Navigating the Platform

The ISMB/ECCB 2021 virtual platform is divided up into several areas:

  • Sessions
  • Full Schedule
  • Research Exchange Forum which includes Exhibitors, Posters and Birds of a Feather sessions.
  • Café Connect
  • Your Personal Profile

You can always return to the main page by using Home Lobby button in the upper left or at the top of your screen. The left menu can be collapsed or expanded simply by clicking on the 3 bars on the top left corner. We recommend you take advantage of the in-platform tutorial at the bottom left called ‘Get Started’. This will walk you through not only your profile updates but other aspects of the platform as well.
