Welcome to the 12th EAPC World Research Congress Online 2022! Here is everything you need to know about the congress.

The 12th EAPC World Congress begins on 9th May 2022 in a purpose-built online Congress Platform, accessible to all delegates from wherever they live across the globe using your unique login which will be sent to all delegate in early May. All of the conference materials will remain available to delegates until 30 September 2022. Live interactive sessions are taking place from 18 to 20 May 2022. 

The congress live session timings are shown in Central European Time (CET) which is 1 hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

From 18 to 20 May, live and interactive sessions will all run on the hour. All times stated on the platform and in the programme are Central European Time. To fit with the online format, most of our speakers will only present a short summary of their work with most of the live session dedicated to discussion and debate. Full talks have been pre-recorded and are available on the congress platform from early May. Registrants can view these at a time that suits your own schedule. There is also a searchable database of posters.

To gain the most benefit, please view relevant presentations which have been uploaded by panel members before the live and interactive sessions.

Live sessions will be recorded and made available to view on the congress website until 30 September 2022. Create your own schedule to view pre-recorded sessions and live recorded session or to visit other areas of the congress platform whenever and wherever you choose.
