INSTRUCTIONS FOR E-POSTER PRESENTERS
Deadline for uploading e-Posters: 17 February 2021
Presenters were provided with a dedicated link for uploading their files. Please contact the Congress Secretariat if you have not received it.
WSAVA/FECAVA E-Posters will be available in the e-poster gallery of the virtual Congress platform. There is no dedicated time for presenting them.
WSAVA/FECAVA participants can view e-posters at any time during and after the Congress for up to 3 months and may contact the presenters directly via the virtual platform, for questions and further discussions.
E-poster presenters are requested to upload their 1-page .pptx e-poster, which will be added to the WASAVA/FECAVA e-poster gallery (in .pdf) for viewing, a short 3-5 minute audio to go along with their e-poster in the gallery and a personal URL for further discussions.

If you wish, you may use a template that can be downloaded here.
Language: All E-Posters should be prepared in English.

Networking opportunities for e-poster presenters
E-Poster presenters are asked to include a URL, linking to their own personal or institutional e-meeting rooms, where they can then meet other delegates face to face during the meeting (not mandatory). Zoom and other e-meeting services offer owners the ability to schedule one time meetings or “recurring meetings” with one fixed URL. Presenters are asked to include their availability to be online at their chosen virtual room. The URL and availability fields will be available inside the personal E-Poster area. The presenter takes responsibility for these third-party links and WSAVA/FECAVA Congress is unable to monitor them. Group chat channels may be found in the networking lounge for each abstract topic where participants and presenters can join a public dialogue.
Messaging E-Poster presenters
Messages can be sent directly to the presenter’s email by clicking the envelope icon.
By uploading your E-Poster and audio file, you agree to have it published in the official Congress publications and on the WSAVA/FECAVA virtual platform and society website for the duration of 3 months following the WSAVA/FECAVA Virtual Congress.
If you are not willing to share the presentation for 3 months on the platform, please inform the secretariat by 15 March 2021 and your presentation will be removed after 24 March 2021.
WSAVA/FECAVA enforces a strict zero-tolerance for illegal copying of content presented via the virtual WSAVA/FECAVA Virtual platform (see Code of Conduct). Presenters are encouraged to clearly indicate in their presentations that the content presented shall not be shared or copied.
Presenters should clearly indicate whether or not photography/recording of the poster, presentation and sharing/remixing of the material is permitted. To aid in this process, a digital graphic image may be incorporated in the poster. The images are available here: Click to download
