What will the virtual experience be like?

posted on 8:59 AM, October 21, 2021

The primary difference between in-person and virtual attendance is that virtual attendees will not be able to attend in-person social events like the President’s Reception. Virtual attendees will have access to a livestream of all plenary sessions as well as on-demand recordings of these sessions after the event. Virtual attendees watching the livestream will be able to submit questions via a Q&A feature, but they will not be able to speak directly to the presenters. When it comes to posters, the experience will be the same for both in-person and virtual attendees as there will be no in-person authors with posters session. All posters will be hosted in an eGallery (same format as the fully virtual 2021 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting) where attendees can view the poster as well as hear an audio recording of the author presenting their research.
