• Dear RATIPS 2021 AUTHOR,Closely monitoring the current COVID-19 situation, the Organizing Committee decided to run RATIPS 2021 in a virtual format. We have opted for a format where each contributed presentation will take the following form:
      • Oral Paper Presentation Video Upload: All presenters of oral presentations are required to upload a pre-recorded video which will be played during the timetables slot of the presentation (subject to optional live presentation, see below). Feel free to use your own, respectively your institution’s or funder’s slide design/template. At least one of the paper’s authors MUST attend the presentation.
      • E-Poster Presentation: All presenters for e-Poster presentations are required to submit a poster with a pre-recorded video which will be available on the website during the day of the presentation. 
      • Optional Live Presentation: Optionally presenters can choose to present live on the day. However, a recorded video of the presentation will still be required so it is available to all attendees, even if they cannot attend live. Live presentations will not be recorded to avoid problems with connection quality etc.

Live Questions and Answers: All paper presentations will be followed by LIVE Q&A, thus please make sure you are available during your timetabled sessions, even if you are relying on the pre-recorded video for your presentation.



In order for videos to be verified by the technical program committee, there is considerable urgency in preparing and uploading your video. Accordingly, we ask you that you please finalize your video no later than  28th November 2021. This is a HARD DEADLINE


  • We request you to prepare and upload a video of your presentation, consisting of a brief introduction with a webcam, if desired, followed by voice-over slides for your presentation (see instructions, next page). This will be posted within your presentation time slot on the FUZZ 2021 on-demand virtual platform. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below).
  • Please use the following guidelines for preparing your video. Final specifications will be checked at the time of submission and files not compliant may not be uploaded.
  • Duration: Oral paper presentations, 10 minutes video.
  • NOTE: The above duration is for pre-recording your presentation video, excluding the Q&A time during the real-time presentation.
  • Instructions and Tips for Recording your Video: Our recommended approach to record a compatible video from the content displayed on your computer screen and voice recording via the computer microphone is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries. (in this method, you can show your face via webcam (if you’d like).)Instructions for recording your presentation with Zoom:
