Virtual Celebration Submission Process


Submission Process for Video Presentations: 

(For Student Panel Session submissions, please see this section of the website)

Submit your video presentation

  • Video presentation registration must be completed by Wednesday, December 2nd. The video portion of the registration can be updated by resubmitting your registration until this date.

Please see this guide for some helpful tips, example videos, editing resources, and links to creative commons audio/video.

Guidelines for Video Presentations

A video presentation is taking a face-to-face sharing of your research findings (a poster, a short presentation, a three-minute thesis) and moving that to a set video presentation about your research. A video presentation can look different from student to student and from discipline to discipline. However, all video presentations should share what your project was and what you accomplished. To learn how to submit your work, please click here to visit our Virtual Celebration Submissions page!

For submission of a video presentation to the Virtual Celebration, you will need to submit the following three items:

– Abstract (no more than 250 words)
– Text transcript of the video (required)
– A video (3 minutes is ideal but the goal is no more than 5 minutes; your professor or mentor may have other guidelines) under 100 MB in size. Closed Captioning is encouraged
– If your video file size is greater than 100 MB please create a youtube video with a private link and include the link in your abstract. For directions on how to do this see this guide
