Please find below some practical information to prepare for your presentation at the conference.
The posters and demos will be integrated into the Networkapp virtual conference environment. We expect ample opportunities for attendees to look at the posters and ask questions during the online Q&A sessions, which will be held in Gather.town.
Poster Q&A sessions
In addition to the Networkapp we will also organize online Q&A sessions in Gather.town, an interactive environment where participants will be able to connect via video chat.
We will split the posters into odd and even numbers. Please check your poster number in the Networkapp (based on your abstract submission number) and make sure you are there to present your poster on:
- 15 June, 16:30-17:15 (odd numbers)
- 16 June, 11:45-12:30 (even numbers)
Of course you are welcome to join both sessions as we encourage participants to interact with each other!
Upload your poster PDF - deadline: 6 June 2021
To be able to present your poster/demo online, we need you to upload your poster as a PDF file (A4 size), preferably portrait style, 6 June 2021 at the latest.
Use the following naming convention for the poster PDF file, where <poster> is the word "poster" (so no need to paste in the title):
If you present a demo, please also submit a poster PDF. In the Gather.town environment, during the online Q&A sessions you will be able to share your screen with participants to present your demo!

Note for Mac users
A kind note to Mac users with the latest system software release (Mac OS Big Sur): to share your screen in the Zoom app, your security settings need to be changed in your system preferences. In your System Preferences, you will find the tab <Securing and privacy> in which you will find the option “Screen recordings”. In this setting, Zoom should be checked in order to activate screen sharing capabilities. Please note it requires admin rights to make this change.
We will be using Slido for questions from participants. The Slido hashtag will be made available at the start of every session. At the end of every presentation the Slido questions will be presented.
