Video Abstracts

The participants are encouraged to submit a video abstract in addition to the extended abstract for promoting their research findings.

Video abstracts are intended to emphasize the scientific contents of a contribution. It provides an alternative means to publicise technical development work and innovative ideas.

Videos of mainly commercial contents or general presentations of the author’s institutes are not supported.

Although there is no strict limit, we suggest to keep the video abstract not longer than about 3 minutes. Video abstracts may have a soundtrack.

The video abstract can have a trailer and/or back titles to provide information on the subject and authors.

The upper right corner will appear overlaid by the logo of the Second JTC1 Workshop.

Further hints on how to produce appealing, and thus successful video abstracts can be found, e.g., at American Journal of Physics 85, 85 (2017).

The selected video abstracts will be displayed at the workshop and uploaded to the website of the Workshop.
