You can participate in sessions and view live presentations using Webex online meeting tool. Please, feel free to ask questions using the Chat window at the end of the colleagues’ presentations.

If you do not have any experience using Webex or you are not sure about your equipment, we offer you the test workshop meeting to test the equipment and get familiar with Webex. On 15.05.2020, you can join us any time from 15:00 till 18:00 (UTC+3). Our tech team members will be online and will provide support and assistance; some chairpersons also will be available at that time.
