This is an issue of your browser settings. Your browser has to enable pdf previews.
Please use the recommended browser Chrome or Firefox or open downloaded pdfs locally.
Are sessions during this online EAC similar to sessions at on-site conferences?
In the virtual conference, the presentations and discussions are separate. Presentations have-been pre-recorded and can be watched at any time on the video platform. Discussions of the poster and platform presentations will be held live in discussion sessions.
Platform and poster sessions are similar, they are meant mainly for discussion. In platform sessions each presenter has ~1 min to present their summary slide and after that other participants can ask questions for ~4 min. In poster sessions each presenter has ~1 min to present their summary slide and after that there is discussion for ~3 min.
Note that you do not need to share the summary slide from your own laptop, but all the slides are shown by the conference organizers. Also note that there is no possibility to show any other slides or the pdf of your poster in the session.
Please arrive at your session 10 min before it starts.
Where to chat with other people?
Just like at an on-site conference, the virtual coffee and networking space are provided in the exhibition area.
Once the conference has opened and you have entered the Lobby, you will find further links guiding you to the chat rooms. Visiting these rooms will open a Yotribe Room (Example the „Cafe“ Link inside the Building).

Are my conversations private?

Can I track people?
