Video Recording Submission

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to turn our PURE colloquium from a physical event into a virtual one. Due to this, our assessors had requested for the presenters to send in a video recording of themselves presenting their topic and this will only be used during times if there are technical difficulties. Please be informed that the video recording must be:

  • in high resolution;
  • your voice is clearly heard; &
  • be approximately 10 minutes, no more and no less.

Your video recording must be emailed to [email protected] before 1 July 2022. You can use Google Drive, Wetransfer, Smash and Dropbox (or any websites you prefer).
