6-minute videos for IGC 2021 presentations

Please read and use these guidelines.  We are very close to having a superb outcome for IGC2020 but need your cooperation.
 
  1. Your video presentation should be no more than 6 minutes long.  The conference committee may shorten your video to fit the conference timeline if you exceed this time limit.
  2. At a minimum, your video should cover the same content areas as the PowerPoint summary described below but your video will allow you more flexibility to expand on that outline.
  3. Your PowerPoint summary slides may be a part of your video but that is not essential.  However, please include a clear introduction with the project name, its main goal or goals, and a description of the project location.
  4. End the video with "closing credits" including participants and any special resources that you were able to use.
  5. Please upload your video presentation in *.mov format as described above.

PowerPoint formats for IGC 2021 project summaries

 
Please read and use these guidelines.  Your presentation PowerPoint should be 5 slides. 
There are FIVE REQUIRED PowerPoint slides.  See template and guidelines linked below.

IGC Layout and Graphic Suggestions 

All teams should use the PowerPoint and Adobe InDesign templates provided to prepare materials with readable text that will be made available to all participants to enable machine translation into other languages. 

 

Beyond those constraints, participants are encouraged to use their full creativity to convey the background and supplemental material essential to their project. 3-D representations, charts and graphs are encouraged, to complement the 2-d map graphics. Use the best combination to convey your design but be consistent in using the same elements to convey the three scenario outcomes that have been specified.
