We have adjusted our offers to the virtual possibilities, for more detailed information about the available options and packages, please have a look at our Sales Prospectus .

Switching to a virtual congress is without doubt a big change. Nevertheless, we have set up a complete new platform with various possibilities to show your presence and interact with your customers.

Furthermore, the EASD is known already since many years for virtual sessions with a worldwide audience. Last year, during the course of the 5-day meeting, the EASD had over 15,000 people logged into the system to view livestreams. The webcasts were then viewed by an additional ~70,000 people after the meeting ended until today. In an average 12 month period, they have over 100,000 users viewing either livestreams or webcasts on the EASD platform. And this was before creating the new virtual platform!

For the first time, we can give the opportunity to the industry to attach to the virtual success this year, a year where most possibilities for presentations to your clients have been going down.

In addition, the EASD society is continuing to provide education and to support research – and can only operate with financial assistance in these difficult times. Therefore, any support, even lower than your original plan, will be highly appreciated.

We would be more than happy to introduce you to the ground-breaking platform, presenting the outstanding opportunities to present your company and interact with the delegates in an virtual environment. To arrange an appointment with our sales team please contact Karin Seidel (k.seidel@interplan.de) to personally advise you on your participation in the EASD Virtual Meeting 2020 (as well as cancellation).

General questions regarding industry sessions at the Virtual Meeting

For more detailed information, please have a look the the following link: Technical Information

As the approach of the EASD Virtual Meeting 2020 is providing a vibrant and interactive experience to the delegate and industry, all sessions should be livestreamed. Pre-recording is possible but can incur with additional costs (if you upload one showfile instead of one file per speaker).

For more detailed information, please have a look the the following link: Technical Information

Your Industry Session will be published at your scheduled time and remains online until 23 October 2020.
We usually upload webcasts within a few hours, depending on the format, size and way you submit your files and whether you have live parts in the session. Due to these many variables, the upload time can vary between 2-48 hours, of course we always try to make the content available online as soon as possible after the first broadcast date.
If you have booked an exhibition package, all your Industry Sessions will be streamed in your company profile until 23 October 2020. Additional packages for extension are available. Throughout an entire year, Industry Sessions have shown a number of clicks which are 2-5 fold higher than during the original congress. With our marketing strategy for a complete Virtual Meeting 2020 we expect even more views.

Please find further information regarding the extension packages in our Sales Prospectus.

For more detailed information, please have a look at the following site: Registration

It is not possible to tag your session yourself.
Tags come from the entire scientific programme and includes all words used in titles, abstract text, slide texts, poster texts. The list itself consists of ~1 million words and phrases which are categorized based on their frequency. At a later date this database will be used to select a number of high-frequency topics. In addition, delegates have the opportunity to add their own topics as a text which is added to the AI algorithm. The tags will change slightly as the content is uploaded to the system over the course of the meeting.

 

It is based on the selections and input of the delegates when creating their profiles and high-frequency tags in the system will be “fed” to the profiles. It is not possible to have any influence on this.

In general an external live stream is possible, but it will be linked to additional costs (to be booked from Interplan).

There are 2 options of enabling the live stream:

Option 1: Providing a stream as M3U8 HLS Stream that will be used for the Playout Page; in this case, we only provide the Webpage and the Player! The CDN for the stream itself must be provided by you.

Option 2: Delivery over our CDN – you get a RTMP or SRT ingest link. We are providing the CDN.

For both options:
~ in both cases, we are not responsible for the quality of the stream, as we only cache it!
~ additional features like “voting” are not recommended, as we have no control over the delay of the streaming
~ we suggest a Ingest with 2.5 – 3.5 Mbit
~ constant Bitrate
~ constant Framerate of 25/30 fps (Keyframe set according to the Framerate)

Each delegate that enters the Virtual Meeting has to accept the terms and conditions first and with that they confirm that they are HCPs. Whether or not this is true we cannot control.

To view your session the condition is to be registered and logged in for the Virtual Meeting 2020.

As the session takes place in a specific room where different sessions take place over the day there is no direct link to the session room.

If you want to use a link for an advertisement etc. it is possible to use the link from your session information page from the offical EASD Virtual Meeting programme website. Via that page it is possible to join the session by clicking on the “join live session” button.
