Virtual Conference

Because of COVID -19,  IFIP Networking 2021 and the workshops in conjunction will be organised as a virtual conference on Zoom.
In parallel we will use Slack for documenting interactions/discussions that the participants will wish to keep for a longer period than the session chat. During the sessions, authors will be present on the chat channel and participate live in oral question and answer sessions after their presentation.

Video instructions

Authors of accepted and registered papers for IFIP 2021 are required to upload a pre-recorded video of their paper presentation.

The presentation can be recorded by any of the co-authors and will be available during the original dates of the conference and on-demand after the conference concludes. 

We request you to prepare and upload a video of your presentation, comprised of a brief introduction with webcam, if desired, followed by voice over slides for your presentation. This is a requirement for your paper to appear in IEEE Xplore. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below). You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording and your final file is in the MP4 format.
