A moderator collects audience questions in chat. Everybody will be muted, and all interactions with the speaker are going through the chat with the moderator. Abuse of the seminar will not be tolerated.

Seminars will be recorded and available on the webpage a few days later. Please note that you may be recorded if you activate your video or speak during the seminar.
