Oral Presentations:

Oral presentations will be given in multiple sessions. In order to maximize the number of presentations each participant could attend. We plan 5 parallel sessions. Each speaker will have a total of 20 min to present their work. The presentation (video) should be uploaded in the virtual conference hosting platform. The following steps are necessary for preparing and uploading your presentations:

1. Prepare your Power Point slides. In case you use another program, please refer to its manual for voice recording and video file exporting functions.
2. Use voice recording function of Microsoft Power Point. You can refer to the instructions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/record-a-slide-show-with-narration-and-slide-timings-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c
4. Upload your video in the link that will be provided by Whova (our Conference Virtual Hosting Service Provider). Note that this link is being prepared for each author separately by Whova now and all authors will be informed early next week.

 

Poster Presentations:

About 60% of all contributions will be posters, to be presented within the poster sessions (up to 1.5 hours each). Each poster must have a PDF file uploaded in ESCAPE-31 virtual hosting website provided by Whova. Each poster should be in A0 size (84.1×118.8 cm) in portrait orientation. You can refer to this link on how to prepare your posters. In addition, each poster has the option to upload a 7 minutes of video. The poster and the presentation (if the authors choose to prepare one) should be uploaded to the virtual conference hosting platform. The following steps are necessary for preparing and uploading your presentation:

1. Prepare your Power Point poster. Each poster should be in A0 size (84.1×118.8 cm) in portrait orientation. You can refer to this link on how to prepare your posters. In case you use another program, please refer to its manual for voice recording and video file exporting functions.
2. Use voice recording function of Microsoft Power Point. You can refer to the instructions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/record-a-slide-show-with-narration-and-slide-timings-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c
4. Upload your poster in PDF format and the presentation video in the link that will be provided by Whova (our Conference Virtual Hosting Service Provider). Note that this link is being prepared for each author separately by Whova now and all authors will be informed early next week.

 

All papers will be reviewed by the Programming Committee and a very limited number of papers will be moved from regular submission to keynote paper.
