The Virtual Format of the 17th ECHA conference will continously offer opportunities present your research results and/or case studies and experiences in several different formats.
All submissions must be made in English via the online submission platform.
We have made some adaptations to the formats and session durations to enhance and presenters and participants experience online;
A group of papers submitted around a common theme. Allowing the presenters 15 minutes each and time for a discussion in the chat channel at the end of the session. Each online symposium will have a total duration of 1hr. The session is moderated by the symposia coordinator.
If the symposium is accepted for presentation at the conference, the authors will be required to pre-record the oral presentation of 12 minutes maximum and the symposium organiser will compile the individual presentations of all authors and send to the organisation. The presentations will be broadcast by the organizer on the scheduled date/timea and there will be a live Q&A slot for the symposium where the presenters will be available to engage in discussion with the participants by answering orally to participants’ questions submitted in writing at the webapp. This Q&A slot will be moderated by the symposium Discussant. Further instructions will be provided to symposium organisers whose proposals have been accepted.
2. ORAL PRESENTATIONS ONLINE
Individual papers allowing the author/presenter 15 minutes of oral presentation in a session where papers are grouped together around a theme. Authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract. Time will be provided for questions to be placed in a chat channel at the end of the session. The sessions will have the duration of 45 min/1hour.
If the paper is accepted for presentation at the conference, the authors will be required to send the pre-recorded oral presentation of 15 minutes maximum. The presenters will be available to engage in discussion with the participants by answering in writing to participants’ questions after the session. Further instructions will be provided to authors whose papers have been accepted.
3. FLASH PRESENTATIONS - YOUNG RESEARCHER FORUM
This is an oral presentation as well but the duration is only 8 minutes and the idea is to provide young researchers an opportunity to present to a larger audience and be seen in the international community of researchers. This sessions would also be for launching of hot topics in a more informal session with a duration of 45 min/1 hour. Authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract.
If the paper is accepted for presentation at the conference, the authors will be required to send the pre-recorded oral presentation of 12 minutes maximum.

Further instructions will be provided to authors whose papers have been accepted.
4. VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS
The workshop sessions will have the duration of 30 minutes and are hosted by one or two presenters and is thought to provide practical interactive demonstrations and hands-on experiences with research tools and methods for example in, but not limited to, areas of performing or other art forms.
If the workshop is accepted for presentation at the conference, the workshop leaders will be required to present the workshop on a live session taking place online using Zoom's platform. wich allow the presenters to engage with the participants. The slot will be moderated by the workshop leaders. Further instructions will be provided to workshop organisers whose proposals have been accepted.
Posters presenting research results and case studies will be placed centrally in the Poster interactive online gallery available to on demand viewing at all times during the conference. Posters will be grouped by theme and authors are requested to select 3 optional themes when submitting their abstract as poster. The poster presenters will be given the opportunity to provide a 3 minutes videoclip to present their poster.

As a large number of participants is expected to attend the sessions, they are encouraged to write their questions online. Questions can be directed publicly (visible for all participants, the session chairperson and the author) or privately in a message to the author/presenter. The session chairperson will place a selection of the public questions (submitted in writing before and during the session), in a live interaction with the presenters who will be present online to respond in real-time. The live Q&A session will take place at the end of each session.
