The pandemic has caught us all by surprise, and has made us adapt to new situations. Although last year we had to postpone the congress, this year it will be held from October 18th to 22nd in a fully online format.
How will the congress take place?
Seven plenary lectures are scheduled to last approximately 45 minutes each. These presentations will be made live on the Zoom platform, to which only those registered for the congress will have access. There will also be two plenary sessions for young scientists of 45 minutes and live via Zoom. After each plenary session, there will be sessions with presentations of the papers of 10-15 minutes each.
All paper presentations will be pre-recorded by the participants and sent to the congress management. These communications will be hosted in a private Youtube channel with access only to those attending the congress. Instructions for the prerecording of these presentation will be given to the participants in due time.
After the plenary presentations, these recordings will be shared in Zoom, avoiding delays and connection failures. After each communication, the author will be able to answer questions from other participants live.
Posters submitted by participants will be hosted in Google Drive, and only conference participants will be able to access them.
In the coming weeks, we will provide more details on these issues, for example, what guidelines to follow for recording communications.
