Presenter Guidance

Oral presentations will be 6 minutes, plus 2 minutes Q&A.

There will be 6 oral presentations in each session. Presentations have been grouped together based on a common theme. The total session will last 60 minutes, with 12 minutes allocated for group discussion after the formal presentations have been streamed.

Oral presenters are required to submit their pre-recorded presentation by 3rd August 2020. We recommend you use Zoom to pre-record your presentation. Further advice on technical specifications will be available in due course. If you are unable to record your presentation or are having difficulties please email keta@each.eu.

Pre-recording your presentation will reduce internet connection disruptions during the conference. Please note that all oral presenters are still required to attend the live session to respond to questions and take part in the live discussion.

Poster sessions are designed for focussed interaction between presenters and participants.  All posters will be presented as viewable JPEG or PDF files via the online platform.  Posters can be viewed at any time, and the online platform will enable written questions to be submitted.  Designated time for poster viewing will also be allocated within the conference programme.  We would advise that poster authors are online during the poster sessions (time zones permitting) as there are likely to be a higher volume of questions submitted to authors during this time.

Poster presenters are required to submit their poster in JPEG/PDF format by 3rd August 2020.  Further file specifications will be available in due course.

In addition, presenters have the option to submit a 1-2 minute oral pitch, further explaining their abstract.  Poster presenters are required to submit their oral pitch by 3rd August 2020.  We recommend you use Zoom to pre-record your presentation.  Further advice on technical specifications will be available in due course.  If you are having difficulties recording your pitch, please email keta@each.eu.

Using online Zoom conferencing technology, session presenters will be able to engage session attendees through screen sharing PowerPoint slides, videos and other materials. Interactive features such as breakout rooms, polling and chat functions will also be available, with full technical support throughout your session.  Further details will be made available in due course and a short training session to familiarise yourself with the software will be provided in advance of the conference.

Workshops should follow the plan outlined during the submissions process.  Workshops must be interactive, experiential, educational sessions.  The amount of didactic presentation should be considerably limited.  Workshop participants should be expected to actively contribute and be given the opportunity to practice ideas and skills.  Through conference workshops we are keen to promote experiential learning through application, practice, feedback and peer interaction.

Workshops may focus on research methods, teaching strategies, or other skill building.  Workshops should enable participants to apply the skills acquired in the workshop in their own institutional contexts.

The total session time will be 90 minutes.

Symposia are designed to capture a coherent set of 3-5 individual presentations that centre on one theme.  An important asset of a symposium is that it places individual experiences or research results in a broader context and allows time for interaction between the presenters and discussion amongst the group.

Symposia should comprise an introduction and a maximum of 5 presentations and a minimum of 3.

Symposia presenters are required to submit their pre-recorded presentations by 3rd August 2020.  We recommend you use Zoom to pre-record your presentation.  Further advice on technical specifications will be available in due course.  If you are unable to record your presentations or are having difficulties please email keta@each.eu.

Works in progress sessions are designed to enable early career participants including students, trainees, and junior faculty to submit oral presentations to the conference.  The session will enable these participants to present work on ongoing research projects which may not have results available.  The format will enable those presenting their work to obtain feedback from the audience on their work so far.

The format will be a 7-minute presentation followed by 8 minutes discussion.  Presenters will be limited to 7 PowerPoint slides.  There will be multiple presentations in each session that have been grouped together based on a common theme.

Each presenter will identify what feedback he/she would like from the audience at the start of the presentation and this will guide brief discussion at the end of the presentation.  The presenters will also obtain confidential feedback from the session chair at the end of the session on his/her presentation skills.

Work in Progress presenters are required to submit their pre-recorded presentation by 3rd August 2020.  We recommend you use Zoom to pre-record your presentation.  Further advice on technical specifications will be available in due course.  If you are unable to record your presentation or are having difficulties please email keta@each.eu.

Creative Arts allow for more playful and artistic presentation of the conference topics. Creative Arts are particularly suitable for the subject of Communication because they provide the opportunity to see something a little differently – a new and perhaps provocative or idiosyncratic approach to healthcare communication. Inventive methods are used, for example brief theatre pieces, puppetry, innovative exercises, poetry or narrative.

The length of each Creative Arts session will be either 15 or 30-minutes.  Multiple Creative Arts will be grouped together to make up a 60-minute session.

The total session time will be 60-minutes.

Roundtable Discussions are gatherings of individuals with similar interests and needs for sharing ideas and/or resources or to initiate or continue collaborative work.  Roundtable Discussions provide opportunities for open discussion and creativity in a more informal and less structured setting.
