The video with your communication will be available on the event’s website under “video communications”.

All video communications are part of the communications programme and are included in a session. However, the video communication is only exhibited in the session itself if the author(s) guarantee(s) to be present via zoom in the session to be able to answer eventual questions from the audience in the period dedicated to the debate of the communications. Otherwise, the moderator only mentions the video communication, the authors, and the page where it is available and where the public can ask questions.
