At least one author of the accepted abstract must register to attend either the in-person conference or, if they cannot travel to the conference, to present their work via zoom or the conference app. Only talks and posters of registered participants will be scheduled in the final program.
Abstracts of all accepted talks and posters will be included within the online program which will be distributed to all registered conference participants via the conference app.
Accepted oral presenters: You will give your talk live and in-person as scheduled in the program. An audio recording of your talk along with your slides will be made available to all delegates after the event (subject to your permission).
Accepted poster presenters: You will present your poster in the live poster sessions as scheduled in the program. You are encouraged to upload your poster and a short video pitch to the conference app to enable viewing and discussion via 1:1 meeting via the conference app by our non-attending delegates.
