As you can see in the program there will be two types of appointments dedicated to accepted proposals:

  1. Discussion sessions with the moderator:
    The proposals have been grouped according to the predominant theme;
    each thematic session occupies 40 minutes.

The moderator will introduce the contributions in a concise manner and highlight the main themes that link them. The brief introduction will be followed by your presentation, organized around a set of questions from the moderator that will serve as a thread for the discussion.

You can see an example of a session in the video produced at a recent CLARIN conference that we used as a model:

Each author will receive the questions from the moderator chosen for the session a few days before the conference so as to have time to prepare the answers, with two or three supporting slides.

We will send an email to establish contact with the moderators so that a virtuous interaction will occur before the start of each session.

The sessions will be held in the plenary zoom room, open to all registered participants; in these sessions the audience will be able to intervene by writing in chat their questions and observations, which will be collected for the afternoon discussion.

  1. Discussion sessions open to the public
    In the afternoon, each group of the morning will have a space of one hour in a dedicated zoom room, open to discussion, in which they will be able to describe their proposal in more detail, also in response to requests from the audience.
    The abstracts will all be published online before the event: in this way the public will have the opportunity to arrive prepared for the conference.

To make communication even more effective, we encourage each speaker to send material to be published in advance on the AIUCD2021 website as slides in PDF format (with a limit of 5 Mb).

PLEASE NOTE. To upload slides to easychair ( you must enter with the author role and then:

  1. click on the icon with the magnifying glass (column: View) for each contribution;
  2. from the gray box-menu at the top right click on “Add files”;
  3. in the “PDF for your presentation” section, click on the button to choose the file to upload (no larger than 5 Mb);
  4. complete the file upload.

Please note that in addition to the “PDF for your presentation” section there is also the “Optional additional material” section where you can
upload additional material in PDF format in a single ZIP file not exceeding 5 Mb.

If you would also like to submit a short video, please contact us for specific instructions.
