Registration and Online platform
The Whova platform is used for the conference.
On it, you will find an agenda, gathering all the sessions and sub-sessions. In each session, you can find a streaming link and/or a video link (the link to switch between the two is just over the top right of the video). In each session (and sub-session) there is a Q&A section and a chat section. You have also access to a messaging tool with the other attendees.
The 20 min pre-recorded videos of each of the papers will be available one week before the conference (the 31st of August) in their corresponding sub-session. You can already ask questions in the Q&A section (accessible either through the corresponding sub-session or through the Session Q&A resource).
During a session at the conference, the teasers (3 first minutes of the 20 min video) will be streamed. Following, some questions, selected by the session chair among the questions available in the Q&A section will be answered live. This process is done for each paper of the session. Then, 30 min will be allowed for a "poster" session. Each author will be invited to go in their own zoom meeting (available in the corresponding sub-session). These sub-sessions will be a space to discuss live the paper and some more detailed questions. After their sessions, the authors are invited to answers by writing to the Q&A section of their paper.
