Oral presentation guidelines
How will I give my talk if my abstract is selected?
Abstract submission and selection by the Scientific Committee/Student Award Committee will work as for the traditional conference format. Selected talks will be assigned to sessions that will be moderated by chairs and will be streamed live. The speaker can either present his/her talk directly or pre-record the talk with the aid of our assistants and later that will be shown in its slot in the session. All speakers of a session will be available for questions to the talks throughout the session. Questions can also be posed throughout the Conference privately to speakers either by chat or by videoconference in the virtual networking area.
Congratulations to the acceptation of your work!
Please follow these instructions for the preparation of your presentation in order to ensure smooth and successful sessions. Thank you!
Invited keynote presentations (six plenary speakers) are scheduled for 30-35 minutes plus 10-15 minutes for questions. Student awardees’ plenary presentations are scheduled for 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. Regular and WDA Student oral presentations are scheduled for 12 minutes with three minutes for questions. Presentations will be streamed live directly but will also be pre-recorded and available for later viewing.
Both 4:3 and 16:9 formats of slides are acceptable although 16:9 format is recommended. You can pre-record your presentation and run it either on pdf or ppt, or instead give the talk in person. At the time your talk is scheduled you will need to share your desktop. We may ask for a backup of your talk in case you encounter technical problems.
