Invited Speakers and Oral Abstract Presenters
Due to the fluid nature of the pandemic, we are offering most invited speakers and oral abstract presenters the option to present their science virtually. You should have received an e-mail from AHAISC@abstractsonline.com with an online form to complete regarding presenting in person or virtually. If you have not received this e-mail or if your presentation status changes, please contact Stroke.Participant@Heart.org.
Main Event Late-Breaking Science Oral Abstract presenters: Due to the high level nature of your session, we are requesting that you present your abstract in person. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please see if a co-author can present in your place and notify Stroke.Participant@Heart.org of the presenter change.
All invited speakers and oral abstract presenters: You must upload both a copy of their PPT slides and a pre-recorded version of their presentation via the Presentation Management site, regardless of whether you plan on presenting in person or virtually. (This will allow us to play your presentation in the session room should travel issues prevent you from being onsite at the date/time of your presentation.)
Instructions to upload your PPT presentation and pre-recorded presentation file electronically via the Presentation Management site will be/were sent to you via e-mail in mid-January 2022. Please be sure to add email@example.com to your e-mail safe senders’ list.
Please contact Orchestrate@freemanco.com if you did not receive an e-mail with instructions to upload your presentation electronically.
NOTE: All speakers are responsible for recording their own presentation and submitting the file via the Presentation Management site.
In person presenters: You must upload both a copy of your PPT slides and a pre-recorded version of their presentation via the Presentation Management site, regardless of whether you plan on presenting in person or virtually. (This will allow us to play your presentation in the session room should travel issues prevent you from being onsite at the date/time of your presentation.)
If you need to update your slides, you must upload your final PPT presentation at least 12 hours prior to your session's start time. You may upload your PPT presentation slides online from your own computer prior to the meeting or onsite at the Speaker Resource Center, Room 225-227 in the Ernest N Moral Convention Center. Technicians will be available onsite to assist you. You will also need to upload a pre-recorded file of your presentation by February 1 via the Presentation Management site.
All in person speakers must check in at Room 225-227 at least two hours before session start time to review their presentations for technical and format issues. Last-minute submissions disrupt the flow of sessions and will not be allowed. Any presenter who fails to submit his/her presentation in a timely manner will be prohibited from speaking.
The Speaker Resource Center (Room 225-227) has technicians available to assist presenters and is open during the following times:
- Tue., Feb 8: 6:00 a.m to 5:30 p.m.
- Wed., Feb 9: 6:00 a.m to 5:30 p.m.

Virtual Presenters: You will need to pre-record your presentation and submit the pre-recorded presentation file via the Presentation Management site. You will also need to submit a copy of your PPT slides. During your allocated Session Time, you must log into the Sli.do site to access your session and view any questions that are being submitted attendees. You will be able to answer any questions on this Sli.do site page for your session.
Virtual Presenters and Session Moderators: An online Sli.do training session will be held at the end of January. You will be sent an e-mail with the date, time and link to attend the online training. If you cannot attend the training, a recording will be available on this page.

Conflict of Interest/Disclosure Slide
Please remember to include the disclosure slide as the first or second slide of your presentation(s). This is mandatory for all presenters giving an oral presentation.
These tips will help you prepare the visual information your audience needs to understand your message.
The American Heart Association has developed an exclusive online venue where attendees of the International Stroke Conference are able to login (using last name and badge number) and view all scientific posters presented at the meeting. All posters uploaded to the ePosters online portal have the opportunity to include an audio and video counterpart to their presentations.
As a poster presenter, it is mandatory for you to upload your poster to the ePoster site. An e-mail with instructions on how to upload to the site was/will be sent to all poster presenters in early 2022 from firstname.lastname@example.org. Benefits of uploading your ePoster with audio and video:
- Broader reach of your study: Thousands of attendees can access your science through ePoster workstations or their own computers by logging in to the International Stroke Conference Web site.
- ePosters with audio gives you the opportunity to pre-record a brief discussion of your study to enhance and reinforce the information on your poster.
Online Submission for Poster Presentations: ePosters
Instructions to upload your poster electronically were/will be sent to you via e-mail in early 2022. Please check your spam/junk filter if you do not see the e-mails in your Inbox and add this address to your contact list: email@example.com. Poster presenters, please remember that it is mandatory for you to upload your poster electronically prior to the conference. This will give more people the opportunity to view your science.
If you do not receive an e-mail with ePoster information and instructions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
