Post-Acceptance actions for authors

Presenting authors must register to attend one region in-person.

Please note that each speaker can only present at one session during the conference. If you have authors with more than one submission accepted for oral presentation, they should normally be presented by other co-authors. If this cannot be arranged, please get in touch with our team as soon as possible to make a final decision on which paper(s) to include in the final programme.

Please read the important information on our registration page and complete your registration by 16 September to secure your time slot in the conference programme.

All presenters are required to submit a video of their presentation before the conference. This will be shared with all registered attendees via the Data for Policy YouTube channel. There is a playlist of 2020 videos available for examples.

Preparation and submission guidelines for videos:
The following are absolute requirements* which we ask you to adhere to:

  • Videos must be made in landscape orientation, either using the conference virtual background (opens in new tab – right click on image to save), or a neutral, natural background with adequate lighting.
  • Presenter must start the video by introducing themselves, and giving the submission number and title.
  • Videos must be 15-25 minutes in length.
  • Videos must be at least 720p resolution. The optimum resolution for YouTube is 1080p. Videos do not need to be higher resolution than this.
  • Videos must be in YouTube supported format (see YouTube page for details).
  • Videos must be named in the format [submission number]_[family name of presenter], e.g., 1_gardner

To assist you in preparing your videos, we have compiled guidance for using Zoom and Microsoft Teams. The organisers regret that they are unable to offer support to individuals in recording their presentations.

Videos must be submitted by 30 September, by upload to the Data for Policy OneDrive. Instructions on how to do this will be sent to the submission’s first author by email at the beginning of September. Videos may also be uploaded to the Data for Policy community on Zenodo.
