The 47th IOP Plasma Conference will now be held as a virtual conference

Instructions for oral presenters

The chair of your session will introduce you before your talk and then moderate the questions from the audience on the chat box or raised virtual hands. 

If the chair doesn't have the time to read out all the questions, oral presenters are encouraged to answer them on the chat box after their talk.

Please note all sessions will be recorded and shared with attendees and on the IOP members On-Demand service. If you do not want this, please email so your talk is taken from the recording before it is shared.

Before your session
  • Please make sure you have consulted the programme and are aware of the date, time and session of your talk
  • Register for the event. The link to join will be sent out on the final confirmation email on the day before the event
  • Make sure you have planned your talk according to the instructed time. As a reminder:
    • Invited 30 min talk + 10 min questions
    • Contributed: 15 min talk + 5 min questions

You can chose to do a live talk on the event, or you can record your talk in advance. Please note instructions for each option below.

Live talks

If you are giving a live talk, you are expected to have your presentation open on your desktop and ready to share 5 minutes before the start of your talk. The conferences team will be running software practice before the event (links to which should have now been emailed to you). Please attend if you want to make sure your connection is reliable, your camera and microphone work and also to optimise the sharing of your screen.

The conferences team will play an audible warning 2 minutes before the talk is due to end. Please keep your presentation within the allocated time in the programme. If you go above the time limit, the chair will have the capacity to intervene and move on to the next author on the agenda.

Pre-recorded talks

If you would like your talk to be pre-recorded, please send it to Ana in the conferences team at by the end of the day on 30 March 2021.

You will only be expected to turn on your sound and video at the end of the recording for the questions. Please do not turn your microphone on at any other time apart from when the chair opens up the Q&A after your presentation.
