Frequently Asked Questions



Poster presentations will consist of two parts:

  • Poster files in the App: Poster PDFs with an optional 2-minute audio overview will be available to conference registrants via the App between June 19 and June 24 July 20.
  • Live Poster Sessions on Remo: Poster sessions will take place via the Remo video conferencing platform, which mimics an in-person poster event. Each presenter will be assigned their own “table,” which is a group video chat room with a “whiteboard” where presenters will upload their poster file to reference during the discussions.

How to View Poster Files in the App

Between June 19 and June 24 July 16 July 20, you can use the Conference App to view virtual posters.

Log in, then click on your session of interest. The poster file will be available as a “Virtual Poster” link near the bottom of the session detail pane. Look for this icon:

How to Participate in Live Poster Sessions on Remo


Worm21 Remo Floor Plan

Poster Sessions will take place using the Remo virtual platform, which provides a video discussion forum that mimics an in-person networking event. Presenters can display their poster to table attendees by uploading it to the table “whiteboard.” They will discuss their work with groups of attendees coming and going throughout the session, just like they would at an in-person meeting! Watch a 3-minute video introduction to Remo ≫

Test your system

You must test whether your system meets Remo’s technical requirements before the conference. Be sure to also attend the Remo Practice Session on Thursday, June 17, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Make sure you are using the computer and browser that you plan to use during the poster sessions. Note that Remo does not work well on phones.

Important note: you cannot access Remo from a tablet or iPad.❗

Test your system

Log in to the Poster Hall/Remo

You can only access the Poster Hall during scheduled poster sessions or the test session on June 17. To access the Poster Hall:

  1. Log in to the Desktop App using your registration badge ID number and last name.
  2. Click the “Live Poster Hall” link on the home screen.
  3. Click on the appropriate poster session building link.
  4. Click “Join Event Now” on the Remo event welcome page.
  5. Register for Remo with the same email address you used to register for the conference. You will need to create a Remo password. Do not use the option to log in via Google.
When you first enter the poster session, you will be seated at a random poster “table.” Move to a new poster by double-clicking on any table where there is a free seat.

Note that during each session there are three different Remo “buildings.” You can switch between the three buildings without leaving Remo.

In each building, there are nine floors. Each floor has 12 tables labelled with poster program numbers (listed as PgmNr in the App).

A maximum of six people at a time (five visitors and one presenter) can be at one table.

How to find a particular poster

The Program Number (PgmNr) of each poster is listed in the App agenda. The building/floor is listed on the “Poster Table Finder” screen of the App, also available at this link.

You can move between floors using the elevator-style panel on the left.

You can also switch to the other buildings from within Remo using the buttons on the left.

Poster session tips

Use a computer.

Remo does not work well on mobile devices.

Turn off all unneeded apps.

This will improve the performance of Remo and the quality of your audio and video feed.

Look up the Program Numbers of your posters of interest before the session starts.

Posters will be arranged in numerical order, starting with the lowest numbers on the lowest floor of each building.

Turn on your camera but mute your microphone when you join a new table.

Unmute yourself to ask questions, but remember to turn the mic back off when you’re not speaking. We request that you leave your camera on unless you are having connectivity issues.

View the poster for each table on its whiteboard.

Access the Whiteboard through the “More” icon in the bottom toolbar.

Use the Zoom to force Whiteboard to render the poster as best resolution

If the poster appears blurry on the Whiteboard, use the zoom controls (bottom right of the Whiteboard) to zoom in to 150%. Wait a few seconds for the image to render. Once the resolution improves, you can zoom back out to the desired zoom level.

Add a profile picture and fill in your profile info.

If you did not add a profile picture during the Remo registration process, you can add one by editing your profile using the circle icon in the top right hand corner. Your “Headline” is the text that will appear when people click on your icon. For example, you could use the headline to list your scientific topic of interest. You can also connect your profile to your LinkedIn account.

Remo troubleshooting

If you have technical issues, first try reloading your Remo browser window to see if it corrects itself.

Remo only works on certain combinations of browsers and operating systems, so you may need to download a new browser or update your operating system to a later version. Google Chrome typically works best for Remo on all systems. Remo will not work well on phones and will not work at all on tablets.

You can only log in to Remo on one device/browser at a time; make sure you log out of Remo if you decide to switch to another device or browser.

If your camera or microphone does not work, here are some troubleshooting guides to help you resolve common issues:

My camera and microphone do not work on Windows 10

My camera and microphone do not work on MacOSX

My camera and microphone do not work on iPhone

My camera and microphone do not work on Android phone

If your internet connection is too slow for Remo and you do not have access to another network, you can try participating in the session without sharing your camera. We also recommend quitting other applications on your computer during the poster session.
