During the Event
On each morning of the symposium, you will receive a reminder that will contain information on how to login into the online platform. It is a good idea to log on 30 minutes or so before the first session, on your first day of logging in, so you can get familiar with the platform, view the Virtual Poster Hall and connect with fellow delegates.
Don't worry if you miss a live session as all of the session recordings will be available to watch on-demand from 12 December 2023 to 6 March 2024.
We encourage you to ask questions throughout the live sessions using the 'Live Q&A' section within each individual session. Questions will be moderated before being placed into the queue. The session hosts will then ask the presenters during the 'Discussion and Questions' section of each session. We will endeavor to answer all of the questions, but this is time dependent.
Posters are available to view on-demand in the Virtual Poster Hall so delegates can "virtually wander around" at any time during the event. There are no live poster sessions for online delegates.
If you experience technical difficulties during the Symposium please use the red 'Support' button in the top right-hand side of the online platform. Our team will be on hand to help troubleshoot any technical difficulties you may be having.
