What to Expect at the Remote Symposium
Updated 30th March 2022
We set out here what you are to expect from the meeting. Authors have provided papers for the proceedings in the normal way but they will also provide their presentations in advance. These will be played in the appropriate session following which they will be available (only to delegates) to view but not to download for about 14 days. We hope authors will be present at their session to answer questions in the discussion period in each session. The discussion period will not just be Q&A but will be a comprehensive discussion of the subject of the session.
The Symposium will be run from this website where there will be a delegates area (opening around 13th June) containing links to the sessions and other material. The live sessions will be run on the Zoom Webinar platform which is slightly different from Zoom meetings. Chair persons and authors will be assigned panellist status and will be visible to everyone but other delegates will not. However, if you are keen to contribute to any particular discussion then please let us know and, subject to the Session Chairs' approval, we will invite you to be a panellist.
You will be able to enter a structured session 10 minutes before the advertised start time. If the link does not work - refresh the page. The length of each structured session will vary up to about 2 to 2½ hours. It will start with the session authors being allocated panellist places on the screen. There will then be an introduction by the session chairs followed by the presentations which will be shorter than normal, generally about 12 minutes. At the end of the group of presentations there will be a discussion of the papers and more particularly of the subject or subjects surrounding them. The discussion periods, lasting up to one hour, will be the backbone of the Symposium where remote authors and other delegates have as much chance to contribute as possible.
We will update this page from time to time as plans develop so please come back occasionally.
