Our policy stipulates that at least one (1) presenter for each accepted abstract must be registered as a delegate for the Conference Community.

If presenters remain unregistered, the presentation may be removed from the program.

If multiple co-authors are planning to attend the conference, each co-author must register individually. For panel presentations, all panelists are required to register.

Registration for the Conference Community is free.

If you have any technical questions prior to your session, please contact mail@conferencedesign.com.au.

During your session

The Meeting Hub is a feature of the online system which allows you to engage in real-time discussions with other attendees.

When using Meeting Hub delegates can search for attendees, request meetings, and when accepted engage in a video conversation.

Your presentation must end within your allotted time. If you run overtime, your presentation will automatically end, and your audio will be muted.

For those submitting a pre-recorded session, video duration must be no longer than the time specified in the submission process. You will be asked to submit an edited video to suit the prescribed time if what you have supplied is too long.

You will need to use your own device for your presentation. You should use a laptop or desktop computer, rather than a mobile device or tablet.

Reset/review your internet browser permissions for your camera and microphone. For example, in Chrome, you can click on the small lock icon to the left of the URL to check on these settings.

When you share your screen during your presentation, attendees will see exactly what you see. This means you will not be able to use the presenter view setting in PowerPoint unless you have multiple monitors and can manage the screen sharing settings easily. For ease, we recommend you have your notes printed or a separate device.

Our Live Event Support Team is online and available for you at any time during the live event. If you have any questions or need technical assistance, click on the red Live Support icon in the top right of the screen.

After your session

All live video presentations are recorded. All live and pre-recorded presentations will be available to delegates after your session. Any additional files authors choose to share will also be available to view during and after their presentation.

Access to the virtual platform is restricted to registered participants only and cannot be found by search engines.

Yes. Following your session, we will send you a list of the questions that were posted in the Q&A function during your presentation.

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual conference Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of conference material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
