COVID-19 Information

Currently there are no travel restrictions in Ireland regarding COVID-19. Further information about COVID-19 can be found on the HSE website. Mask wearing inside the venue is optional.

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 during the week of the conference please do the following:

  1. Use a rapid antigen test or PCR test to confirm whether or not you have contracted the virus. Repeat your antigen test daily. 

  2. If your test result is positive, self-isolate in your room until the time when you have a negative test result and your symptoms are gone. 

  3. If your first test result is negative, but you have mild cold symptoms with no fever, you are permitted to attend the conference but must wear a face mask and test yourself using a rapid antigen test daily, until your symptoms are gone.

Information for Oral Presenters
 

  • All presentations are allocated a timeslot, please present in the order in which presentations are listed. 

  • Parallel sessions: the parallel session presenters have 10-12 minutes to present and + up to 5 minutes for Q&A. The total time allowed per presenter is 15 minutes. Adhering to time demonstrates respect for all delegates and presenters, and the session Chairs will support the presenters to adhere to this maximum time. 

  • You must bring your presentation (if using slides or audio) on a pen drive/USB stick and open your file from this. You're welcome to check this during the break/s before your session. There is a computer (PC) in all rooms. It is not possible to use your own laptops as this will result in technical difficulties due to hardware and software security at the conference site. Please note that there are no Macintosh computers available, so if your presentation is created using a Mac, you should check that the format is maintained when using a PC.

  • Supported presentation formats are PowerPoint (format 16:9) or PDF.

  • Please note that presentations should be given in English only.

  • You should be in the room 5 minutes before the start of your session. Please use this time also to locate and identify yourself to the Student Volunteer/s at your session. They can assist in loading your presentation to the computer if needed.

 
Information for Posters
 
The poster sessions are on Friday and Saturday, from 10:30 – 11:30 pm. Poster sessions are chaired, and the Chair will guide the session, to ensure each person in the poster grouping has a few minutes to share something about their research. The Chaired element will be timed to allow all presenters a spotlight for their work, as well as time for extended discussion with people following the chaired element. Presenters are expected to be next to their poster for discussion with conference attendees. 

 
General Guidelines
 

  • Poster size = A0 (841 x 1189 mm, or 33,1 x 46,8 inches)

  • Each poster must be in PORTRAIT format, printed and should not be bigger than AO (0.841 m width x 1.189 m height/tall). Any poster printed in landscape or larger than AO may not be able to be displayed at the conference. We recommend that posters are printed on paper, as cloth does not sufficiently attach to the boards. 

  • The posters will be mounted on boards and Velcro adhesive will be provided. Attachment materials will be provided by us (i.e. Velcro patches)

  • Do not laminate your poster, as this may result in poor attachment to the poster board

  • Be sure to include the following elements on your poster: 1) the title; 2) author names, affiliations and e-mail addresses

  • Your poster should be brought to the conference and not mailed. We do not have any facilities to print your poster onsite.

  • Presenters are responsible for posting and removing their own materials. All the posters should be attached to the correct panel by 10 a.m. on the day of presentation. Please look up your poster group and individual poster number, and attach your poster to the panel with the corresponding number.

  • All posters should be removed at the end of the day your poster session is displayed. Posters that have not been removed will not be stored by the organization.
