IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing
6–8 June 2022 // Virtual Conference


Presentation Guidelines

Presentations will take place online. Information about the platform wil be sent to you after the program is complete and posted in IEEE HPSR 2022 website.
To ensure a successful session, presentations can be made live or through recorded video. However, an author must attend the online presentation and be available for questions and answers at the end of the presentation.
We recommend the following guidelines:
1. Record your presentation and make it available to your Session Chair. This presentation will be “played” by the Session Chair if the speaker prefers to choose this modality or if the speaker connection fails.
2. Be available before the session starts and make your Session Chair aware that you are in online attendance.  You can send a private message to your Session Chair through the meeting platform.
3. Prepare your presentation and practice your presentation in the allowed time. We foresee that presentations may last about 15 mins, including 2 mins Q&A and 1min turnaround time between speakers. Try to abide to the allowed time. The Session Chair will have the right to lock the microphones for not abiding times.
4. The Session Chair will moderate the Q&A phase of your presentation.
Video Preparation Guidelines for Paper Authors
All presentation videos will be uploaded to your EDAS paper profile. Specified instructions below are recommendations for video presentation formatting:• Please prepare 12 minute video presentation slides and leave 2 minutes for Q&A.
• Please prepare a video presentation- ONLY MP4 videos will be accepted.
• Please make sure that you stick to the maximum video lengths. Longer videos will be rejected during upload via EDAS, and will be prompted to prepare a new version.

• Videos should be prepared in either 720p or 1080p HD and use an MP4 video format with H.264 (or optionally H.265) codec. SD videos do not provide sufficient resolution to see details on slides. Please do not prepare 4K or 60fps videos as they consume unnecessary bandwidth. Please do not use other video codecs that might not work on participants’ computers. The bitrate should not exceed 1 Mbps to avoid video files becoming too large.
• When recording your video, the most important aspect is to provide quality audio. We recommend producing your recording in a noise- and echo-free environment. We also recommend a dedicated microphone close to your mouth, but not directly in front of your mouth to avoid pop sounds for the recording. An alternative to a microphone is the microphone from a smartphone headset. If you record a video of yourself presenting, please also make sure you have proper lighting. Please review your recording carefully before final submission.
• There are alternative applications for recording your presentations. They are user-friendly and free-to-use tools, we particularly recommend:
– The Open Broadcasting Studio- (
– Auphonic- ( can be used to give your audio a final polish
– Handbrake- ( provides good results when you need to convert your videos to MP4
– DaVinci Resolve- ( for a video editing software that has a free version
– Apple and Windows computers also come with free video editing software (iMovie or Windows Movie Maker)ALL Presentations Deadline: June 4
