The presentations are pre-recorded and submitted in advance. Nevertheless, the speakers are live during the session to answer questions of participants after the pre-recorded presentations.
During the session: the presentations are introduced by the chairs first and will then be shown afterwards.
All chairs and speakers need to log into a Zoom meeting to be live in the session (supported by technical staff).
Registered participants can ask questions via a question box below the stream throughout the session. These questions will be read out by the chairs and answered live by the speakers either at the end of each pre-recorded presentation or at the end of the session.
Setup of the Zoom meeting
The use of Zoom is required for participation. In case you are unable to use Zoom at your institute/clinic, please check whether it is possible to use Zoom on your private computer, in the mobile app on your tablet or on your mobile phone. If all these options are not available, please give us feedback so that we can discuss further action.
The chairs, speakers and participants will be in the Zoom meeting. This allows them to use their microphone and camera. The person speaking is displayed, however all parties can be seen and heard by the participants.
Before the session is started by the technical direction, all participants remain in the „waiting room“. Once they are admitted to the meeting, the speakers and chairs can be seen and heard by the participants.
Communication between speakers, chairs, and participants
A few weeks before the conference the speaker is required to submit a pre-recorded presentation as a video. This presentation will be played during the session by our technical direction.
Pre-recorded presentations are submitted via the upload centre.
The speakers and chairs will be live in the Zoom meeting during the entire session. The presentation will be followed by a short Q&A where questions from the audience will be passed on to the speakers by the chairs.
Throughout the session, our technical staff will be available in the background to give direction and help with problems.
