Following the ISIPTA tradition, every paper and poster-abstract will be presented twice. First in a plenary session, and then in a discussion session. Plenary presentations are brief and are not followed by questions by the audience. Questions and more detailed interactions are reserved for the discussion sessions, where authors will be available to discuss their paper or abstract with the help of electronic posters and any other supplementary material they might wish to use. Author instructions for the plenary and poster presentations are available belobw.

Plenary presentations

See the following video showing hot to create your talk in Researchers.One.

Plenary presentations will be virtual, and are hosted by Researchers.One. Instructions for speakers on how to create and manage their virtual talk (upload title, abstract, and supplementary files) will be sent in a separate invitation email directly from the Researchers.One system. The time assigned for the presentations is:

  • 10 min. for long and short papers.
  • 2 min. for poster-abstracts.

Researchers.One will allow authors to upload a pdf of their presentation slides and pre-recorded videos of their talks. If a technical issue arises at the start of a live presentation, and a pre-recorded video is available, we will use this as a back-up option. They could also be useful for participants having difficulties in attending some plenary sessions due to time zone differences.

Presentations at the discussion sessions

In addition to being presented plenary, all accepted papers and poster-abstracts will also be presented as a poster during the discussion session that follows their plenary session. These discussion sessions will take place in the virtual space You will be able to access the Gather space for ISIPTA 2021 in advance, so you can familiarise yourself with it before the start of the conference.

Since the posters will be presented virtually, we advise that you design them to fit a computer screen; so landscape is the best option. Other formats are allowed as well though. Participants will be able to scroll through the posters and zoom in to check details. Also, take into account that if you use too small fonts, then you will force people to use the zoom extensively and therefore only see a part of the poster.

In order to prepare the poster sessions in the Gather space, we will need a pdf file of your poster. The presentation itself will be done with a .jpg file that we will create from the pdf file. In our tests we have seen that an A1 landscape format produces good results. The pdf file should be uploaded to your Researchers.One space by June 28th in order to allow us to produce the required files in time for you to check them in the Gather space before the start of the conference.

During the poster sessions, in addition to your poster, you will also be able to share your screen to show additional material (demonstrate software, use a virtual drawing board, …)
