  • 1) The oral presentations will be made by a teleconferencing system using Zoom. Prior to the presentation, please connect to the test Zoom URL shown below.

    1. Click “Test Computer Audio” button.
    2. Click “Test Speaker” button in “Audio menu” and check your speaker is available.
    3. Click “Test Mic” button and check your microphone is available.

  • 5) Please note that each keynote presentation is allocated 30 minutes. If the presentation exceeds 30 minutes, you should remind the speaker to wrap up the presentation.

  • 6) If the keynote speaker has any problem in connecting to Zoom, and if he or she has previously prepared a video file for the presentation, the student assistant will play the video.
