Click HERE to reach the online schedule of virtual sessions.


The conference program is oriented along one single stream of 9 regular sessions of platform presentations and 7 poster sessions within the 3 thematic days

Each platform session will benefit from 1 keynote lecture (max. 30 min) and 5 oral presentation highlights (max. 10 min each) followed by a break-out session of 30 min with the audience. All platform presenters will upload a pre-recorded version of their presesentation (as mandatory safety backup) and will have the opportunity to choose to either present live or to let play the pre-recorded version. If digital technical issues occur, the pre-recorded version will be launched.

Each poster will be displayed and accompanied with a max. 2-3 min pre-recorded poster talk during all poster sessions. The morning/afternoon/evening poster sessions enable presenters and delegates to join and interact at their time zone convenience. This should allow for a maximum of flexibility within the virtual setting.

No pre/post-conference workshops are scheduled. The 9 regular sessions are acting as interaction ground between delegates.

Full interaction between delegates along all poster and platform sessions is fostered and requested. This is key for a successful interaction and exchange across the conference. Thank you very much in advance!
