Due to the negative COVID situation in the world, the POAC’21 Conference will be held in the online format. Members of the Local Organizing Committee will participate in the onsite meeting during the Opening ceremony.
The instructions for the online format of the sessions are below:
For speakers: Speakers will present their talks on the Zoom platform. The appropriate links or entrance details will be sent to your emails in advance. We will strongly stick to the timing of sessions and talks according to the Conference program. If someone misses his/her talk, we will keep this time as a pause till the next presentation begins.
For participants: All the participants will have access to the Youtube live translation of the sessions. You may ask the questions in the translation chat; after the presentation, they will be asked. All presentations will be recorded if permission for recording is obtained from the authors. You will have the opportunity to watch recorded presentations if due to some objective reasons (e.g. time-zone difference) you are unable to watch the live broadcast. If you are unable to present your report during the conference for some reason, please contact us! The Local Organizing Committee may run your pre-recorded presentation during the conference as an exception.
For session chairs: You are invited to moderate sessions via the Zoom platform. The technical team of Moscow State University will assist you before and during the sessions. Since all the participants will watch the session presentations via Youtube live translation, you should check and collect the questions to the presenters. After the presentation and if time allows according to the schedule, the convener will be able to deliver questions from the Youtube chat to the speaker.
