Video recording of the oral presentations.

Every year the NeuroPrion Association proposes to increase the impact of the oral presentations by giving its members the opportunity to take a closer look at each other's work.

The oral presentations of the PRION 2014 Congress will be video recorded. Each speaker will be requested to fill out a form to authorize the video recording and the publication of their oral presentations on the NeuroPrion Association private password-protected website.

After the Congress, each speaker who agreed to be video recorded will receive an email from NeuroPrion containing the link to the video of his/her oral presentation, for final approval. Hiding of several slides will always be possible.
