          Oral Presentation:15 minutes

  • Pls download the Poster Template and record the presentation with the Poster in the screen with a 40-second general introduction.
  • The conference organizer will combine the recorded poster presentations to a combined video. The  poster session presider will display the combined video during the poster session. 
  • Every poster presenter is then setting up his own private zoom connection (40 minute duration), and then they send the link to a poster session presider who will post the links in Zoom Chat Area , anyone who wants to join a certain poster can find it and connects to it for further discussion.
