  4. The list of references should be detailed enough, allowing reviewers to track back the references (include the URL when a reference is a website).
  5. Refer only to reliable and trustworthy sources, e.g. textbooks, popular science magazines, universities or research institutes websites etc. Random online videos, blogs, websites or Wikipedia (or Baidu Baike) will NOT be accepted as references.


  1. The whole discussion should be from a scientific point of view, instead of a social study.
  2. Be quantitative whenever possible, however don’t overload the video with statistics.  Give only important and relevant numbers.
  3. You don’t have to talk about all the solutions you find.  If you don’t have enough time, talk only about the major existing solutions and your favourite proposed ones.  Detailed and comprehensive discussion of limited number of solutions is preferable over a quick discussion of many solutions.
