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 page.  Visit the Speaker Resource page for information about how to record your presentation and a timeline of events.  Visit the Virtual Meeting Frequently Asked Questions page for more information about a variety of topics. 

OSA Conference Background

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

  1. Download the OSA background image or save the image displayed above (PC users: right click on image, then select "Save as"; Mac users: drag and drop image or CNTRL-click, then "Save Image as".)
  2. Select the "+" button to add the OSA image to your Zoom client.

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. OSA staff will be available to assist and answer questions.
