Languages and timezone of the Conference
The official languages of the Conference will be English and French. All plenaries will be translated simultaneously (voiceover). Parallel sessions will not be translated, and could be either in French or in English (language is noted in the programme :
Visual presentations (i.e. PowerPoint) might be written in a different language than the language spoken, in order to facilitate the understanding of all congressists. For example, if you make your presentation in English, your slides might be in French.
All the hours showed in the programme are CET – Central European Time.
Science&You will take place on a hybrid format: congressists will be able to speak in and to attend the conference either on site or remotely.
All plenaries and parallel sessions will be held at the Conference center, and be broadcasted live on Zoom.
Zoom sessions will be launched from the room dedicated to your session in the Conference center, by the organization team. Technical support will be there to help the speakers and the audience.
Hybrid format implies that for some sessions, speakers might be physically on site, while others will speak from remote. We do our best to assign convenors/moderators who will be physically on site.
On site audience will ask its questions orally, while remote audience will ask its questions in the Zoom chat.
Each registered congressist will receive the programme with all the Zoom links in his inbox a few days prior to the event. It will include all abstracts of the speakers.
Test sessions will be organized for speakers willing to test their presentations (copy-paste the link)
