In preparing presentation and ePoster materials, take note of the AAPM Virtual Meeting guideline regarding Use of Photography and Video:

While AAPM encourages sharing meeting activities via social media, we remind attendees that all presentation content, including ePoster content, is the property of the author and permission is required to share or reuse photographs or videos of work presented at the meeting, including sharing on social media.

If presenters indicate “no photography” on their presentation materials, taking photographs, videos, screenshots or captures of the presentation or poster content is not allowed, for any use.

Otherwise, taking photographs or videos is allowed for personal use.

All ePosters are posted online in the AAPM ePoster Library to be accessible by all meeting registrants. Viewers will have the ability to interact directly with the Presenting Author by sending an email or using a forum available within the platform.

This year we will introduce a new feature! A selected group of Poster Authors will be available virtually to present their ePoster live during a pre-determined period. Conference attendees are invited to join a virtual room to meet the poster author, post questions verbally, or submit via question box.

Moderators will not create content but will have access to the upload site and be able to download and review files for their particular session(s) from the site. You will receive a separate email from AAPM containing the link to the upload site and instructions on using the site.

Live Meeting Operational Overview:

  • Moderator Guidelines
  • Each live session and symposia on the agenda will be managed by 2 staff members: 1 Technical Producer and 1 Staff Administrator.
  • Technical Producer will initiate the Zoom session, act as the host, and will run the meeting according to a pre-arranged agenda where the specified presentations will be played in order from their previously recorded video files.
  • Technical Producer will enable the cameras/microphones of the presenters so they may participate during the live question and answer period.
  • Attendees will not be able to enable their cameras or microphones during live sessions.
  • Chat will be offered during each live session and will be moderated by a person designated by AAPM. This will allow questions from the audience to be readily available to the faculty.
  • Presenters and moderators will be required to be present in the Virtual Meeting Room 15 minutes before the beginning of their allotted time to give enough time to get prepared and correct any technical issues.
  • AAPM presenters and moderators will be able to communicate directly with the Staff Administrator who will then communicate with the Technical Producer for each session using chat. This chat will not be visible to attendees or other presenters.
