  • Add sessions to your schedule by clicking the Attend button. You can also add sessions to your calendar.

General guidance about taking part in sessions

Most IDCC events are called Breakout sessions in Juno terminology. Breakout sessions operate like webinars and have the following features:

  • Everyone has control over their camera and microphone and can speak whenever they wish. We recommend you do not interrupt the speaker. The chair will instruct you how the session is running i.e. whether we take questions at the end of each talk or at the end of the session.
  • By default, people join a session with camera and microphone turned off. To avoid putting pressure on participants' wi-fi, we recommend you keep the camera and microphone off. If you wish to speak, we suggest you switch the camera on - it's nice to see who is talking.
  • There is a chat facility for general exchanges e.g. 'you're on mute'.
  • Use the Q&A facility for formal questions addressed to speakers.
  • Press the 'busts' button located under the screen to see who is attending the session.

In sessions called Panel/Main Stage, such as the Keynote Lecture, access is more tightly controlled. If you wish to ask a question, you will have to use the Raise Hand facility, as demonstrated in the video. The Chair of the session will invite you on the main stage to speak and only then you will be able to switch on their camera and microphone.

Hints and tips for a quick set up of your poster booth:

  • Fill in the fields on the Information page. See the Guide above for text formatting options.
  • Add your co-authors to the poster booth via the Members tab. You can work together on setting up the booth.
  • Also on the Information page, under Images, add an icon. The icon will represent your poster entry on the Poster Hall (poster index) page. If you don't add an icon, your poster entry will appear as an empty rectangular box.
  • Also on the Information page, add an image of your poster, unclear where on the web site this is gets listed but it's worth adding.
  • Add an image of your poster on the Rotator (carousel) tab. If you don't add anything in the Rotator, the top of your poster booth page will appear empty. You can add more items to the Rotator, for example a recorded video of your presentation, other images, videos, slides. Note, the Rotator moves relatively quickly so it's best if you add something that can be read fast, e.g. a slide with a key message on it, for example, a pointer to an ongoing project.
  • Add your actual poster, in .pdf format, under Resources. Delegates can download the file from here. You can add several resources, for example the slides of your rapid fire presentation.
  • Add contact details under the Metadata tab.
  • You can add other features, for example a questionnaire via the Questions tab, which will appear on the home page of your poster booth.
  • Set up times when you will be available at the poster booth.

Caution: Please save your changes in every tab. Do not move to another tab (i.e. from Resources to Questions) without saving changes or you will lose them.

Note: Juno are yet to provide image sizes for icon, image on the Information page, and the image to be added in the Rotator box. They will be published on this information page as soon as we receive them.
