Step 3 – Question and Answer Sessions
Throughout the conference, poster presenters will have the opportunity to communicate with conference attendees via the chat function or private messaging available on the event platform or via email. Poster presenters will only need to be present on the platform when it is convenient to them and will be able to respond to chat messages and emails as they are able.

The poster image, abstract, and video will be easy to locate, and attendees will be able to click on a link to go to the live poster session taking place on 15 October 2021.
Poster presenters will also be asked to be available, if possible, for an interactive poster session taking place on Friday, 15 October 2021 from 12:15-1:45 PM EDT. This will take place in Zoom. Posters will be set up in groups by focal area, and you will be assigned to one of three 30-minute sessions. The link will be available to attendees in the schedule, and they will be able to choose the break-out group to attend. A moderator will facilitate questions during the session. If you agree to have your poster included for this interactive poster session, you will be asked to stay in that session for the duration of the 30-minute timeframe assigned to you. The interactive session is not a part of poster judging.
