Poster Presentations

(poster + 3-minute pre-recorded video)

In order to make the most of the virtual P&G, we have made some important changes to the traditional structure of the face-to-face P&G. These are the most important facts:

(1) Pre-recording: Your contributed poster and poster video will be pre-recorded and uploaded by you to the Underline platform well in advance (deadline is Jun 14). All material will be published Open Access with a DOI (be careful not to include copyrighted material, see the training material). The videos will be processed by Underline, including addition of conference logo and closed-captioning (this is why you need to upload your material before Jun 14). Underline and P&G provide training material, access to a easy-to-use recording software, and a help-desk (you may request a short video call to solve problems). You will have to upload your poster in PDF (either one traditional page or 3 slides) and a short video (max time 3 min). To upload your material you need to fill this upload form with information about you and your poster and a permission grant for P&G and Underline to use the material. Your paper ID is the one that identifies your paper in the proceeding with the format epjconfXXXXXX, where XXXXXX is a 6 digit number.

(2) Schedule: The conference will be spread over one month with only one day per week for gathering live. Have a loot at the program. Save dates and times in your calendar!

(3) Watch and ask in advance: During the week preceding the gathering day, all participants are expected to watch the corresponding talks and pose questions in writing in the Underline platform. Participants can also vote for questions that are interesting so these are asked first by the chair of the session during the Q&A live time. Participants can also visit posters and pose questions there.

(4) Prize: All poster videos will enter a contest. The winning video will be rewarded with a free registration for the next P&G.

(5) Defending your poster: You will have to "stand" by your poster with your avatar in the Underline system (GatherTown) and participant avatars will approach you to open a video conversation (several participants can talk at once with a poster presenter). We will ask that you state the specific dates and times (at least 2 days, at least 2 hours in total) at which you will "stand" by your poster (within poster time slots) for others to visit you.

(6) Networking: There will be lounge areas for you to walk around with your avatar and meet other participants. You can open video conversations with them.
