Introducing the ARLDC21 Virtual Format

The Scientific Program for ARLDC21 will consist of invited speakers from across the world and accepted abstracts presenting interesting, key and late and breaking research from across the rare lung disease field.

The ARLDC21 two-day program has a number of interactive components, designed to allow participants from all around the world to participate live from wherever they are. Throughout the live program, there will also be various opportunities for networking, social chat and other activities to unite the participants of ARLDC21.


Virtual Conference Platform

The virtual platform will host and stream all presentation content throughout the conference. Delegates will be sent unique log-in links prior to the conference opening, and will be free to log-in and out as they chose.

Key Features

  • Unique registration and log-in with the ability for attendees to build and customise their profile for added networking
  • Device agnostic and can be used on desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone, making it more accessible to all delegates wherever they choose to participate
  • Virtual Exhibition
  • Meeting hub for delegate networking
  • Discussion forum, Q&A and handout distribution

Access to the ARLDC21 Virtual Conference Platform

Access to the platform will be via a unique log-in and available for six months after the conference. The platform is a repository for all the presentations and represents more than 15 hours of content.

All in-person delegates will also receive full access to the ARLDC21 virtual conference platform during the conference and for six months afterwards to re-watch all program content.

How will I engage with presenters and network online?

Q&A sessions

Each block of presentations will have a Q&A panel available at the end of the session. Participants can ask questions via the Q&A box on the virtual conference platform.

For attendees at Cliftons Melbourne, questions will be moderated live by the session chairperson. In-person and virtual attendees will have equal opportunities to engage with presenters.
