VIRTUAL PLATFORM INSTRUCTIONS
FEW TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THE ISS2021 EXPERIENCE
Prepare your virtual attendance in advance and treat the virtual meeting as an in-person conference with respect to your calendar and task load.
Block your calendar, mark the sessions you want to view live, prioritize the time to be truly present in the experience and engage with the sessions and presenters.
Find a comfortable spot with stable internet connection; test your speakers, microphone and camera.
Block off time in your day to attend especially if sessions are live vs pre-recorded. Attending live has huge benefits like interacting with other attendees and having your questions answered directly by the speaker.
The ISS2021 Symposium will take place online as a virtual event from May 1 to 5, 2021.
Registered delegates can access the ISS Platform using the access code the Organising Secretariat will send by email by the end of April 2021 as login details here: https://www.webiss2021.com/
Please note that the platform will be accessible starting from April 30th at 16.00.
Sessions in the scientific programme will take place live and interactive at the provided time; all mentioned timings refer to the Central European Summer Time Zone.
Recordings of all sessions will be available afterwards; access will be limited to registered delegates until end of 2021.
Delegates must ensure that they meet the technical requirements necessary for participation in the ISS Symposium. In order to connect to the platform, the following needs will be required:
– A stable internet connection with a minimum of 5 MBITs (data speed)
– A browser in an up-to-date version e.g. Chrome©, Firefox© or Safari©.
We recommend the participation via PC/Mac Computers. Cookie and Pop-Up blocking measures may lead to problems; make sure that you disabled any of these. On smartphone/tablet devices only basic viewing features are being supported.
The platform is entirely web based so it is not necessary to install any software on your device.
Use of mobile phone is not recommended.
The organisers are not responsible if users are unable to successfully access the ISS Symposium if they do not fulfil the technical requirements.
