I HOPE THE EVENT IS NOT DEATH BY POWERPOINT!
No; not at all. Indeed the structure of the day will evolve in response to pariticpant priorities.
All day virtual conferences are very demanding. This event includes a variety of activities including short 15 minute lecturettes on specific issues with follow up panel discussion shaped by the audience.
The event is highly structured in the morning but the afternoon workshops are designed shaped by the participants themselves from the morning activities and outcomes. You actively can help shape the focus of these sessions using the conference white board MURAL.

Meeting Instructions and links We are using Microsoft Teams which has advantages and disadvantages so to help everyone can you please observe the following rules.
Please keep your video and mike muted unless speaking or in a panel. In large audiences having your video on or mike unmuted will make you appear in the main grid and create background noise and echo.
Please use chat for questions and comments. Preface any question with ? for the chat moderators.
To join other team rooms from the main conference you will need to exit teams and return using the new link. You return to the main conference room at any time using the link but again have to leave the session you are in.
Given numbers of participants all questions and comments will be fed in to panel discussion by chat moderators. Allowing people to ask questions using an open mike will take time (apologies as I know this does stifle interaction). However, your chat question will be attributed.
