Instructions for Participants

General access

All registered participants will receive access to the ICMI 2020 Ryver space (emails will be sent out soon). In the ICMI 2020 Ryver space, links are provided to access the papers, presentation videos, workshops, and the live keynote and live Q&A sessions (Zoom Webinar and Zoom Meetings).

Workshop organizers will receive separate login details for the Zoom accounts.

During keynotes and paper sessions

Participants are assumed to watch the presentation videos in advance. The paper sessions are live Q&A sessions. Each presenter has a breakout room in Zoom Meetings and accepts questions; participants are invited to ask their questions here. Participants can hop between breakout rooms. If participants have questions afterwards, they can still pose their questions through Ryver.

Keynotes are held in Zoom Webinar live and participants are invited to post questions or comments in the chat and upvote the ones they like. If participants have questions afterwards, they can still pose their questions through Ryver.
