PLATE 2021 will run over three half-days on a dedicated virtual platform. We have learned a lot about what features work well for virtual conferences in 2020 which we will make sure to integrate into the programme. The conference schedule will be optimized to allow international delegates to fully engage with each other during this online event with a morning start time for the US, lunchtime start for Europe and an evening start for Asia.
The programme will allow you to set up a personalised agenda to include our inspirational keynote speakers, a range of parallel sessions, panel discussions, best paper awards, best student paper awards, networking opportunities, exhibitor video chats, break time quizzes and prizes, well-being classes and entertainment & social sessions.
Delegates will be offered a free workshop on preparing great presentations for virtual environments approximately six weeks in advance of the event. We will facilitate an active participation and work to create the maximum number of opportunities for you to discuss your work and to directly network with the other participants.
