Practical information

19th International Conference on Positron Annihilation (ICPA-19)
Online conference

The conference will take place online via Zoom. All presentations will be live, interactive presentations. Since we have participants from many different time zones, we aim to make recordings of the oral sessions and posted pdfs available online on a password-protected page so that they can be accessed during the conference week and the week after. All registered participants will receive Zoom meeting links and passwords to the conference content from the organizers before the conference. Please do not share the Zoom meeting links and passwords you receive with anyone. 

We recommend using the Zoom application for participating the meeting. You can, however, also participate using the browser without the Zoom application. You should note, that the browser version of Zoom has limited functionalities especially concerning the breakout rooms that will be used in the virtual poster sessions, and that it works best in Google Chrome. The Zoom Desktop Client as well as the Zoom Mobile Application are available for manual download here

Virtual poster presentations

Virtual poster sessions

There will be two virtual poster sessions organized via Zoom, using breakout rooms. To ensure that no-one is alone in a breakout room, we will place more than one presenter in each room.

Instructions for virtual posters

Your virtual poster is a regular powerpoint presentation (or alike) of 1-3 slides (3 slides is the maximum). Prepare a story of about 3 min for introducing your work to the visitors entering your breakout room (no need to record this!).

We will also ask each presenter to prepare a separate advertisement slide (1 page only). Please use the template available here. This slide will contain: title, list of authors and one graphical abstract (no text or as little text as possible) that can catch the attention of the participants present in the main room. Note that we will place four advertisement slides together (do not make the slide too busy!) to ensure that the correct location of your poster can be easily found.

Closer to the conference we will provide an upload link for the poster and advertisement slides (two separate files, 1 pdf + 1 pptx). They should be uploaded by the week before the conference, and will be available for the registered conference participants to see also outside the poster session hours.

Zoom ser­vice and infor­mation se­cur­ity at the University of Helsinki

Funet Miitti (Zoom) and the pub­lic Zoom ser­vice are dif­fer­ent services

The University of Helsinki uses the Funet Miitti (Zoom) service, which is provided by CSC and implemented through the NORDUnet in cooperation with other Nordic countries. The service is implemented in compliance with Finnish law and European data protection regulations. The Zoom service provided by CSC and NORDUnet is technically different from the Zoom service provided by the US-based Zoom Video Communications, Inc.

The news on the transmission of phone numbers or credit card information does not concern the service provided by CSC and NORDUnet. TheNORDUnet environment does not use Zoom cloud storage, and Zoom has no access to the video or audio from meetings. The service description of Funet Miitti is public.
