How will the conference work?
The virtual conference will operate in the virtual event platform - IAPS webapp
Presentations are assembled in sessions according to a theme, and each session is assigned to a virtual room. The sessions will be chaired by a moderator or by the symposium organisers. To enter into a specific session, participants just need to click on the session and they will automatically enter the virtual room.
The sessions will be organized in two parts.
- In the first part, the moderator will open the session and authors will present their work (max. 15m per presentation).
- In the second part, the moderator will manage the discussion based on the Q&A box and/or live questions.
Participants will be able to use a Q&A box [icon] to ask questions during, and right after, the presentations. After the presentations, participants can also join the authors in the zoom session [icon] and place their questions live. The authors will be able to answer live at the end of the session, but can still answer, after her/his session, to any remaining questions through the Q&A box.
