Some "good to know" information:

- If you don't have Zoom installed, you may launch Zoom from your web browser by clicking the link in the invitation (however, you may have local IT settings that may hinder this action) (see https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362593-Launching-Zoom-from-a-web-browser).

- You may log on/log off as you wish during the day.

- There are almost 180 registered participants!

- Due to this, you will be on mute and camera off from the start in order not to disturb the presentations.

- During the presentations, you may use the "Chat" to type your questions. The moderator will select from these and ask the presenters.

- The speakers have received specific information in a separate email.

- If you have any issues with Zoom, please use the "Chat" or send an email to eswg2021@gmail.com, and we will do our best to help you.

- Unfortunately, we will not be able to record the presentations. We will however try to share as many PowerPoints as possible (if the presenters give their consent) after the meeting.


We are looking forward to the event and hope that you will find it interesting! If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.


Best wishes,

Andreas, Bo and Denise
