September 22-24, 2021
Lublin, Poland
Recurrence plot symposium Lublin 2021.

Important Note

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, our symposium is a hybrid event with persenters and audience both in presence and in virtual space. This requires more preparation for the presenters and patience of the audience. For a smooth presentation procedure, presentations are organised mainly in blocks of physical or virtual presenters.

The time for the talk is 12 min, plus 3 min discussion (invited talks are 40 min, plus 5 min discussion). Presentations should be prepared as PowerPoint or pdf file. Animations should be avoided, because of the latencies in virtual environment.

For physical oral presentations: The speakers have to upload their presentation to the computer in the lecture hall in the morning or during the breaks between the sessions at the latest. It will not be possible to upload it during sessions or to use an own computer for presentations.

For virtual oral presentations: The video conferencing software is Microsoft Teams. Be prepared and test this framework and your presentation in advance of your presentation to get familiar with Teams. The link to the MS Teams meeting room will be sent to all registered participants by email. Joining the meeting should be available without having a MS Teams account (» instructions).

Poster presentations: At Wednesday, we will have a physical poster session. Virtual participants should not be worried, because the posters will be presented again virtually at Thursday. Thursday, we will have short (2 min) poster presentations, virtually and physically using Microsoft Teams. During this short introduction, the upper part of the posters will be shown in the presentation, based on the pdf of the poster. After this, participants can join a virtual discussion via for individual discussions. All poster presenters (virtual and physical) will be available there. The address to the virtual poster discussion space and all posters (available as pdf files) can be found at (access data will be sent by emails to all registered participants). Please prepare the poster in the same way as for presenting in presence. We will use the top of the pdf file in the 2 min short presentations at the beginning of the poster session 2 (do not prepare a slide show, we will do it).

This procedure requires that also physical participants will be able to join the virtual meeting space. Therefore, they should also bring their own device and connect to the virtual meeting space individually.

Moreover, this procedure requires that all poster presenters have submitted a pdf file of their poster presentation in advance of the symposium.

The prefered size of the posters is A0 or ArchE portrait (i.e. higher than wide). A hook will be available for hanging as well as material for fixing the posters in the support.
