Types of Contributions and Submission

When you want to submit a contribution via ConfTool, you need to specify the type of your contribution (oral presentation or poster), select the topic (a list of available topics can be found here) and upload an abstract (up to 400 words).

The deadline for submission is 20.12.2020.  You will be informed about the program committee’s decision in January 2021. When your contribution is accepted, you will be asked to upload a final version of your presentation slides (pdf or pptx) resp. of your poster (png or jpg).

Poster files will be used to set up a virtual poster exhibition. Presentation files only serve as a backup to ensure smooth online sessions in case of technical problems.

Oral presentations

Oral presentations will take place live as part of a topical Zoom session.

For invited presentations a 40 minutes time slot is reserved, while contributed presentations receive time slots of 20 minutes each (15 min. presentation + 5 min. discussion).

Presenters can participate in a technical test before the conference. Test sessions will be announced in due time.

Oral presentations can be given either in English (preferred) or German. Abstracts must be submitted in the same language as the presentation. The presentation slides (final version) should be written in English.


Posters will be accessible by all participants in our virtual conference building (see a Demo room here). In addition, the program features fixed poster sessions where the authors have the chance to present their posters live at their virtual poster stand.

Abstracts can be submitted in German or English (preferred). The poster (final version) should be written in English and uploaded in portrait format for better readability.
