Message from the PhD Video Showcase Chairs

The PhD video showcase is the chance to showcase your research to a wider audience. It is entirely up to you how to structure your presentation, we only ask that you present a summary of you PhD research in an interesting and engaging manner.

Work will be judged on if it intellectually stimulates a quantitative geography audience and how effectively it communicates the message of your PhD topic. We are looking to put together an enjoyable showcase for attendees of the conference which showcases the research of PhD students in the area of quantitative geography. Interesting but poorly-produced videos will be rejected – but if it’s YouTube-ready, it should be ok for the PhD showcase.

Ideally all spoken dialogue in the video will be accompanied with a subtitle file to ensure accessibility of your research. To make a subtitle file, one of the easiest ways is to upload your video to YouTube and use their captioning tools. It is possible to keep the video private and then delete it immediately after you have produced and downloaded your caption file (.sbv). Which should be submitted with your video.
