Presenter Guidelines

TQC 2021 is organized as an online conference due to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Authors of each paper are expected to prepare a 20-30 minutes long pre-recorded talk that will be made available on TQC 2021 website and Youtube channel. From July 5 to July 8, 2021, there will be live sessions, where each paper will have a short 5 minute presentation of the paper by the authors with 5 minutes for questions by the audience. The exact schedule and more details will be made available shortly. We ask paper authors to prepare video recordings of their talks and to upload their talks to Dropbox by June 17, 2021.

Preparing your presentation for online conference

For the virtual conference the authors of each paper should prepare a pre-recorded presentation and deliver it to conference organizers in MP4 format. The recommended length of such video is 20-30 minutes.

Although there is no standard template for TQC 2021 (pre-recorded) presentations, you are expected to follow the best practices and make sure that your pre-recorded audio-visual presentation has a clear focus on the research contributions and the readability of visualizations and text is of good quality.
