Preparing your presentations

Preparing your presentation - Invited and Standard Oral Presentations

Invited and Standard presentations will be assigned to a symposium or a workshop. Symposia will present series of up to 10' pre-recorded videos followed by live stream Q&A and discussion with the audience. Symposia introduction and discussion will be facilitated by a chair. During the discussion, presenters will open their cameras, respond to questions posed through the Q&A PheedLoop chat and engage in lively discussions on the topics of the event. Workshops will be more flexible in terms of format.
