E-MRS Fall Meeting - Virtual edition:

The 2021 E-MRS FALL MEETING will be held from from 20th to 23rd September 2021 in a form of virtual conference.

The conference format will be a combination of asynchronous and synchronous modes. The conference papers and posters will be pre-recorded and all authors will be requested to send their recorded presentations by 30 August 2021. This will help us alleviate the challenges related to time differences between the continents as well as prevent technical issues during the Meeting. The papers will be uploaded to the conference website and placed in their relevant symposiums.

A week before the event, all participants will be provided with a link to access the conference materials and live sessions. They will be able to view the presentation in their own preferred time.


Oral presentations:

During the conference each session will be allocated time in the programme for displaying the pre-recorded presentations. This will be followed by the live Q&A and discussion, moderated by session chair, in ZOOM virtual rooms. Speakers are asked to take active part in their session to address the questions and participate in the discussion. Please note that for contributed presentations duration of the presentation shall be no longer than 12 minutes and for invited presentations - 25 minutes.


Poster presentations:

There will be no one designated poster session. Instead posters will be uploaded to the conference website in the poster section grouped by their relevant symposiums. Poster presentations are have the format of a video. The maximum time allotted for a poster presentation will be 3 minutes. Participants will be able to view the poster presentations in their own preferred time and leave comments to the presenters. A login with Google or Dropbox account is required. Authors may address the comments once they open their video at the conference website.


Presentation preparation guidelines (orals and posters)

All authors, whether oral or poster, will be provided with the detailed guidelines on how to prepare the presentation and with the upload link by 31 July 2021 and will be asked to upload the pre-recorded talk by 30 August 2021 using the link given in the guidelines file. E-MRS will provide all necessary technical support.


Manuscripts and proceedings:       

Depending on the symposium, a selection of full length papers will be published as special issues in appropriate journals. Submitted papers will be refereed to journals standards. Instructions to authors will be dispatched together with the notification of acceptance of the abstract.

The decision of which journals shall publish the symposia proceedings will be made jointly by symposium organizers and journal editors. An announcement of these journals will be published on the concerned symposium webpage.


Conference language is English.
