1. What is a virtual conference?
A virtual conference is hosted entirely over the Internet. It will allow attendees to access live and hear presentations from their computers. Attendees participate through a conference website designed specifically for the virtual conference. Similar to a physical conference, there are keynote speakers, paper, panel and poster sessions, as well as sponsor booths. You will be able to ask questions and interact with speakers, sponsors and attendees in real time.
2. What are the technical requirements needed to participate?
To participate, you need an Internet connection and web browser. For the best viewing experience, we recommend Google Chrome. Internet Explorer is not recommended as some functions, may not be fully supported.
We’ll be streaming in HD but some computers and internet connections may not quickly auto-adjust to a lower resolution stream. If you experience buffering or issues with viewing the video stream, you may have a better viewing
experience by reducing the quality to SD manually.
3. Do I need to download Zoom/Webex or other conferencing software?
No, you do not need to download any conferencing softwares as all attendees will join the virtual conference directly from the conference website. No installations will be required.
4. What happens once I register?
Once you register, you will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to connect to the conference.
5. Will I have access to the recordings and presentation materials?
All presentation materials will be available on the conference website for download. Please note some of the materials may not be available due to copyright issues. Some of the conference sessions will be recorded and posted on this site at the end of the event, so you can view any missed sessions at your convenience.
6. What if I can’t make the time to attend a particular session?
All sessions will be uploaded on the virtual conference website which you will be able to access up to 3 days after the conference. So it is better than a physical conference where you would have to choose between simultaneous sessions.
7. Who do I contact for technical help if I continue to have access problems after troubleshooting on my own?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for technical assistance.
