Camera-ready abstract

We ask authors of accepted abstracts to provide a camera-ready abstract until 20 June. Please un-anonymise your abstract, i.e. add your name(s) and affiliation(s). If possible, make use of our templates provided here. Please note that at this stage it is not an issue if your abstract exceeds the one-page limit. To upload your revised camera-ready abstract, follow these steps:

  • Log in at and navigate to your submission, open it.
  • Then, click the “Revision” button. This will take you to a new page.
  • On this page, upload the PDF version of your camera-ready abstract.
  • Next, add your “signature” by selecting it from the dropdown menu.
  • Finally, click the “Submit” button.

Please let us know if you run into any technical issues.


At least one author of each accepted talk/poster is asked to register until 20 June. We assume that talks/posters without at least one registered author after 20 June are withdrawn.

Authors of accepted talks and posters are asked to indicate their authorship and their contribution’s title during the registration process. We encourage speakers to partake in person, but also accept registrations for online participation.

Please take into account that posters potentially will be available in only one modality, i.e. if you partake in person, your poster will be available to all in person participants; if you partake online, your poster will be available to all online participants.


Talks will have 20-minute-slots, with ca. 15 minutes for the presentation itself and ca. 5 minutes for Q&A. Presenters may use their own laptop (please bring your own adapters!) or the laptop provided by the organisers to present their slides.

All in person and online talks will be livestreamed via Zoom for registered participants. We will not record any talks. For online talks, we try to accommodate time zone differences as much as possible.


Posters will be presented in two dedicated sessions.

In person posters: We recommend bringing your poster in DIN A0 portrait format (84.1 x 118.9 cm), but smaller formats are also possible. There is no need to submit a digital version of your poster in advance. But you will have to print the posters yourselves. If you do not want to carry your printed posters with you, there are also some copy shops in Düsseldorf that offer poster printing.

Online posters: The online poster session(s) will take place on Zoom. Each poster will be presented in its individual breakout room with the presenter present. The audience will freely move between poster breakout rooms. As digital files are easy to navigate, we do not regulate the format of online posters. However, please do not turn your online poster into a (lengthy) slide show.

Bringing online & offline together: The in person audience will attend the online poster session as a group. Offline posters will not be made available to online participants.

Formatting/design: While there are no specific formatting requirements, we encourage following design approaches which make use of little text. For inspiration, have a look here.
