  • invited speakers will be delivering a range of plenary sessions, workshops and mini-symposia  
  • authors of accepted abstracts for the cancelled Hobart OSC will be invited to share material for view and comment before and after the meeting
  • a number of text-based chat sessions and virtual poster sessions are planned
