- The Session Chair will select and ask the questions during the Q&A session. We understand that there maybe not time to ask all the questions. The Chair will make sure to ask complementary questions and hopefully according to the time they were first submitted.
- The Chair will have the ability to unmute participants if this is needed to elaborate on their questions Please note that due to the limited Q&A duration, participants may want to continue their discussion with the author(s) off-line.
- A channel will be available if the paper author and attendees want to have a further conversation following the Q&A.
Submitting a Proposal for a Full Panel
You may submit a proposal for a full panel, which includes a moderator and 3 to 4 panelists addressing a common topic relevant to the call.

The conference committee welcomes contributions from individuals and organizations working in the field. These contributions can take the form of a presentation or a demonstration. In the first instance, an abstract should be submitted describing the work to be presented.
Researchers are invited to submit current projects which are either at the proposal stage or are work in progress to present as a Poster. Posters will be available for viewing for the duration of the conference. There will be a timetabled slot for contributors to be available for live-chat so that participants can discuss the research.
THE POSTER MUST BE ONE PAGE AND IN ENGLISH.
You can create your poster using PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Canva, or any other appropriate program. Poster dimensions are as follows: The maximum width is 48 inches (130 cm); the maximum height is 36 inches (100 cm).

A SHORT VIDEO MUST ACCOMPANY THE POSTER.
The video should capture the author explaining the poster in 5 minutes or fewer. The video is designed to capture the experience of an in-person poster session.
