Oral Presentation @ AESC 2021

Oral presentations will consist of a 10 minute pre-recorded presentation, plus a 1-minute pre-recorded summary with a live Q&A forum at the end of the session.

Please upload your presentation and summary by 14 December 2020 via the respective Oral Presentation & Summary Upload Boxes below. 

The 10 minute pre-recorded presentations will be available for delegates to view at their leisure from 27 January 2021 and for the duration of the convention.

Sessions will consist of a 20 minute keynote presentation (if scheduled – check the program) followed by the 1 minute summary presentations.  You will then join the other presenters in the session for a live Q & A forum to finish the session.

Questions will be submitted via the text Q & A function in the portal and live discussion led by the session chair.

Diversity @ AESC 2021

The AESC encourages the inclusion of a slide in presentations that informs us of your source of inspiration (e.g. page 1), facts from your home country (e.g. page 2), facts on traditional knowledge and its importance (e.g. page 3) and fascinating work being done by you and your colleagues related to diversity and inclusion (e.g. page 4). This is not required, but we would love to hear from you!

Please make sure you log into the platform using CHROME – firefox, edge, explorer etc DO NOT work so please do not use them.  If you do not have Chrome installed please install it prior to the scheduled rehearsal.

POST-CONVENTION INFORMATION

All live and pre-recorded presentations will be available to delegates after the event unless you advise otherwise. Any additional files authors choose to share will also be available to view during and after their presentation.

Access to the virtual platform is restricted to convention participants only and cannot be found by search engines.

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual convention Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of convention material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
