Conference Posters

Conference posters will be hosted on ‘Gathertown’ – an interactive open-plan virtual conference area where you will be able to virtually walk around, inspect, and interact with poster presenters. This session will only be live between 1500-1700 GMT. A link will be sent to delegates to join. Please accept permissions to share your camera and mic for the full interactive experience. It is recommended this platform is run with Google Chrome.

There is a limit on the number of attendees in Gathertown at a given time. While not expected to be an issue, in the event of slow performance during the 1500-1700 GMT slot, please wait 15min and try joining again.

Please see FAQ for further information
