When will the final programme be published?

the current version of the programme is available on the Programme page. There might still be some last-minute changes, so please check the Programme page and this link on a regular basis.

Where are the abstracts?

The abstracts for the general session papers are linked on the Programme page.

In which time zone does the conference take place?

Central European Summer Time. See e.g. here for a time zone converter.

Where can I find the Zoom links?

The Zoom links will be published in the Internal area of this website. You will receive the password for the internal area a few days before the conference.

Will there be an opportunity to talk to other conference participants outside of the Q&A of their talks?

Absolutely! We are going to have a Gathertown space for coffee breaks and social events that’s open all day.

I’ve never used Zoom, how does it work?

😮 Where did you spend the last one and a half years?!? – But seriously, it’s really easy and mostly self-explanatory. Just follow the Zoom link and you can join either via the Zoom client (recommended) or the web browser. You don’t necessarily need a Zoom account, you can just enter your name when joining the event. Please make sure that you’re using your full name so that we can identify you on the registration list – this is necessary to avoid Zoombombing and other disturbances.

I have never used Gathertown, how does it work?

We have prepared a short video tutorial.

Will the talks be made available after the conference?

We are planning to make some of the talks available online after the conference, subject to the permission of the individual speakers. The recordings will be edited so that no other persons except for the speakers are visible or audible in the videos (which also means that the Q&A will not be part of the pubished recordings). The original recordings will be deleted after the conference.

I need a certificate of attendance.

Authors and co-authors of accepted papers will receive a certificate automatically after the conference. If you haven’t presented a paper but need a certificate, please contact Stefan Hartmann (hartmast [at] hhu.de).

What’s the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?

Phew. For a second there, we were afraid that you were going to ask what “language” is (which is probably the much harder question).

I am experiencing technical issues during the conference (e.g. I’m unable to join) – what can I do?
