** For accepted talks

Once your proposal is accepted we will assign you a volunteer deputy who will
help you to produce the talk recording.  The volunteer will also try to ensure
the recording is of good quality, help with uploading it to the system,
broadcasting it during the event and moderate the Q&A session after the
broadcast.  Please note that as a presenter you're expected to be available
online during and especially after the broadcast of you talk.  The schedule will
