For people residing in countries where travel/health restrictions will prevent them from joining in person in Paris at the time of the conference, virtual options will be available for presenting and viewing the conference content. All authors of accepted papers, regardless if participating in-person or virtually, are required to present.

  • A traditional on-site poster session accessible to in-person participants. The maximum size for the posters if 100 cm (width) by 200 cm (height). There is no poster template.
  • A virtual poster session accessible from the conference virtual platform, accessible to both in-person and virtual participants.


  • Both in-person and virtual participants are required to upload a PDF version of their poster, that will be accesible to all participants via the conference virtual platform. The submission deadline is April 1st, 2022, please follow the instructions below.
  • Finalist of the student poster competition are required to present their poster to the jury in the virtual platform at a time that will be specified. In-person students will also be able to present their poster on site.

Oral presentations

If authors are unable to present in person, they will have the opportunity to present live via Zoom, or upload a pre-recorded video of their paper presentation. Presenting live via Zoom is highly encouraged, and will provide the most benefits to both authors and attendees.

Authors who intend to present their talk on-site or live via Zoom do not have to upload a video of their presentation before the conference. Their talk will be recorded live by our technical staff and will be available on the virtual platform for virtual attendees

Authors choosing to upload a pre-recorded video still have to be present via Zoom at the physical session time in order answer questions from the audience. The pre-recorded presentation should be comprised of a brief introduction with webcam, if desired, followed by voice over slides for your presentation. In order for the technical program committee to verify your videos and approve it for publication in the virtual conference platform, you MUST finalize and submit your video no later than April 1st, 2022.
