Virtual event, Worldwide : 16 - 17 February 2021
At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion, and our virtual events are no exception.
Here are some of the features you can look forward to at the EACR Virtual Conference 'Defence is the Best Attack':
Wednesday 17 February, 12:30-14:00 CET
"The best e-poster experience I've ever had since the pandemic happened" is how a recent participant described our 90-minute Poster Discussion Session!
Participants are invited to join us in Gather, which is accessed through a web browser using a unique URL you will be sent by email. You can control your character to walk around the retro 2D virtual poster hall. Poster presenters can stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers over video chat or message.
You can personalise your avatar to look more like you, search for other participants by name, and even gather in groups for informal chat.
An online abstract book will be available for logged-in participants to browse and click in to view each virtual poster at any time during the conference.
Wednesday 17 February, 17:50-18:50 CET
Members of the conference Scientific Programme Committee: Karin de Visser, Johanna Joyce, Joan Seoane and Jedd Wolchok, will discuss topics raised in the conference talks over the previous two days.
This will be a forum for open discussion. Participants are invited to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.
Conference participants will be sent a list of the attendees who opted-in to sharing their details. You can use this list to contact fellow conference goers to start a discussion about their presentation, abstract or maybe a question they asked during a talk.
Follow us on Twitter for updates @EACRnews and engage with the conference with #eacrImmunoOncology. You could use this to promote your virtual poster, to comment on a talk you enjoyed or to continue the discussion with other participants.
The experience of being in the poster hall as an avatar was great, I really loved it! It is amazing what is technically possible.
Easiliy connecting with others when literally standing next so someone gave it a real-life touch. I had nice chats with colleagues and friends and met new interesting people.
All in one, the best e-poster experience I've ever had since the pandemic happened.
