How to engage with presenters and other BigSurv20 attendees?

  1. All sessions: We have created slack channels for each session to engage with presenters and attendees alike. Simply join the slack channel of the session you are interested in and have fun! And don't forget to explore the other channels around the conference.
  2. Paper/demo sessions: For each session you can either a) attend the Zoom session consisting of the talks and a live Q&A with the presenters during the last 15 minutes of each session and/or b) watch the presentation at your own leisure by clicking on the corresponding link and engage with others via slack. Some presenters have opted to only have their presentation available during the session (i.e., we did not include a link to the recording below) which means you will have to attend the Zoom session to see those.
  3. Poster sessions: Watch those at your own leisure and don't forget to 'Like' your favorite posters by Nov. 20. The poster with the most 'Likes' will win the 'People's Choice Poster Award'. Note that some presenters have opted to only have their poster presentation available on November 20th which means we will take those offline thereafter (these presentations are flagged below so you can prioritize).
