, if possible, connect to your router via an Ethernet cable
·       Find a location that is as quiet as possible, without background noise.
·       Use an external microphone if you have one.
·       Optionally, you can also record video of yourself delivering the presentation via webcam. If you opt to include video, position yourself such that your backlighting is minimized and your front lighting is maximized.
If you record your presentation on your own, please upload it to this dropbox folder. The CME department will process it for viewing during the conference.
