What do you want to do?

Create an Engaging Presentation 

To help you deliver a memorable session that keeps the audience engaged, we’ve pulled together some helpful tips to make sure your presentation leaves attendees feeling like they had a valuable experience. 

Create a “Better Poster” 

It is easy to get lost in the details and try to showcase as much information as possible on your poster. Still, the key to an engaging poster that keeps a reader engaged is to focus on three points: clarity, being concise, and having a strategic design. 

Create an Accessible Presentation 

Our goal is to make TMS 2021 inclusive and accessible to all attendees. Here are some simple ways to help make your presentation and supporting materials accessible to everyone in your audience, including people with disabilities.

Get Ready to Film 

Whether you’ve never presented to a virtual audience before or you’ve done this for years, here are some quick tips that can help you record your work in the best way.

Record Your Presentation 

To create your MP4 video file, we recommend using Zoom to record your presentation. Please follow this easy step-by-step guide to ensure you get the best recording possible.

Upload Your Video, Poster, and Materials

Once your video and materials are ready, you can upload them into the TMS 2021 platform. Use our step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process.

Schedule Your Office Hours

We are excited to offer TMS 2021 presenters a way to interact with attendees interested in your presentations. Office Hours sessions let you schedule times to hold a video chat with attendees in a virtual meeting room.

Promote Your Session or Poster 

You are doing a lot of work to prepare for TMS 2021, and you have meaningful and exciting information to share. Your presentation is important for disseminating your work, growing awareness of your expertise, and influencing the discipline’s future. So, why not let other people know about it?
