Papers presented at the Virtual Words in the World International Conference 2023 will be presented as oral presentations and poster presentations.
There will be no parallel sessions. The conference will be using Zoom (https://zoom.us/) for all conference talks and gather.town (https://www.gather.town/) for poster sessions (see below for instructions). You will receive an email closer to the event that will guide you through the process of accessing Zoom/gather.town and provide you with the appropriate links.
We will offer an opportunity for you to address all technical questions ahead of time and try out your microphone and test your screen-sharing closer to the event.
In order to ensure that we can keep to the program, please make sure your short talk presentation is no more than ten (10) minutes in duration, with three (3) minutes planned for questions for a total of thirteen (13) minutes. There will be a couple of minutes reserved between talks to allow for setting up the next one.
Talks sessions will use Zoom. In addition to the standard option of sharing your screen and delivering your talk live, you have the option to pre-record your talk and play the video instead. If you choose to do this, please acquaint yourself with the instructions here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360051673592-Sharing-and-playing-a-video.
In case you choose to present a pre-record video, we would like to receive a copy to guard against possible interruptions due to technical difficulties. Please send us your pre-recorded video by Tuesday, November 28, 2023 by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If the file is too large to attach to the email directly, you can use, for example, WeTransfer. It’s free and easy to use (https://wetransfer.com/).
Poster sessions will be organized in gather.town. To this end, we should receive your posters before the conference, by Tuesday, November 28, but the sooner you can do this the sooner we can start organizing the poster rooms.
Please, save your poster as an image (see below for formats) and send it as an email attachment to: email@example.com
Please use the following subject line: Poster [first-author-name]
