Recordings & On Demand Presentations

All short presentations, oral paper presentations, and symposium/panel authors must submit their presentation so that we can make it possible for participants to learn about your paper after the congresses (FAB & WCB). In light of the many parallel sessions and the hybrid nature of our congress, this is an additional offer that we find useful for all participants and the presenters.

We therefore ask all presenters to prepare and submit a PDF with voiceover or a video with a summary of the important points of your presentation. These Videos will be available on demand for 1 month after the congresses.
