Although SIGDOC ’23 is not a hybrid conference, we want to make presenting at the conference and being on the program available to those who may be immunocompromised or have a health or other family emergency before the conference begins.
We offer registered presenters an emergency remote presentation option and the opportunity to present their research via pre-recorded video. The emergency remote presentation policy is intended to accommodate registered SIGDOC participants in emergency situations.
We can accept requests to remotely present between October 5 and October 23 (at 12:00 pm EST), unless you have an accessibility-related reason. We cannot grant permission to stay on the program and present remotely until your registration has been paid.
Remote presenters must submit pre-recorded presentations, which will be played during your scheduled session and linked to our online program. Be mindful of time constraints. Your pre- recorded video should not exceed 12 minutes.
- If you are part of an organized panel, your co-presenters attending in person are responsible for playing your video presentation.
- For individual presenters, we plan to have moderators who will play pre-recorded presentations.
- For poster presenters, we will place a link to pre-recorded poster presentations on our website.
We encourage you to provide closed captions on your pre-recorded presentation to make it accessible to SIGDOC attendees. We will provide instructions for captioning on our Instructions for Presenters page (coming soon).
If you do need to request the remote presentation option, we will post a form to fill out on the conference website by October 5. If you know earlier than this date that you have an accessibility-related reason you can not present in person, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your situation.
