Speaker Service Center

Welcome to the Virtual Conference Speaker Service Center.

Here you will find information on important deadlines, presentation recording and formatting, upload instructions, presider guidelines and other items that you will need to read before attending the virtual conference.  

For more information about the all-virtual web conference format, visit the About OFC page.

 

OFC Conference Wallpaper

We encourage all speakers to use a OFC Conference background when presenting—either live or in a prerecorded video. 

The Zoom platform allows you to customize your virtual background in Settings/Virtual Background.

  • Download the OFC wallpaper image
  • Select the "+" button to add the OFC wallpaper to your Zoom client.
  • Select "Mirror my Video".

Note that virtual backgrounds work best when you present in front of a bare wall with no bright light behind you.

Zoom Practice Room

Prepare for your Zoom presentation in a stress-free environment. Use the Zoom Practice Room to rehearse, including sharing your screen, giving your presentation, advancing your slides and testing your mic and speakers for optimum participation during the meeting. OFC staff will be available to assist and answer questions.
