Acceptable File Formats

  • The acceptable format of the presentation slides is .pptx created using Microsoft PowerPoint.
    • Kindly ensure the text and the graphics (including tables, figures, schematic diagrams etc) are presented with clarity.
  • The acceptable file format of the recorded presentation is .mp4
    • It is advised that the recording is done with minimal noise or such disturbances. This is mainly to ensure such that the recorded file will be of acceptable quality when it is played during the online parallel session.


Submission of Files

  • File names should be as follows.
    • For the recorded presentation - REC_PAPAER ID.mp4
      e.g. If PAPER ID = 123, the file name of the recorded presentation must be REC_123.mp4
    • For the slides - SLIDES_PAPER ID.pptx
      e.g. If PAPER ID = 123, the file name of the slides must be SLIDES_123.pptx
  • Both files: slides (.pptx) and the recording (.mp4) must be uploaded to the Google Drive folder LINK.
  • Files should be uploaded to the relevant Google Drive Folder. The Google Drive Link to this shared folder has already been notified via email to the relevant authors.
  • If the Google Drive Link cannot be accessed, kindly send both the files as attachments OR share the web-link to access those files via email to pres-aaou2021@ou.ac.lk.
