Below are instructions for neuromatch conference.
We accept submissions for short talk, contributed talk, and poster session for the conference. The submission button is located under your log-in profile. Below, you can see an instruction on how you submit your abstracts.
Short talks occur in parallel sessions. They are 12 minutes long followed by 3 minutes for questions.
Contributed talks are featured in the main session. They are 18 minutes long followed by 4 minutes questions. If you submit a contributed talk but your talk is not selected, you will be invited to present a short talk or poster presentation instead.
Poster session is organized the same way as in physical space. However, we will have a centralized page on our website for people to search and visit your uploaded poster, recorded talk, and individual Zoom. We will provide the presentation slots for poster submission. All the poster submissions will be automatically accepted! You can see the virtual poster session here.
For short and contributed talks, after the review process, we will send you a confirmation email and a link to fill your talk slot. For the poster session, you can visit virtual poster page to update your poster URLs including Zoom (for discussion during the poster session), recorded talk, and slides.
The main conference is happening on May 25 - 27, 2020. The main talks during the conference will be run on Crowdcast, which requires no installation of software. Parallel sessions will also be running on Crowdcast where each parallel session will be listed with the same start time.
During each of the conference talks you can ask questions. Even better, we can switch you on stage to ask your question in person. During the talks we will also keep open a Google Docs file for clarification questions that the audience can ask.
As an online conference, we can run any number of parallel tracks. You can submit your abstract by going to submission page under your profile during submission period. If you are selected as a speaker, please consult Crowdcast setup page to prepare before you're giving the talk.
We run the whole conference with only a handful of people and there is always room for help. You can help us in multiple ways including hosting parallel sessions, managing talk slots, reviewing abstract submissions. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help us. We will contact you after the registration.

Please make coordinate and make sure you can make it to the session during the conference.
