Oral presentations will be strictly 15 minutes duration (12 min for presenting and 3 minutes for live Q&A at the end if time permits). Presenters will be assigned a place in the online program and will be recorded and uploaded for attendees to watch on-demand.

Presenters will be required to present live on the day however special requests will be taken into consideration by the program committee.


Online Posters will be located in the Biofabrication 2021 Online Platform to be viewed anytime throughout the conference in a gallery view. Attendees will be able to select your poster and view your uploaded materials – we suggest you upload multiple medias to immerse your viewers – this could be a video, PDF presentation, links, handouts, flyers/brochures, etc. Posters will include a designated discussion board, the ability to have a Live Poll and for your audience to leave you questions – we ask that presenters monitor these throughout the event.
