Fast Forward Guidelines

The Fast Forward session will take place at 6:45 PM on Monday, May, 6th, 2019. At least one author of each Full Paper, Short Paper or Education Paper will be presenting a 40 second preview of the talk. All the presentations for the Fast Forward will be embedded in a movie. We ask authors to prepare:

1) a PowerPoint-2016 title slide that will be used to show the title of the paper, authors and affiliations. Use of Template EG2019 slides is mandatory. The slide will last 5 seconds.
2) a 35 seconds movie that will present the main contributions of the paper (do not put the title in this 35 seconds movie).
Alternatively, if authors cannot provide the 35 seconds movie, they may provide a static slide (no animations or movies embedded). Again use of the provided template is mandatory.

For your own movie (35 seconds), your are only bound by the limits of your imagination (and our formatting guidelines). Eurographics 2019 has several concurrent sessions each day, and attendees will decide which presentations to attend based (in part) on the preview during the Fast Forward session. Creativity is highly encouraged!

We will collect all the material for all the papers, then assemble them into a single movie. We will strictly enforce our formatting guidelines (see below), including the 35 second time limit on your own content.

Submission

Submit your Fast Forward materials directly to the Fast Forward organizer at eg2019-fastforward@ge.imati.cnr.it. Submit a unique mail for each paper using the title « EG2019: [title] [track] » (replace [title] with the title of your paper and [track] by Full Paper or Short Paper and so on). Upon receipt, we will send you a confirmation e-mail. For submissions larger than 5MB in size, please include a link from where your materials can be downloaded from.

Formatting guidelines

Assembling these presentations is a huge task, and we request that you help by adhering to the following guidelines. We included a title slide. Please add the title of your paper and the list of authors with their affiliation. The entire fast forward presentation will be pre-recorded as a movie. You will not have the ability to go back or make your talk last longer. We will insert session title slides.

All the material must be submitted by Friday, April 5th, 2019, 23:59 GMT.

Please use Windows-based PowerPoint-2016 to prepare your slides or ensure that they are working properly when opened with this version.

We will be screening at 1080p (resolution: 1920 x 1080, aspect ratio: 16:9). Please optimize your slides and videos for these projector settings. Audio is welcome. If you use audio in your movies, please have it encoded in AAC format. Video files should be encoded in H264 and embedded in MP4 (do NOT use QuickTime (.mov) or other formats).

Do not hesitate to contact the Fast Forward organizer at eg2019-fastforward@ge.imati.cnr.it if you have further questions. If you are unable to attend the Fast Forward, please let us know as soon as possible.
