Abstract presenters can participate in the meeting virtually or in person as this will be a Hybrid Meeting and will include both live participation and access as well as an integrated Cytokines 2022/ILC4 Virtual Meeting Platform. However, the 5 minute Lightning Talks will only be presented by in-person attendees, although they will also be live-streamed to the virtual participants.

In-person Poster Sessions will be using the traditional boards and each presenter will be assigned a poster in their session for the full 90 minutes. The in-person poster presenters will also be required to submit their poster through the iPoster platform so they are accessible to our virtual participants (which can either be a pdf upload or using the iPoster templates for more in-depth information). Our interactive iPoster platform will make it easy for authors to create presentations that bring their research to life – whether presented virtually online or live onsite in Hawaii, including:

  • Schedule video chat room discussions at multiple times and dates.
  • Unlimited text and multimedia content.
  • Upload high resolution images, high definition videos, and GIF’s.
  • Audio tools for adding oral presentations and other sound files.
  • Add simulations, visualizations, and sonifications.
  • Include links to external websites for viewing original source materials and other contextual content and other dynamic content.
