Join each conference day at your convenience.

The online conference platform will stay open 24-hours a day to give you the opportunity to view and catch up on the on-demand material and to join the networking lounge for further discussion and casual conversations with participants of different time zones.
The official 12-hour programme will be scheduled according to Kyoto time between 13.00–1.00. Please check a time zone converter for the live session times at your location.
Presentations and Live Discussions
All paper presenters are asked to pre-record a 15-minute presentations. These pre-recorded presentations will be made available as of 10 August to give all participants the opportunity to browse and watch the different presentations before the start of the live conference. The presentations will stay available until 15 October 2021 to give participants the chance to catch up on presentations even after the official conference dates.
The live one-hour panel and roundtable sessions during the conference dates are designed to focus on discussion. Panel participants and audience can watch the pre-recorded presentations before joining the live sessions. These sessions will consist of short recaps of 3-5 minutes of each presentation, which will be followed by a longer lively discussion, exchange, collaboration and Q&A. To enable free discussion these live panel sessions will not be recorded.
