Instructions for presenters 

Body

Deadline

All presentations should be sent by Monday, 31st August. This will give us time to have a quick screening and inform you on time about any possible issues. 

How to upload your presentation

The link to the google form where you can upload your files is sent along with your abstract acceptance email. 

Registration

All presenters should register to the ESCS, as only registrants will get access to the online platform. More information about registration is available here: https://www.escs2020.iscbsc.org/Registration

You can find below further instructions based on the type of your presentation (oral presentation, poster presentation, flash-talk presentation).

 

Oral presentations

FORMAT: 15 minutes of a pre-recorded talk + 5 minute of Q&A

We ask all participants whose abstract has been accepted for an oral presentation, to send a pre-recorded presentation

  1. You can use a Powerpoint, Zoom meeting recorded presentation, or any other platform that you find suitable. You can also show yourself talking in the video when presenting, if you wish to, as long as the slides are clearly visible. 
  2. The file should be sent as an .mp4.
  3. Please make sure that, in order for the program to proceed smoothly, your pre-recorded presentation should not exceed 15 minutes.
  4. The name of the file should follow the following format: “EasyChairSubmissionNumber_LastName_FirstName”

We will make a quick screening of your presentations before the symposium. If the presentation exceeds the time limit or the slides are not clearly visible, we will ask you to re-send it. 

You can find some general tips for your pre-recorded presentations on the following websites: https://www.iscb.org/ismb2020/3968#recordedguidelines and https://www.iscb.org/images/stories/ismb2020/downloads/LivePresentationGuidelinesVirtualEvents.pdf
 

Poster presentations

FORMAT: a PDF file containing the poster and (optional) a maximum 5-minute pre-recorded presentation of the poster

All posters will be held in an online poster hall. The PDF file of the poster can be accompanied by an optional 5-min pre-recorded presentation. A Google group will also be assigned individually under each poster. These groups will be on separate pages, so the authors will still have the possibility to browse in parallel other posters and also ask questions. We expect the authors to be present in their assigned group during the Q&A session. 

Instructions:

  1. The PDF file of your poster should not exceed 40 MB
  2. (optional) The pre-recorded presentation of the poster should not exceed 5 minutes. You can use a Powerpoint, Zoom meeting recorded presentation, or any other platform that you find suitable. The presentation should be sent as an .mp4.
  3. The names of your files should follow the following format: “EasyChairSubmissionNumber_LastName_FirstName”

 

Poster flash-talk presentations

FORMAT: a 3-minute pre-recorded presentation of your poster

We ask all participants whose abstract has been accepted for a poster flash-talk presentation, to send a pre-recorded presentation:

  1. You can use a Powerpoint, Zoom meeting recorded presentation, or any other platform that you find suitable. 
  2. Please make sure that your slides are clearly visible.
  3. The file should be sent as an .mp4.
  4. Please make sure that, in order for the program to proceed smoothly, your pre-recorded presentation should not exceed 3 minutes. This presentation can be the same presentation that could accompany your poster (see “Poster presentations” above).
  5. The name of your file should follow the following format: “EasyChairSubmissionNumber_LastName_FirstName”

We will make a quick screening of your presentations before the symposium. If the presentation exceeds the time limit or the slides are not clearly visible, we will ask you to re-send it.
