Programme and presenter guidelines
Find out more about the programme for BES2022 and how to prepare for your presentation.
Conference platform and full programme
The full programme is now available via the conference platform Whova. This includes full abstract and author lists for in-person and virtual content, access to ePresentations, networking opportunities and exhibitor and sponsor pages. You can also view the conference agenda on our website here.
All delegates should have received an email with a link to the conference platform and app. If you have not received this by 17:00 (GMT) Monday 12th December, please check your junk folder first, and then email the Events Team.
- For the desktop version of the conference platform, you do not need to download or install any software, you only need to have access to the internet. We recommend using the Chrome web browser where possible.
- For the mobile app, you can download this via your app store and enter the email address you used to register for the conference. If the event does not show up automatically, you can search for ‘BES2022’ in the search bar, and then click ‘Join’.
*If you use more than one email address, please try both*
We recommend logging in as soon as you can once you have received the link so that you can spend some time familiarising yourself with the platform, viewing the online ePresentations and getting to know other delegates. Use the Chrome browser for the best experience. We have found that, if you don’t use Chrome, you may experience issues with the Whova platform.
If you are experiencing any issues logging in, or want further information about using the platform, you can find more detailed instructions here. Alternatively, you can get in touch with the Events Team.
For more information on how to use the platform and app once you have logged in, download our Online joining instructions below.

Social media policy
We love social media. It is a great way to connect with people across the world, to share ideas and create collaborations. We encourage people to tweet and post about their experiences.
However, we understand that some people will not want their research broadcast. We respect that, so have created a ‘do not share’ image for people to download to add to their poster/talk presentation wherever necessary. We expect that fellow attendees will also respect such a request. We will explain the meaning of the ‘do not share’ image on social media, our website and in the printed programme. If people do not include the ‘do not share’ image on their presentation, we will assume they are happy for their research to be publicised openly.
