Instructions for Speakers

Instructions for regular papers and colloquia papers

Regular/colloquium paper sessions are 30 minutes long (20 min for paper and 10 for Q&A) and the session will be moderated by a session chair. Papers should be 20 minutes long and must have been pre-recorded and uploaded by 11 June 2021 (see instructions below). The video of the presentation will become available to be played at the time it has been assigned. Presenters must be available on the date and time they have been assigned in order to answer questions. There will be a 10-min Q&A in which attendees can ask questions via audio chat and/or text chat.

Please ensure you are present in the Live Q&A during your session - at least for the final 10-15 minutes (depending on your video's length) - so that people can ask you questions!


Instructions for posters

Poster sessions are 1 hour long and include 12-15 posters in each session. There will be 5 minutes for video poster presentations followed by Q&A, and there will be no moderator. Presenters must upload a 5 minute video explaining their poster by 11 June 2021 (see instructions below). They will also include a poster in .pdf format - we suggest A2 size. The video of the presentation will become available to be played at the start of the poster session. Presenters must be available on the date and time they have been assigned and for the whole hour since people may pop in and out of the poster sessions (similar to a face-to-face conference). Questions to the presenter will happen via text chat and they will be managed by the presenter himself/herself.  Attendees will be able to view any or all of the posters in any order during the poster session.

Please make sure to keep an eye on questions in the 'unanswered' tab that are addressed to you.


Instructions for doctoral workshops

Doctoral workshop sessions are 1 hour long. The first 15 minutes will be a pre-recorded video of the doctoral student explaining their work, followed by 15 minutes for the discussant to react and comment on the doctoral student's work. The remaining 30 minutes will be used for Q&A in both audio chat and text chat.  Doctoral students must upload their videos by 11 June 2021 (see instructions below).   

Students, please make sure to join the Live Q&A for your session so that you are present for the discussant's comments and the general discussion.
