Before the conference
1. Plan your schedule to optimise your time
Check out the conference programme on the event website and then organise your personal attendance schedule via the online event platform or mobile app (available one week prior to the conference).
2. Familiarise yourself with the online platform
Login information and guidelines on accessing the online platform will be sent to you one week before the live event: Login, test your system, audio and video connections and download the mobile app. Take time now to familiarise yourself with the online environment. For the best experience use a laptop or desktop rather than mobile devices.
3. Create your profile for better networking
Optimise your online profile for online networking: Add a picture, short biography and links to your social networks. Your contact information is only available to those that you agree to connect with.
4. Set reminders for live sessions
With more distractions in the home, office or lab environment it’s easy to miss the live sessions: Set calendar reminders for sessions you want to attend live – attending live is your only chance to ask questions and interact with the speakers.
