Practical Information - FAQ

The Scientific Committee of Paris Redox 2021 is organizing its 23rd International Conference as an Interactive Online Congress, with several sessions dedicated to Live Interactive Discussion & Networking.

Modality of the Presentations:

As the congress is exclusively online, the presentations will all take place on the congress platform. 

All contributions accepted by the scientific committee will be added to the specific conference platform prior to the conference, as indicated in the session of the program.

  1. All speakers will record their presentations prior to the event;
  2. The major speakers also have the possibility to present their talks live. In this case, the presenters should also record their presentation and send it to the organizing committee prior to the congress.

Due to restriction and time zone difference, a pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, October 13, 2021, for one month, via the use of access code.

How to Access to all Communications (à la Carte):

Upon registration, each pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, October 13, 2021, for three months, via the use of an access code. The "à la carte" presentations can be viewed in the comfort of your place.


Like each year, 3 awards will be given: the Best Scientific Contribution, Best Short Oral Presentation and Best Poster Presentation. The best poster will be selected by the vote of all virtual attendees.

Questions, Contact, and Networking:

The conference platform allows each participant to contact speakers, attendees, and sponsors. If you wish to submit your questions to speakers, you can do it before the meeting.

To make the congress even more interesting and interactive, the organizing committee of Polyphenols Applications 2021 decided to dedicate 2 zones of discussion on each day of the congress, according to different time zones. These Interactive slots and sessions will be reserved for the questions and comments that the attendees have for the speakers.

You can either submit your questions on the spot to live speakers directly after their talk or network with any speaker and presenter during the slot you chose to participate in.

 Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Interactive Online Congress?

An Interactive Online Congress means that the complete congress will be held virtually and the totality of the sessions will be available to all attendees. 

All attendees can contact and get in touch with all speakers, short oral and poster presenters and vice versa. As a result, all the online audience can come together, participate in the Congress and get the same experience and content at the same time, from different locations.

In case you were unable to participate in any of the interactive slots, the event will be recorded, and will be available on-demand after the event (for three months after the event) so you may watch it at your convenience, and as many times as you like to refresh your memory or study a particular talk.

Like the case of our in-person conferences, these virtual meetings feature a keynote lecture, discussions by the chairmen and short talks and posters presentations showcasing cutting-edge, emerging, and unpublished research.
