Authors should prepare a PDF file following the IEEE single-space, two-column format using at least 10 point size type. The paper must be correctly formatted to fit on A4. The paper should not exceed 6 pages including figures, tables & references. Maximum 4 additional pages are allowed. Additional pages will be overcharged. The papers cannot exceed 10 pages, otherwise they will be automatically rejected. The cost of overcharge per page will be indicated in the Registration Fees. The paper must be submitted in PDF format via the EDAS System.
Note: The congress organizers reserves the right to not include a paper to the Proceedings if the congress registration fee is not paid or if the paper is not presented on the ICUMT 2020 congress.
All authors of accepted and registered papers for ICUMT 2020 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). Please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files. In order for videos to be verified by the Technical Program Committee, there is considerable urgency in preparing and uploading your video. Accordingly, we ask you that you please finalize and upload your video by October 2, 2020.
Preparing the Video-presentation
There are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation. In this method, you can show your face via webcam (if you’d like) and display your slides as you talk. You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording and your final file is in the MP4 format. Here are some links to instructions on recording a meeting on common platforms:

Tips for Video-recording
1. Use as quiet place as possible.
2. Avoid areas that have echo.
3. Rooms should be fairly small.
4. Sound dampening with carpeting, curtains, furniture.
5. Fixed-line internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, a strong Wi-Fi connection
6. Good headset with microphone close to mouth, but away from direct line of mouth to reduce "pops". Avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.
7. Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation. Make adjustments if needed.
