Looking for information on 24th International C.elegans Conference? Visit the #Worm23 website.
Poster presentations will consist of two parts:
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:
Click the “play” button on the bottom left of the poster to play the audio. You can zoom in and out using the magnifying glass icons and can move the poster around by clicking and dragging.
You can leave questions for poster presenters using the Conference App. Simply scroll to the very bottom of the poster’s app entry to find the “Discussion” section that allows you to leave a comment. Check back at the end of the conference for the author’s replies.
You must be logged in to comment. Comments will be visible to all attendees.
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!

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.❗
You can only access the Poster Hall during scheduled poster sessions or the test session on June 17. To access the Poster Hall:
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.
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.
Remo does not work well on mobile devices.
This will improve the performance of Remo and the quality of your audio and video feed.
Posters will be arranged in numerical order, starting with the lowest numbers on the lowest floor of each building.
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.
Access the Whiteboard through the “More” icon in the bottom toolbar.
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.
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.
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.
