Call for submissions: Fuel measurement and mapping – new technologies, methods and innovations


Are you developing innovative solutions for fuels measurement and mapping? Tell us about it in a short, pre-recorded presentation video. Top submissions will be screened live during week two, while others will be selected as part of an online presentation library available to workshop participants.


Not sure how to make a video presentation? All you need is a regular slide presentation and a mic to record your voiceover presentation. This can be done in Zoom by starting a meeting with yourself, sharing your screen and pressing record. When you end the meeting, Zoom will save your video presentation as an MP4. You can also record a voice-over PPT presentation using free tools like Screencast-O-Matic.

When submitting, remember to always save your video presentation file in an MP4 format and limit the file to an 8 min maximum length and 400 MB file size. Also, include your presentation slides in pdf form.

Upload your video and presentation slides to our Google Form. The deadline to upload is February 5, 2021.
