This year’s new online Conference format means the approach to presentations will look different from previous years. The Conference will be coordinated through a Mobile App. Please find below details on the structure of sessions and the format of presentations. Please see the Speaker Guidelines for more details on how to present on the day.
Still have some tech questions? Check out our regularly updated Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Please note that all times in the program are in AEST (Sydney/Melbourne) time - please check the program and use the World Clock on the App to convert the time to your local area.
You will present your work during a concurrent session at the Conference, hosted on the Zoom platform. You will need a microphone and camera.
The session will run for one hour and have four presenters. The session will run as follows:
This is a different style to a usual conference. This is to ensure more interaction with delegates who are sitting at home watching the Conference.
You must submit your poster to the AAAPC by 6 August.
At the conference
All posters will be available in the Conference App for the duration of the conference. Your poster can be easily searched via the App. Delegates will be able to view your poster, give a score out of 5 stars, and email you directly about your work (to the email address you provided on submission of your work). Delegates will be able to download your poster in PDF format (if you allow them to do so - you can nominate this when uploading your poster). You can track statistics on the number of views and downloads for your poster within the App.
Presenting your poster at the conference
Posters will also be presented during one of two poster sessions. You will have the opportunity to display your poster and give an "elevator pitch" about your work using the Zoom platform. To take advantage of this, please ensure you have a microphone and camera enabled for the Conference. You will have a strict maximum of two minutes to speak about your work - please practice prior to the Conference and get feedback on your pitch from a colleague.
After the pitches, poster presenters will be asked questions by delegates and have the opportunity to explain their work in more detail in breakout discussion rooms. You will also need a microphone and camera for this.
You will have 60 minutes for your workshop, hosted on the Zoom platform.
To make sure your workshop runs smoothly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your workshop by 31 July.
