Before Presenting

BAS2021 Secretariat will send out a Zoom link to the corresponding authors and moderators at least 48h before the Congress. Check the link and join the session at least 15 minutes before. Due to the tight schedule, we encourage all the presenters to test everything before going live.
Make sure that:

  • You can be heard;
  • You can see and You can be seen;
  • You have the ability to share your screen.

All sessions will be streamed, recorded and available for later watching (3 months after the Congress) to BAS2021 attendees. If you have any questions, you need to speak to the moderator or assistant before the session.

Time allocated for your presentation

We strongly advise you to check the time and date and also duration of your presentation shortly before the Congress, since slight changes might still apply. Presenters are required to adhere to the time allotted to them. To check the duration of your talk, you need to go to program timetable and click on your presentation (see the image below), since the time from one to another presentation includes also the time for Q/A & discussion.

Access to virtual platform

Authors will receive the access and instructions for the virtual platform until 21 May. This will automatically assure authors' registration to BAS2021 and no additional registration is required. In the platform presenting author's profile will be synchronised with the session agenda.


By presenting your work, you agree to having it published on the BAS2021 virtual platform and freely accessible to all participants. Please note that your presentation will be accessible from the virtual platform during and 3 months after the conference to all participants of the Virtual Congress.
