Instructions for presenters


The talks will be moderated by a chair person and should be 20 minutes long + 10 minutes for a Q&A session. Both conference rooms will be equipped with a conference owl, i.e., all talks will be accessible onsite and online.


The poster session will be held on 15 September (Thursday) afternoon.

Prior to the poster session there will be a lightning talk session where the core ideas of each poster will be presented in two minutes. Please stick to this strict limit. We have allotted more time to the whole lightning session to accommodate delays caused by potential technical issues. Please send us your lightning talk slides by *Wednesday 7th September*, regardless of whether you will present onsite or online.


The poster format is portrait A0 (height 199 cm / 47 in; width 84 cm / 33 in). Onsite poster presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptop with Zoom (or other software), so that online participants can join their poster discussion.


Online poster presenters can choose from multiple modes of presentation.

  • The “leanest” mode is placing the poster/slides online (e.g. via Slack) and potentially set up a Zoom link for other participants to join during the poster session (or any other times proposed by the authors).
  • The “full” mode is having the poster actually printed (we can assist with that, though the cost of poster printing would be up to the presenters). Next to the poster we would prepare a computer/tablet with the Zoom presence of the presenters. 

Setting up the individual Zoom (or other software) links would be up to the authors; they can be placed in the respective Slack channels.
