How to ask questions: 

At the end of each talk, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Questions are being managed in the following ways:

  • You can virtually raise your hand. The chair for the session will unmute you and invite you to ask your question. Please note that this method should only be used during the designated Q&A session. 
  • You can also type your questions into the Q&A box. We encourage all attendees to actively participate in the Q&A by upvoting other attendees’ questions, and by submitting their own. You can post questions throughout the webinar, and the session chair will make every effort to ask all/the most voted questions to the authors at the end, during the allocated Q&A time. 

We will of course try to answer all questions during the Q&A, but if we run out of time, we will respond offline.
