Best Poster Session and E-Poster Hall
Poster sessions have always been the major scientific presentations of the meeting since the majority of congress attendees present a poster showing data and progress with their research. Therefore, special to the virtual ECI 2021 there will be “Best Poster Sessions” included in the main scientific program. These sessions will include notable and exciting work from abstracts submitted to the Congress. Similar to workshop sessions, best poster sessions will also include pre-recorded presentations with a live connection for discussion. Poster presenters will send in pre-recorded video presentations of their work and will be asked to participate in a question and answer session in real time where presenters are expected to answer questions from the audience and session chairs. Best Poster Awards will be chosen from those presentations.
Furthermore, in the virtual setting there will be an E-Poster Hall where researchers can present their posters. Interactive e-poster platform will enable poster authors to connect with the audience via messaging, comment box or chat functions.
Instructions for best poster presenters as well as uploading e-posters and other technical information to use the e-poster platform will be sent in due time.
