 Online implementation

(Updated on March 03, 2022)

We use the conference platform SCOOCS to host the conference as an online event. The oral sessions will be held in Zoom meetings that are integrated into the platform. By attending the conference, you agree to the use of these tools. Recording of the event or parts of it is not permitted. There will be no recording of the conference by the organizer. Access information to the conference platform will be provided to all registrants via email a few days before the start of the event (presumably March 18, 2022).

Contributors to the conference agree to give their oral or poster presentation virtually. Poster authors upload their posters to the platform themselves. They will receive access to the conference platform approximately 2 weeks before the start of the event. Technical support is available if required.

The conference platform with all published content (e.g. posters, list of participants) is available for registered conference participants for a period of 4 weeks after the event.
