Online scientific conference
During the conference "Lively and IOR join forces for the sake of the environment", 25 speakers appeared in front of the cameras, with the remaining vast majority connected remotely. In addition to the speakers, 70 remote panellists also took part. There were two parallel stages operating during the event, and we prepared two sets of equipment to enable the on-site speakers' presentations, as well as the ones given by those who connected remotely from their homes and offices. Session moderators were on hand to talk and put questions to the participants, and the whole event was broadcast on two virtual stages on the event platform.
There were discussion panels held simultaneously on both stages, with panellists both on-site, in various conference rooms, and connected remotely. We provided a common environment for the debates and technical support for the speakers connecting remotely.
Simultaneous interpreting was provided during the inaugural session of the conference and the lectures were translated from Polish into English during the course of the event. We provided the necessary equipment for the interpreting and also created another virtual stage with the interpreted speeches.
The conference was also an opportunity for participants and panellists to interact. For this purpose, we prepared individual chat rooms on the event platform. Each virtual stage, sponsorship stand and individual poster had an individual chat room. In addition, there was a general platform-wide chat and technical support chat.
Additionally, each conference participant could send a request for an individual meeting with another participant, speaker or exhibitor. They could also send private text messages to other participants, all within the same platform.
Another element of the event was the Expo stands divided into different groups. Depending on the rank of the exhibitor or the sponsorship package purchased, dedicated Expo stands were prepared, and we also provided support for the exhibitors in designing them and supplementing their content. We also checked that the materials were displayed correctly.
Each participant also had the opportunity to complete their profile in the form of a business card with the option of adding graphics, links and information.
