In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, SAS 2021 been moved to a fully virtual conference. We have opted for a format where each contributed presentation will take the form of a pre-recorded video, available during the new dates of the conference, August 23-25, and on-demand after the conference concludes.
We request a prerecorded version of your presentation be submitted. Presentations will be posted to the virtual platform, and available for viewing to all attendees through the conference, as well as, the four weeks to follow.
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 will be posted within your presentation time slot on the SAS 2021 on-demand virtual platform. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below). Please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files.
