Online platform

To reduce connectivity risk on the day your 30-minutes presentation will be pre-recorded. The Conference Company will arrange a recording session with you in February 2021. You will be required to join the online platform, share your powerpoint presentation and present your session. 

This pre-recording will also provide an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the platform.

The recording will be played at the allocated time within the Symposium. You will join the session online on the day to participate in a live Q&A session with the moderator.

To prepare for the session please use the PowerPoint template slide below:
