We'll be using a combination of our integrated platform virtual delivery for some sessions and Zoom for some sessions. Most sessions will be delivered "webinar" style so you will not need a camera or microphone. However, a few sessions will be "meeting" style and are intended for more direct participation so a camera and audio are recommended. Webinar style sessions are be identified by a headphone icon like this: . Interactive sessions use Zoom and are identified by a square containing an up arrow icon like this . Video/audio participation is encouraged but not required for these interactive sessions.
For our interactive Zoom sessions, you can download and use our virtual backgrounds.
You will not need to download any software to use our integrated virtual delivery. For Zoom sessions you may use the Zoom application if you have already installed it or want to install it. You will have a better experience with the Zoom desktop client. To join a Zoom session via a browser, click Cancel on the dialog to download and run zoom.us. Click on the link to run from your browser.
We recognize that networking is an important part of the Conference. To give you the best posible virtual Conference experience, we've added new features to the Conference App to help you network with other attendees, speakers and exhibitors.
You will be able to add interest topics to your profile and "discover" others that share similar interests in the Networking module.
Your personal contact information (email, phone, address) will not be shared publicly in the app. Your personal contact information remains hidden unless you accept a Networking contact request. Then your email is available for that person to send email to you. You are in control!
You'll be able to control whether or not others can "discover" you as a potential contact in the Network module settings. See the App Help Networking video for how to do this.
Go to https://www.gishab.org/app to download the app for iOS and Android.
If you used the app for a prior event you may still be logged in to that event. Log out and log in again with your Conference credentials.
To remedy this, Force Quit the app and re-open it.
We've put together a series of short videos on how to use the modules within the Conference App.
