Technical details (summary of info sent in e-mails)

Login information to access the online platforms for scientific sessions and e-poster presentations will be sent a few days before the start of the conference. Speakers and poster presenters will receive instructions and training by Brightelm (7–8 October) on the use of their online platforms. Sessions will be recorded and made available online after the meeting if the presenter approves it.

The electronic posters platform does not generate video-rooms for the posters (rooms created by the meeting platform would not have allowed the presenter to see cameras of those listening). Each presenter needs to in advance create a link to a video meeting room of their own choice (e.g. Zoom or Teams) and enter this link in a text field on the platform. The poster-presenter is also expected to upload a very short video presentation that can be viewed without needing to interrupt any ongoing live discussion. It is possible to optionally upload the poster as PDF too. The event hosting company can assist you during the training session, but until a more customized guide for video recording and uploading is published you can see this guide for how to record using a Zoom-meeting with just yourself (you need to sign in to Zoom, i.e. register an account if you don't have one). For uploading the video you can either use a YouTube account or send a MP4-file to the event hosting company attochembrightelm.co.uk.

Poster awards

The three best posters will be awarded, sponsored by Coherent, Inc. The poster evaluation committee is independent of the sponsor and consists of Caterina Vozzi, Fernando Martín and the local organizing committee. Awardees are asked to check the anti-corruption regulations of their organization for whether receiving a monetary award (based on your work, not a lottery) is allowed and whether any registration/disclosure is required.


This event is based upon work from the COST action ATTOCHEM, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
