„In 2021, we had the ENC-ASC for the first time in a video format, as ECCMID 2021 was held solely online. As this video platform proved to be very successful, we will continue to offer the ENC in a video format for 2022. Videos will be placed on the ECCMID platform, as well as onsite on screens where people can watch them. Being the representative of the Polish Society of Microbiologists, we are pleased to inform you that ESCMID will again offer our Affiliated Societies (AS) the opportunity to present themselves using a video at ECCMID 2022.
An ESCMID council meeting is also planned to take place during ECCMID; more information will follow at a later stage.
The society video will be uploaded to our ECCMID platform, so people can watch it virtually. We also plan (for the hybrid congress) to show them onsite on screens in a dedicated area.
Format of the video:
The video should include an introduction, general information about your ESCMID Affiliated Society, as well as a look at what is new for 2021-2022. For those who produced a video for the ENC 2021, you might can recycle some of the content. It could be also made as a recorded PowerPoint presentation (ppt) with voice-over. Please see below the requirements for ENC-ASC videos:
