Step 3: Prepare Your Virtual Presentation

Oral Presentations

Your oral presentation will be presented consecutively with up to three other oral presentations in a live session hosted in Zoom. You will have 15 minutes to present and discuss with conference attendees. We recommend oral presentations be 8-10 minutes in length followed by 3-4 minutes of Q&A. Sessions will be moderated to ensure all presenters get an equal amount of time.

If you would like to use PowerPoint slides with your presentation (strongly encouraged), you will need to be comfortable using Zoom screen share function to display and advance your slides.

Presenters are welcome to use the NAPCRG-provided PowerPoint template if you like. Access NAPCRG PowerPoint template here

Poster Presentation Sessions

Poster presentations will be part of the PBRN Virtual Poster Hall. 

These materials are available to attendees to view at their own convenience on-demand during the conference. There will be a comment section under each poster presentation for viewers to leave comments and questions for the presenters to read and/or reply to directly. 

All poster presentations will include a visual of the poster, abstract, and an optional handout or video recording of 1-3 minutes.
