HOW THE CONGRESS WORKS
HOW THE CONGRESS WORKS
A sneak-peak to the STI&HIV2021 congress starting July 1st!
For obvious reasons, the format of the congress will be different from previous versions. The online congress platform will open July 1st. You can visit and delve into over 500 recorded presentations and e-posters from world leading scientists, community key persons and clinicians with an interest in the latest developments in STI & HIV research. To ease navigation there is a search function to create your own selections based on topic, abstract number, speaker and sessions.
This means that you can already start and watch all keynote lectures, symposia, and workshops starting July 1st!
If you have questions or comments for the presenters, you can use a chat function and they will respond to you. You can also start to interact with all other participants via chat.
This online congress platform will also be the portal to the live events that will start July 14th. We have a lineup of talk shows on a variety of topics, debates, and an opening session that you do not want to miss!
On the landing page of the platform, you will find a new video clip daily that might be of interest to you. Last but not least, don’t forget to visit our sponsors in their virtual booths!
Providing Your Poster
Presenters will have the following opportunities to present their research and communicate with attendees:
- provide a one-page Poster PDF that can be published as supplemental material to the abstract.
- submit a three-minute recorded presentation.
- participate in discussion with attendees through our congress platform (chat).
Presenters are highly encouraged to fulfill all three options to best facilitate a robust and dynamic virtual Poster Session. Presenters MUST provide at least a Poster PDF, and preferable a 3-minute video.
Submission Deadline: 25 June 2021
Poster PDF Requirements
All poster presenters should provide a one-page Poster PDF.
Although any dimensions can be used, remember that attendees will be viewing posters on their computer screens. We recommend posters to be readable without zoom when displayed at full-screen width.
If that’s not possible, because of all the information you want to include, please use Portrait format, with a height maximum of 2x the screen size, so scrolling is only necessary from top to bottom, but NOT from left to right.
Please put your abstract ID (e.g., P012) on the top right corner of the poster.
The three-minute video must be made in PowerPoint (via Record slide show), and is limited to no more than 4 slides. No live presentations will be given, but we encourage real-time engagement through our congress platform where you will be able to directly correspond (chat) with attendees.
