+# Frequently-asked questions
+
+## Can I present live?
+
+Tech issues kept happening during EmacsConf 2020, so we'd really
+prefer that all talks have prerecorded videos. There might be time for
+live questions and answers over a web conference, though, so if you
+can record a short video covering your main points, you might be able
+to go into more detail in live Q&A.
+
+## I have so much I want to share. Can I record a longer video?
+
+The conference program has so many interesting talks. We wish we
+could fit everything in at full length! (Maybe EmacsConf month?)
+Please think of your video as a short teaser that can get people
+interested and point them to where they can find out more. You can
+e-mail <emacsconf-submit@gnu.org> links and other notes to add to the
+wiki page for your talk. If you'd like to record a longer video *in
+addition* to the short one for the main conference, please feel free
+to send us that too.
+
+## I can't figure out how to record the video. Can I just present the talk?
+
+We might be able to help you record your talk using the BigBlueButton
+web conferencing system before November 7. Please e-mail
+<emacsconf-submit@gnu.org> with some times that might work for you and
+we'll see if a volunteer can meet up with you to record it.
+
+## I'm not used to talking to myself. Can I present the talk to someone?
+
+We might be able to help you record your talk using the BigBlueButton
+web conferencing system before November 7. Please e-mail
+<emacsconf-submit@gnu.org> with some times that might work for you and
+we'll see if a volunteer can meet up with you to record it.
+
+## More questions?
+
+Please e-mail <emacsconf-submit@gnu.org>. We'd love to hear from you.

+Thanks for contributing to EmacsConf 2021!
