Short Talks:

Short talks are a well known feature of our ÖGMBT Annual Meetings. Each session will feature 3 short talks.

In our virtual meeting room, you will present your short talk live via Zoom before the audience either as a 10 or 12 minutes talk plus three minutes for Q&A.

An abstract of your “Short Talk”, your photo, affiliation/contact details will be part of the pdf program/abstract book, which will be provided online and is publicly viewable.

Science Flashes (in lieu of poster presentations):

What was formerly a “poster presentation” is now a Science Flash. As contributor of a Science Flash you will pre-record your presentation (you can make a presentation, a powerpoint, any other animation – be creative!) as video and upload. Science Flashes are either 4 or 5 minute videos. Instructions for recording will be provided. At the session you will be answering and discussing your presentation live.

An abstract of your “Science Flash” presentation, your photo, affiliation/contact details will be part of the pdf program/abstract book, which will be provided online and is publicly viewable.

Best Talk and Best Science Flash Awards:

Each young scientist who has submitted an abstract has the chance to win one of the Awards for Best Short Talk or Best Science Flash.

From all Short Talks and Science Flashes of a session, the Chairs of that respective session will nominate candidates for the final prize decision - to be taking by the Chair of the meeting.

Awards will be bestowed in the following categories: 

  1. Best Short Talk: 2 prizes à € 150.- Sponsored by EucoDis
