Virtual Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Oral presentation requirements:

All speaker presentations will be scheduled into the program as simulated live talks. This means that attendees will watch each pre-recorded talk as if being broadcast live — without the stress of live streaming and the potential technical issues that arise from this.

Oral presentations are 10mn followed by a 5mn Q&A.

Following on from each pre-recorded talk, the presenter will be asked (where/when possible) to attend a virtual live Q&A to answer any questions or add to any discussions taking place around a presentation.

As an oral presenter at ISEK Virtual Congress, you will be required to upload the following information by June 22, 2020:

  • Pre-recorded (max 10 minutes) video presentation (with or without slides or equivalent).

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation requirements:

As a poster presenter, you will be required to upload the following information by June 22, 2020

You must upload the following:

  • PDF version of your poster (landscape format)
  • A short (max 3 minutes) pre-recorded video presentation.  We suggest that you summarize the following:
    • study’s objective and significance 
    • methods used
    • results obtained
    • conclusions and implications

You may also upload (Optional):

  • Email address for poster contact
  • Handouts/supplementary documents and any links to videos, or other web-based information in support of your poster

Poster presenters will be asked to be available to ‘stand’ at their posters at one of the three live poster sessions to take part in interactive Q&A sessions, in much the same way an onsite poster hall operates.  Poster presenter may decide which session they will stand in.  The minimum is one, but they may choose to participate in more.

When a poster presenter is not at their poster (due to time zone issues or other commitments), their poster information will be available for virtual attendees to browse and review. There will also be a ‘contact’ button, allowing individuals to connect directly with poster presenters at any time to ask questions and start follow-up discussions.

It is also strongly encouraged that you incorporate Zoom (or equivalent) video chat into your poster session, where possible, so that virtual face to face discussion can take place.
