Guides

Guide for presenters

Note! Instructions have changed: as a presenter you will not be required to share your screen to present your poster. Our session chairs will take care of sharing your presentation for session participants to see.

As a presenter it is your duty to be in the right Zoom session when your presentation time is, and to present your work. Our session chair will share your presentation via screen share for session participants to see while you tell about your research. Please make sure you deliver your one slide/page poster to us before the deadline (instructions under the title ”Poster and presentation guidelines”).

When your presentation time comes, session chair will introduce you to the audience and share your presentation via screen share. Now you can turn on your webcamera, microphone and start keeping your presentation. Once your presentation and discussion is over, close your webcamera and mute your microphone.

It is highly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer to participate the conference. Mobile devices work too, but due to presentations being posters containing more than just few bulletins of information it is recommended to use a device with as large screen as possible.

Due to updates in Zoom privacy and security settings a waiting room setting is likely enabled. When you follow a link to a parallel session you will see a notification saying that please wait for the host to admit you to the session. Please wait there and the session will open once the host has started the meeting and has admitted participants into the session. Note that the parallel sessions are accessible only during the scheduled time.

Guide for participants

As a participant you are adviced to follow the programme. Programme will be sent by email to all participants and likely to be updated on the conference website too. Follow the programme and join the sessions of your choice. There is a separate Zoom link for each parallel session and one link for each day’s Main session.

The main room is for keynote presentations and start/end of the day programme. In the main room webcamera and microphone usage is disabled for participants. Nevertheless you are free to comment the presentations using the text chat option. Session chair will follow the chat and discuss your comments with the presenters.

In parallel sessions you are able to use your webcamera and microphone. However, to ensure the best possible quality connection it is important to have your webcamera off and microphone muted when presentation is ongoing. After each presentation there will be time for discussion. Type “I have a question/Comment” to the chat and wait for the host to give out turns. When it is your turn you are free to set your webcamera on, unmute your microphone and ask questions/comment the presentation.
