Information for ePlatform Presenters

Here are some important guidelines to read if your abstract has been accepted for ePlatform (oral) presentation at the 37th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists to be held virtually, June 15 – 19, 2020.  Your abstract will be published in the conference program and is eligible for publication in Clinical Anatomy.  The work will be published in Clinical Anatomy even if you do not participate in the virtual meeting.  Please do let us know if you DO NOT wish to have your work published.

The process to confirm your acceptance and participate in the Annual Meeting is two-fold:

1. An email was sent from the abstract software, Planstone, to all accepted authors on Thursday, April 23.  This first email confirms the type of presentation your abstract was accepted for and contained a link for you to accept the request to present at the virtual meeting in June.  All abstract authors are to complete the link to confirm or deny their participation by May 1st.

2. After the author accepts the invitation to present, an automated email with the link to login to your speaker portal will be sent.  It is there that you will be able to upload your recorded presentation, as well as a photograph and a brief biography.  Step-by-step instructions on how to upload your files to the speaker portal are also on that email.
Your uploaded talk should be around 12 - 15 minutes. Your cooperation with this format will be appreciated.
Your ePlatform presentation should be uploaded as a PowerPoint or Keynote  (no restrictions on size, the system adjusts to the file to fit the screen of the viewer).  Additionally, we encourage you to record audio regarding your ePlatform (much like you would in person).  This presentation should adhere to the requested presentation time of no more than 12 – 15 minutes. 

Here are some tips on how to record your presentation with audio.  If you choose to use Zoom, here is a step-by-step instruction guide on how to record. 

For your convenience, we have created a PowerPoint (PPT) template for your ePlatform presentation.  Please use this as a template when creating the presentation.   
The ePlatform presentations should be uploaded by Wednesday, June 3rd to Planstone.  That way, attendees can view them at their leisure throughout the week of June 15 – 19.  Each attendee will have the ability to review your work and provide feedback using an online form.  This feedback will be shared with you after the meeting.
