How to submit

Production of the Summary Video:

Video-summary is the form of oral presentation that will be held for all papers submitted to the II Workshop of the Graduate Program in Biosciences Applied to Health at UNIFAL/MG. Works that have as their main focus advances in scientific knowledge in Applied Health Biosciences and that have their abstract in a written format properly formatted within the event’s norms can be submitted as videos.

The video must be presented in a maximum of 5 minutes. Submissions made including videos longer than 5 minutes will be rejected.

The video must contain only the information of the submitted work, information that identifies patients, doctors or any information that may identify the location of the videos or patients will not be allowed.

We suggest to presenters that they use slideshow programs with clear backgrounds to make the video, where it is possible to highlight texts, figures, tables, and images of the work. The video can have its own audio.

We request that the opening screen of the video contain the title of the work and the authors, as well as their respective affiliations. Therefore, an introduction should be made at the beginning of the video. In the introduction, the presenter must sequentially present the theoretical bases, problematization and justification of the work. After the introduction, the methods, results, and discussion must be presented, and finally the conclusions.

It is suggested that video files be recorded in MPEG2, MPEG4 (.mpg), Windows Media Video 9 (.wmv) formats; or Quick Time (.mov).
