Instructions for online symposium
Please find always up-to-date instructions at this webpage.
Zoom 1 and Zoom 2 for main program
To enter the symposium, engage Zoom 1 well before the Opening of the symposium. You will be admitted to enter at 9.00 AM EET. To enter Zoom 1, use the link to be sent to the registered symposium participants by email.
To enter Zoom 2 for parallel session, leave Zoom 1 and enter Zoom 2 by using Zoom 2 link.
IMPORTANT: The Zoom links have already been sent to the registered participants by email. Please monitor your email and ensure they have not been filtered into your junk email box.
Technical requirements for participation and presenting
We recommend downloading the zoom client to join the event via your destinations zoom website. Joining the meeting also works via web browser. Sometimes some errors occur using a special web browser. If you have no experience so far, test it here.
If you are not able to present live due to technical restrictions for e.g. low internet connection, it is possible to send us a recorded presentation as well. We will show it online in the scheduled session. Please contact the symposium email latest on Monday 19 October for this option.
Virtual lobby for social program
For coffee and lunch breaks, the organizer will transfer you from Zoom 1 to the Virtual lobby. For this, accept the breakout room invitation (in a pop-up window). In case you do not find the invitation, check your display again as the invitation sometimes hides under other open windows.
In case you are in Zoom 2, you need to return to Zoom 1 first to be transferred to the Virtual lobby.
At the end of the coffee and lunch breaks, the symposium guests will be transferred back to Zoom 1.
Slack for interaction and support
For sharing thoughts, ideas, questions and further information during the symposium, we have created Slack channels for the use of the symposium guests. During the keynote and parallel sessions, as well as the social program, we look forward to having vivid discussions in Slack! The link to Atut2020 Slack has already been sent to the registered participants by email.
You will find different channels to be used during the symposium, for instance Zoom 1, Zoom 2 and Technical Assistance. You can use Slack for chat discussion concerning the keynote lectures, parallel session presentations, and many more.
Slack can be used with the browser or alternatively, you can download the Slack application to your computer or mobile device.
In Slack, you can also have a bilateral discussion with another symposium participant by using Direct messages.
We have been able to send the Symposium kit to the participants registered by 14 October, due to postal services.
Instructions for presenters
Present your full paper in 15 minutes by using a Power Point presentation or similar, to support your talk. Your presentation will be followed by Q&A for 10-15 minutes (including potential opponents’ comments). The full paper must be presented in English.
We ask you not to exceed your allocated time. Due to parallel sessions, this is critical to the overall success of the conference.
The parallel session presenters will prepare themselves during the preceding break. You will be asked to share your screen by yourself. However, for a back-up plan, we suggest that you send your Power Point presentation to email@example.com .
As the quality of videos in live streaming events is not appropriate, we ask you to avoid using videos in your presentation.
