Online presentations

All contributions accepted to the conference will have one Presentation page on the online conference web platform. As on a real conference, the contributions will be divided into different sessions depending on their assigned presentation type. Each session will contain 6-10 contributions, and between the sessions there will be virtual breaks.

By default, the only content on the Presentation page is the title, abstract and name of the authors of the contribution. However, we invite you to contribute to fill the Presentation page with your contribution of whatever digital material you find suitable.

Basically, you have full freedom to choose how you want to present your work. We strongly encourage you to create a recorded presentation, following the Teaser concept we have presented before. This will enable a dynamic conference website, which is exciting to watch and follow. Recorded presentations can be easily created e.g. in Powerpoint, using Zoom or using your smartphone/tablet.

If you prefer, you can also include:

  • Powerpoint-slides (e.g. in the form of a dynamic PPT-presentation)
  • PDF document
  • Images
  • Links to other online material
  • Embedded files from Youtube, Vimeo etc.

Please check out the Tips and tricks section for some guides and inspiration.

Limitations:

For pre-recorded material, the following time limitations should be considered:

  • Contributions assigned to Oral presentations: Maximum 10 minutes
  • Contributions assigned to Poster presentations: Maximum 3 minutes

For other types of material, keep the material compact enough to maintain the readers interest in the time frames indicated above.

Note about storage and rights
