Get and give feedback on your presentation

At registration you can optionally choose to give and get feedback on presentations.

Check this if you would like to be paired up with a presenter to provide detailed personal feedback on their presentation. 

We will match you with what we believe is a suitable abstract submitted by another participant. If you are a present, then you will be giving mutual peer feedback. The matching will be done about 14 days before the conference, so later registrations will not be included.

We connect you through email so you can mutually arrange when you give feedback during or after the conference, and if you want to share the files before/after.

Please make the feedback specific and constructive!

We also hope this will connect people with different backgrounds to discover related work and new approaches.

    • Abstract,
    • Pitch presentation in the sessions where this is done

  • The very best posters/laptops in each session will be nominated for a prize, and by the end of the day the prize winners will be selected from the nominees and awarded during the social event at the end of the day.
  • The session committees are in charge of the assessment of the prices, lead by the chair of each committee.
