Dear participant,

BBEST 2020-21/BIOFUTURE SUMMIT II Virtual Conference will be held virtually from November 30th to December 2nd, 2020, through the Whova platform.

Please remember that the deadline to submit your poster presentation is October 26th.

We prepared a small guide on how to access and use the Whova platform during the event to watch poster presentations and live stream sessions, and interact with other participants and the Evaluation Committee.

Best Poster Awards

During November, all poster presentations will be analyzed by the Evaluation Committee. During this period of time, evaluators may get in touch with you to clarify any issues regarding your presentation.
Please, check the Messages tab in Whova, as well as your registered email account, so you don’t miss any contact from the Evaluation Committee.

Poster Q&A Sessions

Your poster presentation will be released a few days before the event starts, so that all participants have time to watch the presentations and ask you questions. The Q&A sessions will be asynchronous, which means it will work in the same dynamic as a forum: participants will post their questions, and the presenter will answer them according to his/her availability.

Participating on Virtual Activities

Besides the poster sessions, a series of webinars, mini-policy forum and award ceremony will take place from November 30th to December 2nd, 2020.
You can participate in all these online events through Whova, watching live streams, asking questions during Q&A sessions and interacting with other participants on the chat.
Our agenda is on, and there is still more to come!

Interacting with other participants, using Virtual meetups

Besides all the scheduled activities, you can also interact with other participants using the Community tab. There, you can schedule virtual meetings with other participants, using Whova’s virtual meeting room, or other external video conference software of your preference.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
