A Euroscicon live streamed event gives you access to a wider range of international speakers at a fraction of the cost of a real world event.  Furthermore you no longer have to worry about travel or accommodation expenses.

….and you can watch the recording of the event for up to a month later, so you will never miss a talk

These live streamed events run the same as real world events but from the comfort of your home or office.

We still have the high quality, packed agendas with international speakers that you have come to expect from a Euroscicon event,

…and you can still

  • submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation.
  • ask questions of our speakers.
  • get CPD and attendance certificates.
  • network with all participants.
  • view posters

We even have a new networking site specific for each event where you can chat to all the participants, before, during and after the meeting.

Unlike a real world event, you do not have to be present for a whole session.

You can miss any sessions or talks and watch the recording later, and you can re-watch talks you have already attended to refresh your memory and make sure you get the most out of each talk.

Below are answers to technical questions you may have regarding the processes involved in live streamed events.  We can also take you through this once you have registered.  Its very simple!

  • How can I Optimizing my PowerPoint Slides for WebEx Sessions?

    Design Suggestions

    • Vary your slide layouts, and avoid slides of plain bulleted lists.
    • Use colors, shapes, and effects consistently, but don’t use so many that they hide your content.
    • Avoid putting too much information on a single slide. Two slides with an equal amount of content work better than a single, crowded slide. Also, remember that attendees might not focus on the presenter if they are trying to read a crowded slide.
    • Decorative graphics in a presentation should be the same type and style. Avoid using both clip-art illustrations and photographs in one slide deck.
    • Use the PowerPoint spellchecker, and ask someone to edit and proofread your slides.
    • For dynamic presentations, add multimedia objects to your slides using the WebEx Universal Communications Format (UCF) toolkit, which you can download from your WebEx site. For more information about the UCF toolkit, see Using UCF Toolkit (WBS29.13, WBS30).
    • Always preview your slides in a practice WebEx session so you can see the presentation from an attendee’s perspective.
    • Think twice about adding effects that seem eye-catching. They may distract from your content.

    Technical Considerations

    For best performance in your WebEx sessions, construct your slides with the following tips in mind. In addition, be sure to test your presentation in a practice WebEx session to confirm that it renders the way you expect it to.

    Transitions and Effects

    • For smooth, professional animation, choose one of the following Custom Animation effects: Appear, Fade, or Wipe.

    Fonts

    • Sans serif, regular weight fonts are easiest to read online.
    • Avoid uncommon, specialized fonts. Text formatted with unsupported fonts will not be displayed.

    Screenshots

    • Save screenshots at 300 dpi so they are small, then re-size them in PowerPoint, if needed. Unlike typical graphics programs, PowerPoint scales up better than it does down.

    Lines, Boxes, and Borders

    • Straight horizontal and vertical lines display better than diagonal ones.
    • On boxes and callouts, square corners reproduce better on screen than rounded corners.
    • When using borders on screenshots and other graphics, use lines no wider than .75 points.
    • Instead of applying colored fill to a text box, layer the transparent text box over a filled rectangle.

     

  • What are the "Sharing in full screen" controls?

    When you share in full-screen mode, session controls are available in a control panel at the top of your screen.

    pastedImage_3.png

    Return—Exit full-screen view and return to the event window.

  • What presentation tools are there?

    When you are the presenter, you can use the page controls to move forward and backward through a document and change the participants’ view of content you are sharing. For example if you are sharing a PowerPoint presentation, you can use the controls to move through slides.

    Note: The page controls will not advance through transitions and animations when sharing presentations created with PowerPoint 2013 or later.
