As previously announced this year IFSO-EC 2020 is organized as a fully virtual conference. Apart from the virtual lectures we are planning so-called e-poster library and e-video library. Within the e-poster library each e-poster will have its own chat associated for people watching your e-poster, so you should make sure to be online at least some time during the Scientific Programme on 11 December to answer possible upcoming questions and make it a lively conference.
Since the known A0 one-page poster format for a physical stand is not easy to digest in a virtual conference we have decided to run it with a SHORT 3 MINUTES PRESENTATION FORMAT (3-5 SLIDES)(maximum) with voice comments that has to be pre-recorded by the author and uploaded to the provided link no later than 2 December. Optionally you can upload one additional supporting document in PDF format (your corresponding paper will automatically be available also directly from the poster stand).
The posters will be displayed during the whole virtual conference and also, after until the end of January 2021.
The presentation should contain typically 3 to 5 slides. Recommended aspect ratio for best viewing experience is 16:9, although 4:3 can be used as well in Microsoft PowerPoint version 2013 or higher and where the authors can also add their voice comments over the slides.
As an alternative there are several video conferencing tools available to easily record a presentation. In this method, you can show your face through the web cam if you would like and display your slides as you talk. You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording, and your final file is in the MP4 format. Here are some links to instructions on recording a meeting on common platforms:
The upload functionality will be available from 23 November onwards on the virtual conference website. You will need to complete your upload no later than 2 December. More details will be provided soon.
