Flash Poster Presentations (FP)

New for WMS 2022 are Flash Poster Presentations. These are an exciting opportunity for those selected, to present to an informal audience during the Poster Sessions. You will have been notified in your Abstract Notification Email if you were selected for one of these.

We will have designated presentation platforms/corners in amongst the posters area. Each one will have large digital screens to display the presentation, a lectern and microphone. The audience will gather round on informal seating to listen to the presentations for ~30 minutes of each Poster Session. When these presentations are finished, all Poster Presenters for that session (not just Flash Poster Presenters) will then stand by their traditional printed poster for the rest of the session to discuss their poster with attendees.

A designated Moderator/s will moderate the Flash Presentation sessions. Each abstract will be presented with a slide presentation of 5 minutes, where 3 minutes are designated for your presentation and 2 minutes for discussion with the chairperson and audience. There are several presentations per session. You are requested to be present at your platform screen during the entire Flash Poster session.

In addition to the scheduled sessions, you will be able to show your presentation to your colleagues throughout the entire congress at the traditional poster boards, designated e-poster screens as well as using the congress app. We request that a traditional physical poster be made available for display at the poster board area in addition to your Flash Presentation.

Preparing your Flash Presentation

Presenting at the Congress

Please arrive at the presentation area at least 15 minutes before the overall poster session starts to allow the AV team to check that your presentation is loaded correctly and the microphone is working etc.

There are strictly scheduled slots for all presentations at the congress. Session Moderators are at liberty to cut off any presentation that exceeds the given time frame to maintain the congress schedule. 
At the beginning of the scheduled timeslot of the session, the session Moderator will open the session and introduce the speakers. After each 3-minute presentation, 2 minutes are reserved for discussion with the Moderator and audience to complete the 5-minute presentation slot. All participants are encouraged to contribute to the session and ask questions. The Moderator will take the last minutes to address any final questions and formally close the session. Presenters and Moderators are kindly asked to be present for the entire session to which the abstract was accepted to ensure interaction with the audience.

When these presentations are finished, all Poster Presenters for that session (not just Flash Poster Presenters) will then stand by their traditional printed poster for the rest of the session to discuss their poster with attendees.

If a poster has been selected for a Flash Poster Presentation, then the FP .xx reference is also the poster board reference number.

Moderators Information

The Moderator for each topic will introduce the moderator for the next topic group. Time keeping is crucial to the success of these sessions.
