Virtual participation & poster sessions:

The virtual part of the workshop will be managed through the ASW7 dashboard:

Please note that the poster sessions will be 100% virtual: "in person" participants will thus have to connect to the dashboard to access posters and chat with authors. We encourage you to bring your electronic device (computer/smartphone) to be able to interact during poster sessions.
