How do I find the live Q&A session following on from a symposium?
The main programme lists all the links between paper sessions and follow-up interactive sessions. These are typically either straight after the papers have been presented or within an hour or so. The Q&A sessions are held in the Meeting Rooms. At any one time there maybe four or five different sessions running at the same time in the same break. Before you start out, you need to do some research and identify the sessions you want to attend and check which meeting rooms their feedback sessions are in and what time they start. ..
How do I meet people in the Forum?
Click through the menus to the 'Meeting Rooms and Forum' and then select 'go to zoom'. You will be in a ZOOM meeting with any number of other people present. If you are looking for someone, then you will need to do some searching.. Because there may be a lot of people it is probably best to use the 'chat' function to find the person and to 'chat' with them - unless you can find an empty Breakout Room to go into. Then you can have a more normal conversation.
We are having a technical problem. Who should we contact?
You can always email firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a lot of people working behind the scenes to keep things moving forwards, so you should get someone onto your issue very quickly. You can also contact Dave Bartram, who is the Chair of the organizing group, on Treasurer@intestcom.org
Where do I find the posters?
Posters in the Colloquium are not like posters in a normal conference. It is not practical to mount a large display on a board and then lose all the detail by photographing it to go noto a small screen. So, Posters are very much like Oral Papers. The successful poster submissions consist of an abstract which will tell you what it is about and then one or more downloadable files that provide a short presentation about the work it describes.(e.g. a 10-minute video, or some PowerPoint slides or a printed article). All the individual downloadable attachments are found in the Colloquium Gallery. If you use the menus to get to the Gallery, you will see a list of Posters there with the author's name and the unique reference number . Clicking on any name or number will open up the abstract and that will contain the links you need to click to get downloads.
How do I get download copies of materials provided by the speakers?
Just follow the instructions above for Posters and you will find in the Gallery lists of presenters of oral papers, symposia, keynote presentations etc, as well as posters. As the previous FAQ explains, you find the name of the presenter and click on it to open up their abstract and any downloads they have provided will be attached to that. Some will have bios and photographs attached
