Poster sessions & Q&A

Poster sessions:

Poster presenters will be assigned a specific poster session during which they will be asked to be available to ‘stand’ at their posters located in the Gather.town platform, to take part in the interactive poster session.  Poster presenters and delegates will be able to discuss the poster via video chat while viewing the poster.

When a poster presenter is not in the virtual poster hall (due to time zone issues, other commitments, or different poster session), the poster pdf, short video and abstract will be available in the virtual Underline platform for attendees to browse and review. Questions can be left in the Underline platform for poster presenters.

Virtual Talk Presentation Guidelines:

All submitted talks will be pre-recorded in advance and scheduled in the program at specified times, with live Q&A following each talk.  These pre-recorded videos will also be available on-demand, both in advance of the live session and post conference.  The aim of this set-up is to minimise stress and technical issues, while still providing opportunities for open dialogue and flexible viewing options.

Please note: All sessions will be closed captioned, so it is best if you are presenting information in your PowerPoint slides, that you leave room on the bottom of the slides for captioning.  Ideally, leave the bottom ¼ of your slide blank for this purpose, if possible.  The presenting author will have the opportunity to review the captioning file to ensure correct terms are used.  The captioning file will be sent directly to the presenting author approximately one week following the upload deadline.

Each individual talk for CogSci 2021 will be required to upload the following by June 22, 2021:

  • 15 minute (max) pre-recorded video presentation (with or without slides)
    • Closed captioning: All sessions will be closed captioned.  If you are presenting with slides, please leave the bottom ¼ of your slide blank for this purpose
  • Optional supplementary material (slide deck/graphs & charts) as a pdf
  • Title and submission number
  • Bio and head shot

Symposia Presentation Guidelines:
