For Online Speakers


1. Recommend using a laptop or desktop PC, not a mobile device.

2. Check your internet connection.

Make sure you have a reliable, strong Internet connection (private wifi or internet cable is recommend). The minimum speed required is 10 - 15 Mbps. You can always check your internet speed at

3. Recommend to use an external microphone.

For the best audio experience, please use a headset, earbuds, or external USB microphone. This avoids background noise and echos.

4. Recommend to use an external webcam.

You can use the computer’s built-in webcam. However, we recommend using a high-definition external webcam. Laptop integrated webcams are not always high-definition and they can impact the quality of the image (position, light, focus…).

5. Download/ Update Zoom

The online presentation will be performed using Zoom Meeting platform. If you have not installed the Zoom app on the computer/laptop that you will be using for IWAMSN 2021, please download and install the "Zoom Client for Meetings" Software from After download, run as administrator.

If you already were an experienced Zoom user, please ensure your app is ready and fully updated.



Your camera should be at eye level. If you are using the camera on your laptop, you can stack a few books under your computer to raise the level of the camera up.

Always adjust the angle of the camera to place yourself both horizontally and vertically in the center. An ideal view would be from about mid-chest to just above your head.

Lighting is key. Identify where most of the light is coming from (for example a window) and put your computer in front of it – as close as you can – so you get as much light on your face as possible. If you cannot face a window, consider getting an additional light (such as a desk lamp) and place it on, or behind your desk-facing you.

In case you are sharing your screen to show presentation slides, please make sure you turn off all messenger apps, email pop-up windows, and other screens that may turn up in front of your slides while you are presenting, and that you show the slides in full-screen mode.

Mute your mobile phone and other sources of sound.



As a speaker, you are requested to join the sub-session that you will deliver the talk at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the sub-session (not the start of your talk).

You will be presenting in an online meeting. It is essential that you give us the opportunity to do a technical test run with you some days before the meeting to test audio and video as well as explain the functionality of the meeting platform. We want to make sure technology works perfectly on that day.

Our IWAMSN 2021 staff will contact you soon for preparing the technical check and test-run.




We want to make IWAMSN 2021 a “live” experience as much as possible, and therefore we recommend that you give a live presentation. However, for various reasons (poor connection quality, interference noises, poor video quality, as well as other technical difficulties), this may not be possible. Therefore, you are recommended to send us a pre-recorded presentation that we will stream during the conference if the above-mentioned problems appear.

There are 2 ways to record your presentation:

1. Using PowerPoint to Record a Presentation Video

You take the initiative to record your presentation. Please read “Guidelines for Recording your Presentation using Powerpoint” below for more information.

Please send us your recording no later than July 24, 2021. Our IWAMSN 2021 staff will contact you soon for uploading your pre-recorded presentation.

2. Using Zoom to Record a Presentation Video

We will record your presentation during your technical test-run mentioned above.

For speakers in Vietnam, detailed instructions will be informed later!



Step 1: Create your presentation in Powerpoint (Microsoft Office 2010 or newer versions)

Step 2: Record a slide show with narration and slide timings

Remember to prepare a sound card, microphone, and speakers, and (optionally) a webcam, you can record your PowerPoint presentation and capture narrations, slide timings, and ink gestures.
