practical details on ISBA²⁰²¹

Remember that the [online]  ISBA 2021 conference will be a mixture of live talks, pre-recorded talks, and posters. All live-streaming will be via Zoom, with links integrated into the Whova platform.

  1. Plenary talks (i.e., Foundational Lectures, Keynote Lectures, and Named Lectures) and all invited talks will be live-streamed during the corresponding sessions.
  2. Contributed talks are prerecorded (available from June 10, 2021). During the live-streamed Contributed Sessions, each speaker will give a 5-min live recap of their contributed talk,  highlighting the main points, followed by live discussion and Q&A from the audience.
  3. Contributed speakers who had optionally chosen to accompany their talk with a poster will present the poster [live] in their designated Poster Sessions. All Poster Sessions will be held on Gather.town, which will also serve as the virtual space for social times during the whole conference.
  4. One week before the conference, Gather.town will go live and all posters will also become available then.
  5. Speakers of all talk types will have the option to upload and post their slides on Whova starting one week before the conference [which I personally recommend as I find it too easy for my attention to drift off during an online and need to recheck earlier slides to reconnect!]
