How will ESCAIDE work in hybrid?
This year, ESCAIDE will be a hybrid event for the first time. We are working hard to integrate the two experiences and connect in-person and online attendees.
Conference venue: Münchenbryggeriet, a conference centre in central Stockholm. The venue will host the sessions, including plenaries, oral abstract sessions (Firesides), poster exhibition and tours, side events and info stands. Find out practical information about attending in-person here.
Online platform: Swapcard, which was used for the 2020 and 2021 online editions of ESCAIDE.
All sessions at ESCAIDE 2022 are hybrid - they will take place in the conference and be live streamed online, with interaction from both audiences. Speakers may be in-person or online.
During sessions, the in-person and online audience will be asked to post their questions in the ‘Questions’ function in the Live Discussion on the session page in the Swapcard app using their mobile phone, tablet or laptop, so the moderator can monitor all incoming questions. You can always find the session page through the Programme.
Follow the link below to find out practical information about attending in-person, with information about the venue, your ticket, travel and accommodation.
Conference online platform (web browser and mobile app)
The online platform is for all ESCAIDE attendees - both in-person and online.
The platform will everything you need to attend ESCAIDE in-person or online, including the full programme information, live-streamed sessions, all abstracts, the virtual poster exhibition and interaction features to engage in sessions and interact with other participants.
During sessions you can comment and ask questions in the live discussion pop-ups to contribute to discussion and put questions to the panel during the Q&A, polls and word clouds will also appear here during sessions.
Access the platform
Both online and in-person attendees will receive an email shortly before the conference to gain access to the conference platform (Swapcard), from firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can sign into the ESCAIDE app with the same credentials as your Swapcard profile.
Complete your profile
Your link to the Swapcard platform will take you to your pre-created account. You will need to add a password. ESCAIDE 2020/21 attendees, who permitted for their accounts to be retained, will be able to use the same account as before, as long as they registered with the same email address.
We strongly encourage you to complete your ESCAIDE profile on Swapcard, which will allow other participants to find out more about you and make connections with you. Speakers and moderators will have their profiles linked to their sessions. Abstract presenters will also be linked to their abstracts, so participants can view abstracts and posters, find out which session they will be presented in and reach out with questions or collaborations!
Please note that your profile is accessible to all registered participants in the conference (although attendees will have the option to make their profile not visible to others).
