Presentation Guidelines

Oral presentation guidelines

DehaloCon III is scheduled as a hybrid conference. There will be a face-to-face conference as well as online elements integrated into the programme for both in-person and virtual session attendees. Oral presentations are limited to a maximal duration of 20 minutes (15 minutes talk + 5 minutes questions and answers). Virtual session attendees will be able to join online presentations at scheduled times to pose questions and interact with authors and other delegates. All oral presentations will be preregistered and displayed on demand.

E-poster presentation guidelines

Each poster presenter will get an individual virtual meeting room for 5 minutes to present and discuss the outputs of the study during the daily e-poster session. Each poster session will be led by moderators.

A list of the presentations (title, time and virtual meeting room) will be available during the conference. Attendees will be able to enter the dedicated room in order to discuss the results and ask questions directly to authors.

Exhibitors will also get this opportunity to present themselves (e.g., short webinar followed by Q&A sessions, etc.).
