Prepare for the Virtual Congress

Attend your assigned training session to become familiar with the virtual congress platform. (Email invitation forthcoming).

All presenting authors should be logged in and ready to respond to questions during the session. In order to do so faculty should have a solid internet connection (wired if possible), access to a webcam and microphone, dress professionally, and have a simple background.

On the day of your presentation faculty and moderators will meet in the virtual “green room” prior to each session.

During the Session

Follow the lead of your moderator.

Recorded content will be played in the order listed in the Final Program Guide but will be broken up with polls, panel discussion, Q&A time, etc. to keep the online audience engaged.

A final detailed outline for the plan of each session will be shared with Faculty of each session prior to the rehearsal session. Faculty will be connected via a WhatsApp Group to communicate directly before and during the session. All presenters in a session should plan to be live in the auditorium in the virtual congress platform throughout the entire session. The meeting will run on time, so don’t be late!
