Flipped Format

DH2024 Pre-Recorded Presentation Option

Deadline for Submissions: 10 December 2023 11:59:00 PM EST

Notification of Acceptance: 5 March 2024

Deadline to share video: 15 July 2024 

For DH2024, we are offering an experimental presentation format. Long papers and panels may be presented in a flipped manner, where pre-recorded talks are viewed before the event and session times are dedicated to discussion. Recordings will be due to the organizers on July 15, 2024, and made available for viewing through the schedule page in ConfTool. Attendees will we expected to view the video in advance. 

The flipped format is available to all long papers and panels that are accepted for the conference. The format will not be considered during review. In the acceptance notice, we will ask if you plan to pre-record a video of your presentation as well as information on how to share your video. Further instructions on how to share the video with the conference organizers will be included in the acceptance notification.  Links to the recorded presentations will be made available to registered attendees through the schedule in ConfTool. 

There are many benefits to recording your presentation. 

  • Presentations can be captioned, which will increase auditory and linguistic accessibility.
  • Presenters can present in any of the ADHO languages and we can AI-translate the transcripts.
  • Viewers can access the presentations on their own schedule, which is especially important for time zones and people with home commitments that don’t allow them to watch at certain times or continuously. 
  • Presenters and session attendees can focus on discussion of ideas raised, which is one of the main benefits of presenting at a conference in the first place

It is up to you, the presenter, to decide how to record and edit your video.  There are many resources available on the web that can help you to prepare, record and share your recorded presentation. Here are a few resources to get you started. 

In the spirit of the conference theme, reinvention and responsibility, we encourage presenters to explore how pre-recorded papers and panels can make your work more accessible. Here are a few links with suggestions and guidelines:
