Taking aluminium to new horizons

Virtual Conference - 6-7 October 2021

Frequently asked questions

@ How can I listen to talks?

Using our virtual conference platform is easy as ABC. You do not have to download or install anything and you do not need enormous internet access. You first have to register. Then you sign in and prepare for the meeting.

Please note, that we will use e-mail addresses given by your application.

During the conference we will stream pre-recorded presentations, each session will be ended by a live Q&A panel. The presentations will be available during 1 month after the congress for registered participants only.

You can ask our presenters in writing. In case we cannot answer all questions in the Q&A panel, we will provide you with a written answer.

Our stream will be transmitted by Vimeo, it might be blocked by some firewalls (mainly in big institutional architectures), if you know any issues on your network, contact your system administrator to allow Vimeo prior to the event.

@ How can I present a talk?

We ask our presenters to record their presentations and send the recordings to us before 20 September 2021. During the conference we will stream pre-recorded presentations, each session will be ended by a live Q&A panel. We ask you to be present at the questions of your session by using Zoom. You will be notified on detailed timing and the Zoom link itself soon.
