For Presenters

Major Changes and Notifications

・There will be no online poster session in 2024.

・Flash Talks for Posters-only sessions (sessions without orals) will be set in an independent date and time by the Program Committee.

・Presentation materials for poster Flash Talks must be the e-posters uploaded to the Meeting Participation portal "Confit".

・Oral presentations at the on-site venue are to be given using the presenter's PC. (see HERE for details)


Oral Presentations

●【Principle】 Zoom will be used to broadcast the on-site oral presentation sessions. For oral presentations, presentations can be made on- site or online via Zoom webcast to allow for presentations and participations in both ways.

●【Optional】 "On-demand videos" and "additional materials" can be uploaded separately regardless of your presentation methods, oral presentation on-site or online. Please see HERE for detailed instructions.

● Separate from the presentation materials mentioned above, oral presentations are, in principle, to be given using PowerPoint or other presentation slides prepared by the presenters themselves.

●【Optional】 Presentation materials such as pre-recorded videos may be played during the session (regardless of the player or the method of playback). It is recommended that such video recording be made and uploaded to the Confit as an "On-demand video" or "additional material." By doing so, the chairperson can select the relevant material during the session and play/stream the video, without extra work to collect files from the presenter.


Presentation Method

On-site Participation

●All on-site presenters are required to register for the meeting in advance and make sure that they succeed in logging in to Confit before coming to the venue.

●Presenters are requested to use their own PCs to give a presentation at the venue.
・In order to allow online participants viewing, please make sure that your PC is connected to Zoom via the link posted in the timetable on Confit. There will be a cable for wired LAN connection. If you need extra cables to connect the wired LAN, please bring them yourself. You may also use your own mobile Wi-Fi/portable hotspot device.
A separate PC is provided for projection at the venue, so there is no need to connect a video terminal (HDMI, etc.) cables.
Even if you present on your own PC, it is recommended that you bring your presentation file on a USB in case of any problems.

●If for some reason you cannot use your own PC for your presentation, you may use a PC (Windows 11, PowerPoint available) provided at each presentation room.

●Since presenters will use their own PC, there will be no upload system for on-site oral presentation material for this year.


Online Participation

The Zoom link will be provided on the timetable on the Confit.
*Meeting registration is required to log in to Confit on and after 17 May.


Poster Presentations

●【Required】 Contributors must upload poster materials in their own presentation space on the Confit. E-poster, On-demand video, and additional material can be uploaded. One or more of these will be combined to form the poster presentation material. However, please note that if you upload only additional materials, we may not be able to issue a certificate of presentation. Also, e-posters are to be used for Flash Talks, so please upload your e-posters as much as possible. Please see HERE for detailed instructions.

●There are two presentation opportunities for posters, "Flash Talks in the oral session" and/or "On-site Poster".

If you wish to use a different material such as on-demand videos or additional materials, please let the venue staff know. In any case, please do not forget to upload your materials on Confit.

● For poster-only sessions, flash talks are to be moderated by the conveners in the designated date and time. Please refer to the schedule-at-a-glance for the time and venue.

● The flash talks are not a prerequisite for approval as a formal presentation, but are encouraged unless there are unavoidable circumstances that flash talks cannot be given.
