Paper and Flash Presenters Live Q&A

As a paper or flash presenter, you will participate in a live Q&A during the ASBH Annual Conference. You will NOT be presenting your paper during the Q&A. Your paper will already be recorded and uploaded into the virtual conference platform (see above).

Attendees will watch the recording of your paper on their own time throughout the conference and then attend your live Q&A. Q&A’s feature three paper presenters. Each presenter will have 10 minutes to answer attendee questions. All presenters will receive information from the virtual conference system by October 2, 2020 on how to connect and host their live Q&A. Check the online schedule to find when your Q&A is scheduled.
