You will be asked to send your poster in PDF format to the organising committee by March 29th, 2021. Poster sessions will take place live during the conference utilising a virtual reality platform, which will allow to present your poster as in any conference poster session, chatting with participant in a lively atmosphere. To make the most of the virtual quality of the conference, we will also post each poster on the conference’s Instagram profile (QRSE_student2021). This will allow for conversations about your work to develop overtime, and researchers will have the chance to post developments related to their research (e.g., a link to peer-reviewed article once the research is published). We hope this will allow our community to grow and network overtime.
