Practical information

Oral sessions : presenting authors are kindly asked to prepare a recording of their presentation (for reasons of network robustness). During the session, the chairpersons and presenting authors will be connected to an online meeting, while the other participants will attend that meeting on the application. While looking at that presentation, attendees will be able to ask questions by chatting on the application. The chair person will select the questions to be asked and the authors will answer them orally.

Requirements for the presentations are : max. duration 13 mn, format .mp4 or .avi
A tutorial about how to make that video can be found here.
Please upload your video here before November 16th.
The logo of the conference can be found here

Please note : at the end of each session, the online meeting will be open to all attendees. Thus some more questions can be asked to authors, discussions can take place or the session chairs can initiate a general panel discussion.

Session chairs : please connect to the Zoom meeting a few minutes before the start of the session. You will be welcome by the technician assistant, who will take in charge all practical issue (starting the video, switching the mikes on and off...).
Each time slot is 20 mn., but presentations should last a maximum of 13 mn. So you will have some time to introduce the speaker and to ask him some questions at the end of the video - exactly like in real life.

Poster session
(thursday 10 dec., 13h10 - 14h10) : each poster will correspond to a Zoom meeting allowing free discussion. Authors will be able to share any document during that meeting. They are asked to prepare a pdf file of the poster, or a short video, to be uploaded here before November 16th.
