Programme and presenter guidelines
Find out more about the programme for EAB2021 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 abstracts and author lists for both in-person and virtual content, access to ePosters, networking opportunities and a list of our exhibitors and sponsors.
All delegates will receive an email with a link to the conference platform and app. If you have not received this by 17:00 (GMT) Thursday 9 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 ‘Ecology Across Borders 2021’ 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 possible to spend some time familiarising yourself with the platform, viewing the online ePosters and getting to know other delegates.
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.
If you are attending EAB2021 in person, our in-person joining instructions have all of the key information you need for the conference, while our online instructions offer a detailed guide on how to use the conference platform and how to get the most out of the experience for anyone attending virtually.

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.
