The SAIP2021 conference will be completely virtual. In order to maximize virtual engagement, minimize any potential connectivity issues, and optimize the virtual conference environment, the LOC has decided to use the following conference formats:
The zoom platform will be used for oral sessions. Normal contributed oral presentations will be allocated 15 minutes (12 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for discussion and/or questions). We will make use of 12 minute pre-recorded videos combined with a live 3 minute Q&A session. Oral presenters should upload, by 9 July 2021, a video of their presentation on the indico system. Details regarding the upload process will follow in due course.
In order to provide an engaging and interactive virtual poster session for SAIP 2021, the LOC has decided to make use of the https://gather.town/ platform for the poster sessions. In addition, we have decided to set aside a full day for the poster sessions to maximize engagement. We will request that the poster presenter upload, by 9 July 2021, a high resolution pdf file of their poster on the indico system. The submission of a short video summary, for poster presenters, is therefore not a requirement anymore. Details regarding the upload process will follow in due course.
