Conference Format

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, ICMF Committee has decided to move this summer's conference online.

The CFP has been closed. If you wish to audit the conference, please click on the registration button below

In order to accommodate participants from different time zones as much as possible, the conference will run from 1pm to 7pm (BST)We appreciate that even with these adjustments it will not be possible for all participants from all times zones to attend every session. We therefore will run the conference in a lightly different format. Instead of presenting papers live, pre-recorded videos or posters will be uploaded to an online platform and will make available for participants to view at their leisure in advance of the conference.

Presentation

Video Format

Speakers will pre-record their papers. Videos have a strict maximum duration of 20 minutes. They may also submit a transcript of their papers if they wish

Conference Day Arrangements

Each paper presentation will instead consist of a five-minute summary given by each speaker followed by 10 minutes of questions. 3-4 papers will be discussed together followed by a fifteen-minute coffee break

Deadlines

The video should be submitted on or before 16th May

Poster Presentations

Video/Poster Format

Presenters will send your poster in advance. The poster can be in the forms of: 

1) A five-minute video

2) A PDF of a 'digital' poster, consisting of up to five powerpoint slides

Conference Day Arrangements

Presenters should prepare a three-minute 'pitch' that summarises their poster. They will then be placed in individual virtual rooms, which other conference attendees will have the freedom to roam between for further Q&A

Deadlines

The video or poster should be submitted on or before 16th May
