Session Format and Presentation Instructions for Main Conference Accepted Papers

MICCAI2023 will be primarily an in-person event. All presentations are to be delivered live in person. All keynote presentations, oral presentations, and MICCAI society events will be streamed live to the virtual platform (Conference Catalysts) for virtual attendees to participate.

Please note that all accepted papers (including papers invited to give oral presentations) have an assigned poster session.

Please see the final Oral and Poster program and board assignment here.

Poster Sessions

Each accepted paper (including Oral papers) has an assigned poster session at the conference. Presenters are expected to be available at the scheduled presentation time to present live and to interact with conference attendees. In addition, each accepted paper has a designated page on Conference Catalysts, the virtual platform. The presenting author corresponding to your paper will receive an email from Conference Catalysts with a link for uploading your PDF e-poster and 5-minute video. Your e-poster and video will be available to all conference attendees 24/7 throughout the conference. Presenters are encouraged to make use of the platform to interact with conference delegates. Presenters are expected to check their message boards on Conference Catalysts daily.

Access to Conference Catalysts and file format:

All presenters are required to upload a PDF virtual poster and a 5-minute video to Conference Catalysts.

An email with a link to upload files to Conference Catalysts will be sent to the registered author of your paper (based on the registration associated with your paper) on September 1st. All other registered conference attendees will receive their login information on October 6th. Please make sure your files are uploaded no later than September 15th. If you do not receive a login email from Conference Catalysts, please check with your co-authors and your SPAM folder before contacting the Virtual Platform Manager John Baxter. See the email sent via CMT for John's email address. If you encounter any upload issues, please also contact John.

They must be removed on Wednesday, October 11, between 18:00 and 20:00. Posters left behind will be discarded.

Oral Sessions

For Oral sessions, presentations will be given live followed by a live Q&A. All sessions will be broadcast LIVE to Conference Catalysts where the virtual conference attendees can participate in real-time.

Instructions for Oral Presenters

Please prepare slides for a 10-minute presentation. After your talk, there will be approximately 5 minutes for questions. Timing will be strictly enforced to ensure a smooth handover between speakers. Please ensure that you have rehearsed the timing of your talk beforehand. As a rule of thumb, you should have one slide per minute of talk time. The session chair will introduce each speaker and the title of the talk. Each oral presentation will also have an associated poster presentation.

Please arrive at the presentation room at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. There are two parallel sessions - please consult the program to make sure you go to the correct room. Presenters will be required to use the conference system to minimize setup time. Your slides must be submitted at least one day before your scheduled talk day. Please upload your slides to this Dropbox folder. Please prefix your file with your Oral session number and talk number for easy identification. For example, 3-4.pptx if you are in Oral session 3, talk number 4. There will be a speaker-ready room to check your file with the conference system.

Slides Format

The preferred format is Microsoft PowerPoint. Please prepare your slides in a 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition to uploading your slides one day prior, we suggest bringing a copy of all the files including movies on a USB key. If you are including videos in your presentation, it is highly recommended you use a standard codec such as Microsoft Video 1 to avoid playback issues. Exporting the presentation using the Package for CD option from PowerPoint will ensure that all media files are copied into one location and file paths are adjusted inside the presentation. Windows Video Player is installed on the presentation computer.
