You will be able to upload your video from your ECSS Account using the upload system of the congress. The platform will open on 15 September and close on 5 October. We will remind you again via our ECSS newsletter.
Your video will be played to the audience during the congress at an allocated time. Unfortunately, there will be no Q&A.
Your video will be accessible to all registered participants through their ECSS account until the end of 2020.
Instructions (“how-to-record-a-video”) and tips for creating a video will be available on the congress website soon.

The size of the Conventional Print Poster is A0 (height: 120 cm, width 90 cm). The poster format is ‘portrait’ (i.e. vertical). The video length is a maximum of 3 minutes and should show the speaker presenting a maximum of 3 slides of their work in PowerPoint (or similar) format. Animation is not permitted.

The platform will open on 15 September and close on 5 October.
