Practical Information

Modality of the Presentations:

As the congress is exclusively online, the presentations will all take place on the congress platform. 

All contributions accepted by the scientific committee will be added to the specific conference platform prior to the conference, as indicated in the session of the program.

  1. All speakers will record their presentations prior to the event;
  2. The major speakers also have the possibility to present their talks live. In this case, the presenters should also record their presentation and send it to the organizing committee prior to the congress.

Due to restriction and time zone difference, a pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, September 23, 2021, for three months, via the use of access code.

How to Access to all Communications (à la Carte):

Upon registration, each pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, September 23, 2021, via the use of access code. The “à la carte” presentations can be viewed in the comfort of your place, for a duration of three months after the congress.


As each year, 3 awards will be given: the Best Scientific Contribution, Best Short Oral Presentation and Best Poster Presentation. The best poster will be selected by the vote of all virtual attendees.

Questions, Contact, and Networking:

The conference platform will allow each participant to contact speakers, attendees, and sponsors. If you wish to submit your questions to speakers, you can do it before the meeting.

To make the congress even more interesting and interactive, the organizing committee of Polyphenols Applications 2021 decided to dedicate 2 zones of discussion on each day of the congress, according to different time zones. These Interactive slots and sessions will be reserved for the questions and comments that the attendees have for the speakers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by " Interactive Online Congress "?

This year, the congress will incorporate Interactive Sessions. Otherwise stated, it will include live networking and discussions between all participants: Major speakers, Short oral & Poster presenters, as well as all attendees.

The event will be live & recorded. Therefore, it will eventually be available on-demand after the event (for three months after the event) so you may watch it at your convenience, and as many times as you like to refresh your memory or study a particular talk.

Like the case of our in-person conferences, these virtual meetings feature a keynote lecture, discussions by the chairmen and short talks and posters presentations showcasing cutting-edge, emerging, and unpublished research.
