We continue to move forward in the organization of the VIII Iberian Congress of Ichthyology and the dates of celebration are getting closer. This task requires a great effort and a high investment of time, so we strongly ask for the maximum collaboration in the fulfillment of the deadlines and the technical recommendations set out in this new newsletter.
To date, 80 participants have registered for the congress. However, we have only received 20 abstracts. The number of communications will probably be much higher, so we assume that many are delaying the submission until the deadline. Due to the new format and the technical work that this requires, this is a serious setback for the organization. Therefore, from this moment on, the deadline for the reception of the communications is opened. The deadline for sending abstracts is 29 May and it is essential that the organization receives the communications before 5 June. Please do so as soon as possible as it will be technically impossible to extend these dates.
There is the possibility of changing the communication presentation format, from poster to oral and vice versa; it is up to the congress participants to decide. For this purpose, the authors will be required to send a PDF file with the poster, of free dimensions but allowing a good reading, and for the oral communication modality it will be necessary to provide a video, of a of a maximum of 15 minutes, with the presentation.
The e-mail address to send the pdfs and videos is firstname.lastname@example.org. Still, those who have not yet submitted an abstract must do so using the form on the congress website.
The following options are proposed for the recording of oral communications:
- Option of Record presentations in Power Point: https://support.office.com/es-es/article/grabar-una-presentaci%C3%B3n-con-diapositivas-con-narraci%C3%B3n-e-intervalos-de-diapositivas-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c
- Option using Zoom: https://zoom.us/es-es/resources.html
- Option using the free software OBS: https://obsproject.com/es
All of them are easy to use and tutorials can be found on the web in abundance. If you still have difficulties, please contact the organization at email@example.com.
Communications of the VIII Iberian Congress of Ichthyology will be disseminated maintaining the structure in thematic areas. Registered congress participants will be able to access them through a virtual platform during the congress dates (June 15-19).
The afternoon of the 15th will be reserved only for the opening session in streaming, in which the congress will be presented and the last instructions for the follow-up of the sessions will be given. The 16th, 17th and 18th will be dedicated to discussions via chat of each of the communications presented. The morning of the 19th will be reserved for the two workshops on aquatic invasive alien species, in the form of a "webinar", the afternoon will be dedicate to the General Assembly of the SIBIC and the presentation of the next SIBIC 2022 congress.
