Virtual Conference Instructions

  For the virtual DSN’21 conference, we are going to collect the presentation videos and slides from the authors. The presentation slides and videos will be posted on a password-protected website prior to the conference and remain accessible to the registered attendees throughout the conference. The attendees can participate in the paper discussions asynchronously via Slack channels. In addition, we will arrange a video conferencing Q&A session for each paper, where the authors will answer live.
