UPDATED: Presentation Guidelines

The Virtual Format of the 17th ECHA conference will continously offer opportunities present your research results and/or case studies and experiences in several different formats.

All submissions must be made in English via the online submission platform.

We have made some adaptations to the formats and session durations to enhance and presenters and participants experience online;

A group of papers submitted around a common theme. Allowing the presenters 15 minutes each and time for a discussion in the chat channel at the end of the session. Each online symposium will have a total duration of 1hr. The session is moderated by the symposia coordinator.

Individual papers allowing the author/presenter 15 minutes of oral presentation in a session where papers are grouped together around a theme. Authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract. Time will be provided for questions to be placed in a chat channel at the end of the session. The sessions will have the duration of 45 min/1hour.

This is an oral presentation as well but the duration is only 8 minutes and the idea is to provide young researchers an opportunity to present to a larger audience and be seen in the international community of researchers. This sessions would also be for launching of hot topics in a more informal session with a duration of 45 min/1 hour. Authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract. 

The workshop sessions will have the duration of 30 minutes and are hosted by one or two presenters and is thought to provide practical interactive demonstrations and hands-on experiences with research tools and methods for example in, but not limited to, areas of performing or other art forms.

Posters presenting research results and case studies will be placed centrally in the Poster interactive online gallery available to on demand viewing at all times during the conference. Posters will be grouped by theme and authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract as poster. The poster presenters will be given the opportunity to provide a 3 minutes videoclip to present their poster.


Presenters of Oral Communiations and posters are requested to record their presentation and send them to the conference secretariat before the deadline, which will be informed in advance. 

Conference Sessions will also include chairpersons/discussants moderating real-time interactive Q&A between the presenters and assisting participants.

As a large number of participants is expected to attend the sessions, they are encouraged to write their questions online. Questions can be directed publicly (visible for all participants, the session chairperson and the author) or privately in a message to the author/presenter. The session chairperson will place a selection of the public questions (submitted in writing before and during the session), in a live interaction with the presenters who will be present online to respond in real-time. The live Q&A session will take place at the end of each session.
The conference will provide technical support for assisting participants during the whole preparation process. Presenters and chairpersons (as well as discussants when applicable) will also have the opportunity to run tests with the technical team before the event. More specific technical guidelines will be provided to all authors and presenters in advance.
