Virtual conference venue and social programme

Throughout the conference, the virtual conference venue “” will be open, which is intended to provide - at least to some extent - the conference atmosphere of a face-to-face event. The postersession and the social evening will also take place there. Due to capacity constraints, there are two worlds, each allowing up to 500 people - links can be found in the program booklet.

Information for sessions from individual contributions

  • One presenter of the first paper of each session has been appointed as Chair. The Chair will act as moderator for the session.

  • The sessions last 105 minutes each and usually include four contributions. Therefore, each contribution has 15 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Contributions will be discussed immediately following the presentation.

  • During each session, an assistant from the organizing team will be on hand to help with technical questions and problems. He/she will also take the time to signal to the presenters how much speaking time is left.

Information for symposia, workshops and open contribution formats.

  • Symposia, workshops, and open contribution formats are organized independently by the respective Chair. The Chair communicates the modalities of the presentations and the schedule to the contributors well in advance.

  • In the symposia, the presentation time for the individual contributions should also be 15 minutes, if possible, followed by time for questions from the audience.

  • During each session, an aide from the organizing team will be present to help with technical questions and problems. She will also take the time to signal to the presenters how much speaking time is left.
