PLATE 2021 will run over three half-days on a dedicated OnAir virtual platform. We learned a lot about what features work well for virtual conferences in 2020 and have integrated these 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. All times shown in OnAir will be your local time.

The OnAir platform allows you to set up a personalised agenda to include our inspirational keynote speakers, a range of parallel sessions, panel discussions, best student paper awards, networking opportunities, break time quizzes and prizes, well-being classes and entertainment & social sessions.

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. Each day will have two fifteen minute networking breaks where you can be randomly assigned to a virtual coffee break with other PLATE delegates.  On the social side, at the close of business on Day 1 you will have the choice of a yoga session or to join in a fun quiz and Day 2 will wrap up with a short live concert from sensational Limerick nu-folk artist Emma Langford
