All Zoom presentations will be summarised on Twitter and Twitter-only presentations will be tweeted during the Zoom event break (they will not be shared via the Zoom platform).
Twitter is a free and inclusive platform on which to take an event global as, unlike other social media platforms, you don’t even need an account to follow online – from anywhere in the world.
Call for papers
We are now seeking submissions for Twitter presentations.
Deadline for submissions: 30 June 2020.
We are seeking submissions which fit within the conference outline from researchers anywhere in the world who are able to tweet their presentation live in Twitter only presenter slots before, during and after the Zoom Conference.
- Submit here (Twitter presentations only)
Twitter presentation format
The basics are:
- Twitter presentations take the form of six tweets with attached slides/images/videos.
- Each presenter is allocated a 10-minute slot in which to present their research.
- Zoom presenters will present their Twitter summary simultaneous to their Zoom presentation (we will give you detailed guidance on how to do this).
For in-depth rules, guidelines and Twitter presenting tips please see here.
