Q. Will presentations be recorded?
A. Virtual conference presentations including live web sessions, anytime sessions, and poster presentations will be recorded. NASN's recording team will connect with the presentation's point of contact to schedule recordings in late May or early June. Presenters will be well prepared and rehearsed for the recording. 

Virtual conference presentations will be video recorded. Presentations must be 60 minutes in length; 60 minutes of lecture and audience engagement. Presentations that are less than 55 minutes do NOT meet the needs of the NASN conference schedule. Presentations that are longer than 60 minutes will “cut into” the post-session Q&A time. When recording the session, you may include pauses for audience engagement not to exceed one (1) minute in length. [Audience engagement such as Responses in Attendee Chat, Polls, and /or Case Scenarios.]

Poster presentations will be audio recorded. Presentations must be 15 minutes in length. One poster presenter per poster will be recorded.

Q. Will presentations be broadcast live?
A. Virtual conference live web sessions will be broadcast live. No other session types will be broadcast live. Presenters of live web sessions will meet with NASN virtually when their session is broadcast to review audience questions and prepare for the Q&A. Presenters will attend a technical training meeting a week or two before the broadcast to be oriented on this process.

Q. Will NASN photograph presentations at the conference?
A. NASN does have a photographer at the conference. Presenters grant permission to NASN to take photographs of them and to publish photographs in any format at NASN’s sole discretion.
