Overview of the meeting

AVW10 will be held online from June 27 to July 1 of 2021, hosted by Kyoto University, Japan. Those who wish to give a presentation will be asked to select one of two presentation formats: Live Talk and On Demand Presentation (ODP).

1. Live Talk
This is a regular oral presentation given online during the conference. For those audiences who are not able to join live due to the time difference, each live talk will be recorded, and the video will be uploaded on the meeting website (exclusively available to the meeting participants). Live Talk presenters, as well as ODP presenters described below, can upload materials related to the talk on the website in advance. The provisional length of a Live Talk presentation is 15-25 min (will be finalized depending on the number of participants).

2. On Demand Presentation (ODP)
This is a replacement of the traditional poster session. Taking advantage of an online meeting, ODP facilities more interactive discussion. ODP presenters will be requested to upload a video of their talk to the meeting website in advance. Questions and answers can be made live on a core time during the meeting, or in the comment section on the video page. ODP presenters will also make a flash talk in the meeting to introduce their presentation. The expected length of the video is 10–30 minutes.
