Guidelines for Presenters

Online presentations at InterPore2024 will not be scheduled into live sessions. All online presenters will have the option of providing a pre-recorded presentation and other digital materials (including a digital document.)  

Presentations must be uploaded by the designated speaker prior to the conference. You may view the designated speaker of your abstract(s) by navigating to the My Conference page on the conference site here:

Speakers must be registered for the conference prior to 29 April. Any change of speaker must be notified to Please provide us with the abstract ID number and the name of the requested speaker. 

Online participants may present a maximum of two online presentations

Prior to the conference, create your attendee profile in Whova. Note that only those who have completed registration for InterPore2024 will be able to log into Whova for the event. Remember your profile will be seen by other attendees, sponsors and exhibitors; so, make sure to include detailed information for making connections and networking.

Pre-Recorded Presentations

We recommend a length of 10-15 minutes for pre-recorded presentations. You will not be able to upload a video directly into Whova. You will need to upload a link to your video. So that your video is accessible to all participants, we recommend using Wistia

Please follow the directions for obtaining the video link in step 2 below.

Videos should contain a prominent view of the presentation slides along with audio of the spoken presentation. Optionally, videos may contain a shot of the speaker’s head for increased engagement (this shot should be thumbnail-sized and overlaid on the slide images). Many presentation software tools allow recording audio and video directly in the application and can export appropriate video files. Please see the notes below for detailed instructions for PowerPoint. 

  1. Recording a Pre-Recorded Presentation in PowerPoint
    Follow these instructions to add audio (and optionally video) to your slides.
    Follow these instructions to generate an .mp4 file from your slides and audio/video.
    Alternatively, you can follow this video tutorial which goes through both of these steps. 
  2. Uploading a Pre-Recorded Presentation to Wistia
    Note: You should not use YouTube or Vimeo, as participants from some countries will be unable to watch your video.
  3. Uploading the pre-recorded presentation to Whova
    Shortly before the conference, registered presenters will be emailed a personal link for uploading digital content to the online conference platform.

Tips for recording videos

•    Use as quiet an area as possible.
•    Avoid areas that have echo.
•    Rooms should be fairly small.
•    Sound dampening can be done with carpeting, curtains, furniture.
•    Hardline internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, use a strong Wi-Fi connection.
•    Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”. Avoid using your device's default built-in microphone.
•    Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation. Make adjustments if needed.
