Due to the special situation of running the 20th edition of the conference in the virtual space, we all together must capacitate and prepare the program and the presentations to fit for a remote attendance. For this conference, we will use the Microsoft Teams platform. In this respect, we will create several virtual rooms such as every participant to have the possibility to move from one room to another at her/his convenience. The following rooms will be created:

  • ETRIA TFC2020 ORGANIZING TEAM ROOM (dedicated only to the local organizers)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 MEETING ROOM (dedicated to all participants, where everybody can enter and ask technical support from organizers)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 BOARD ROOM (dedicated to ETRIA Board)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 PLENARY ROOM (dedicated to plenary speeches, where all participants have access)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 SESSION ROOM A (dedicated for session presentations, where all participants have access)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 SESSION ROOM B (dedicated for session presentations, where all participants have access)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 MASTERCLASS ROOM (access is ensured at each masterclass only to preregistered participants)
  • ETRIA TFC2020 ROUND TABLE ROOM (access is ensured only to preregistered participants)

You will receive a message from the platform to adhere to every room where you will be registered by organizers. This means, every participant will have the possibility to access only those rooms to which she/he is registered by the organizing team. Microsoft Teams can be accessed from the browser or you can install it on your desktop (we strongly recommend the last option).

IMPORTANT: Starting with Tuesday, September 22, you will be registered in the rooms, and for every issue related to technical preparation of the conference, you will be able to address requests on the Microsoft Teams platform in the ETRIA TFC2020 MEETING ROOM. We will also schedule several preparatory meetings on this platform for those participants that are interested in more guidance.
