2020 CCPN Conference Online

Celebrating 30 years of triple resonance assignment, 16-17 July 2020


Ad Bax was going to be speaking to us at the conference in Ambleside, and we are delighted that he will still be able to join us online to celebrate 30 years of triple-resonance assignment methods and tell us about that time and talk about some of his more recent work.

In addition, Isabella Felli and Anja Böckmann will speak to us about assigning IDPs and solid-state samples along with some of their recent research.

Platform - Hopin

We are hoping to be able to run this as an interactive conference, not just a series of webinars. We have therefore decided to host the conference using Hopin. This is a platform that will run in Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers and is like a virtual conference venue, allowing conference attendees to interact with one another as well as view plenary talks.

Prior to the conference we will make a video available explaining how to use and navigate around the site. In mean time you can see a more generic Hopin demo here:


We hope to be able to run this flexibly with participants either able to watch demos or work through a tutorial of their choice in their own time. The CCPN team will be on hand to answer questions and help out via chat, video chat and screen sharing.


Poster Session

This will be modelled on the Chamonix solid-state NMR conference round tables: each poster presenter will get the chance to present their poster via screen sharing and discuss it via live video chat with a group of up to 10 people. Each session will be 15 minutes long and presenters are asked to present 4 slides (one of which is the title slide) in 5 minutes, allowing 10 minutes for discussion. Presenters may have other slides ready to show during the discussion if they so wish. In addition to the 10 people joining the (zoom-like) live discussion on-screen, other conference participants will be able to view (but not take part in the discussion).

We will be running the poster presentations in parallel to give as many people as possible the chance to present a poster.

Conference participants will receive an abstract booklet by Friday 4 July and be able to sign up to attend the poster presentations of their choice by Thursday 9 July. The timetable for the poster presentations will be made on the basis of people's options and we aim to publicise this by Tuesday 14 July.


Information for 'Poster' Presenters

Please prepare four slides (including the title slide) to present your work live in 5 minutes via screen sharing. This will be followed by a further 10 minutes of (zoom-style) online discussion with up to 10 others.

We hope to make 'posters' available to view throughout the conference as private YouTube videos (these cannot be viewed by anyone, even with a link, in contrast to public or unlisted YouTube videos). We we will be asking poster presenters to follow one of four options:

1) Send us your slides (Powerpoint/Keynote) in advance. We will turn these into a video which just flicks through the slides

2) Send us slightly modified slides (Powerpoint/Keynote) in advance. Since your live presentation may contain mainly images that you speak to, you may prefer to send us a slightly modified set of slides with more text for us to turn into a video that flicks through the slides.

3) Record yourself speaking over your slides (e.g. using Powerpoint or Quicktime) and send us a .mp4 or .mov file for us to upload.

4) Record yourself speaking over your slides (e.g. using Powerpoint or Quicktime), upload it onto your own YouTube channel and send us the video ID or link.

Please send your files to


We hope to see online you in July!
