Questions and answers

  • No! Presenters can make the most out of the poster session and visit other posters, start conversations, and get notified when someone comes by their poster to discuss.

  • No, we made it super easy so that you have nothing to setup. Video conversations work through our integrated video conversation tools and rooms are created automatically.

    No need to create individual rooms or links for each poster. Participants never leave your event website for an optimal experience.

  • At Fourwaves, we prioritize quality before quantity. Hence, we decided to limit the poster video conversations to 8 participants. This limit does not apply to judges and presenters. We wanted to recreate those informal talks we have in front of poster boards at in-person conferences.

    On top of the 8 participants in video discussions, up to 350 participants can join in listening mode and interact via our embedded live-chat feature.
