Presenter and Moderator Preparation

The symposium will be held online from 8-11 a.m. CST (Chicago, USA; UTC-6) on November 30, December 1–4 and December 7–11.

Each session will be composed of three oral presentations – each with a 10-minute question and answer session immediately following. Oral presentations can either be live or pre-recorded. If you choose to record your presentation, you will need to provide it for the virtual meeting.

A 30-minute panel discussion with that day’s speakers, moderated by the Session Chairpersons, will conclude the session.

Detailed instructions for recording and uploading your presentation as well as how to present live are included in the guide linked below.

In addition, we have created a guide for moderators to help you best facilitate your session.
