Virtual Participation

For VIZBI 2012 we will offer for the first time 'virtual participation', which allows access to a live web stream of high-quality video covering all scheduled talks during the main conference (does not cover tutorials). The web streaming service also allows virtual participants to type in questions for the speaker via chat, which are passed to the session chair during question period at the end of each talk. Virtual participants cannot upload a poster, but will see the poster fast-forward presentations, in which each poster presenter introduces their work; they can also access posters online via the posters page, and can contact poster presenters via chat. You will also be able to access the talks after they have finished, thus making it easier for virtual participation from different time zones. We recommend you first test the video streaming on your system using EMBL's Media Requirements page. The registration deadline for virtual participation is 2 March 2012.
