1) How do I access the program?

Participants and presenters registered for the 2020 Annual Meeting can view the Annual Meeting program online if they are logged-in to the ACUNS portal. If you are a current ACUNS member you can log in to the portal using your existing log-in information.

Please note: while your log-in details are the same for both the members’ portal and participants’ portal, current members need to have registered for the Annual Meeting to access the AM20 program pages. 

2) How do I log in to the portal?

To log in to the portal you can use this link to be directed to the log in page. Alternatively, you can click the person icon on the right-hand side of the menu bar from any page of the ACUNS website.

If you have forgotten your password you can use the “lost your password?” link on the log in page. You will then receive a password reset email. When you reset your password the system will automatically suggest a password. You can use their suggestion or delete the suggested password and replace it with something that is memorable for you. There are no limits on the length or number of characters.

3) How do I connect to the virtual meetings?

All meetings will be held using Zoom videoconferencing. Zoom is free and does not require you to set up an account. You can access the meetings in your browser; through the app; or by telephone.

Each panel will have a unique link for the “meeting room”. For security reasons this link is not posted on the website until 24 hours before the event. When the links are posted they will be available on each event page.

4) I have not used Zoom before, how can I test it out?

Each weekday from June 9 to June 24, ACUNS will be hosting a Zoom meeting so that participants can check their Zoom connection. You are invited to drop in to one of these sessions and do not need to pre-arrange to attend. The meetings will be held at a different time each day to include as many time zones as possible. The weekly schedule and Zoom links can be found on the page for the AM20 Program

5) Can I invite others to view the presentations?

When you enter the ACUNS portal you agree that you will not share any content from the portal. Sharing any Zoom links is not permitted. If you would like to invite others to participate you can encourage them to register by the deadline: AM20 online registration

6) How do I view panel details?

From the main program page you can switch between days or click on an event or seminar series for more details.

If you have selected a seminar series you will then see a list of panels. You can click on the title or “event detail” for full panel details.

Within each events you can read speaker biographies by clicking on the speaker’s name in the speaker section in the right-hand column.

7) Can I use powerpoint or other audiovisual aids?

Presenters in each panel may share their screens with the audience if they want to use powerpoint or other audiovisual aids. For instructions on screen sharing please you can check out this video from Zoom.

8) How long are the presentations?

Each panel is 60 minutes long with 30 minutes for presentations and 30 minutes for Q&A. Depending on whether you have 3 or 4 presentations on your panel each presentation is 8–10 minutes.

Time is allotted per presentation. If you are part of a co-authored paper you will have 8–10 for the entire presentation. It is your choice whether one author presents for the entire time or whether you split the presentation.

9) Do I need to submit my paper?

ACUNS does not require submission of papers.

10) I still have questions. How do I get more information?

If you have any additional questions you are welcome to email the Secretariat at [email protected]
