Following the success of the 2023 hybrid IMC, more than 2,300 registered delegates are planning on attending IMC 2024 in person. However, we hope to provide a high-quality working platform for anyone who is unable to attend in-person, via our virtual platform.  This is why we are delighted to be working with the Conference Exchange (Confex) to provide a virtual platform for IMC 2024 once more.

Congress Director, Axel Müller said: ‘We are very pleased to be working closely with Confex again this year. As we get closer to IMC 2024, both the IMC team and Confex are working hard to deliver a top-quality experience for colleagues across this hybrid platform’.

As in previous years, the Confex virtual platform will enable attendees from around the globe to participate live in IMC sessions both as presenters and audience members, while also facilitating simultaneous participation for speakers who are unable to present in Leeds in-person.

If you are no longer able to attend or present in person, it is essential you let us know by emailing as soon as possible so that we can update our records and make the necessary arrangements to support the hybrid delivery of your session.

The platform will be accessible via desktop/laptop devices, as well as via native apps on iOS and Android via the Apple App Store and Google Play store respectively.

As at the most recent IMCs, all sessions will be recorded with the recordings available via the platform from around 48 hours after the session finished until 31 August 2024. At the time of writing, only two out of the 721 sessions have been requested not to be recorded. The status of the recordings will be clearly marked in the IMC 2024 app. Recordings will only be accessible by registered IMC delegates but if you do not want your session to be recorded, please let us know as soon as possible so we can quickly remove the session from the recording list.

Confex will also contain a wide variety of different of different functions. This includes firstly the ability to schedule events, workshops, excursions, and reception efficiently on the same schedule as your sessions and round. Confex also has helpful maps and plans of campus, as well as networking and socialising tools which enable colleagues to connect with old and new friends during the IMC. Delegates are also given the chance to generate their certificate of participation to proudly present to their friends, family, and institutions.
