Poster Presentations

Posters will be presented as PowerPoint slides in a condensed format and should include a short speech and video (elevator pitch). The posters will be accessilbe two weeks before the meeting, during the entire discussion period and after this period until May 30, 2021. Poster discussion will be arranged individually and timely flexible between authors and interested participants

Plenary Lectures

Plenary Lecture P1 and P2 will be LIVE presentations followed by a video discussion which delegates can join.

Plenary Lecture P3 to P8 will be pre-recorded and will be available online after March 8, 2021 until May 30, 2021. For these lectures the video conferencing is separate from the presentation, and the schedule below lists the dates for the DISCUSSION rounds related to these lectures. Delegates are welcome to participate in these video conferences as well. In order to join participants must register in advance.

33 symposia have been selected by the program committee. Up to two short communications from student participants will be added to the list of speakers after the deadline for registration. Student participants can apply for giving a short communication in the symposia while submitting their poster abstract. The symposium organizers will select the student talks from these abstracts. In addition, student participants can apply for a talk in one of the two Breakling News Sessions.
