Presentation instruction

Please present in English. Presentation time will be notified in the e-mail of notification of acceptance.

Oral presentation (In-person)
Please prepare a computer compatible with HDMI output. The computer will be connected to a streaming device via HDMI cable and your slide show will be broadcasted to a venue screen and Zoom (therefore, in-person presenters do not need to install Zoom client on the computer).

Please avoid using optical laser pointers because the pointer will not be broadcasted to Zoom. Please use software laser pointer functions (e.g. laser pointer of MS PowerPoint) instead of them. We will also prepare Logicool SPOTLIGHT PRESENTATION REMOTE (driver installation is required).

Oral presentation (Virtual)
Please prepare a computer compatible with Zoom. Your slide show, video, and voice will be broadcasted to the venue and Zoom. Therefore, virtual presenters need to install Zoom client on the computer.

Poster presentation (In-person only)
Please prepare a poster of A0 size (vertical orientation). Posters will be pinned by thumbtacks (the committee will prepare).

Poster presenters only who agree with their posters are distributed to virtual participants will submit their poster data (PDF).
