Technical Requirements

 

 

Dear participants at the IKT 2020 Virtual Meeting,

We are looking forward to seeing you at our IKT 2020 Virtual Meeting this Saturday and Sunday.

IKT curators and cultural producers from all over the world will virtually meet for an inspiring and informative program at a time when physical gatherings are sadly not possible.

This is your link to join us on both days: https://hopin.to/events/ikt-digital-2020

You will land on the event home page, click on the blue "Join event" button, afterwards on the "Sign in" link at the top of the page. Enter your email address and password from the registration – and with one click, we will all be together! The program will start on "Stage" at 15:00 CEST | 9AM EDT promptly (see below for more details).
 
IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE TECHNICAL GLITCHES; HERE ARE A FEW IMPORTANT AND HELPFUL NOTES:

BROWSER
We strongly recommend using the most recent version of Google Chrome. Alternatively, the latest version of Microsoft Edge also ensures a stable connection. Other browsers like Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi or Safari do not fully support our conferences platform, thus causing major problems in audio and video connectivity.

HARDWARE
A computer or laptop is required, as tablets and mobile phones are not capable of handling this conference. The use of a high-quality headset would be helpful as it will significantly raise the intelligibility of your voice.

INTERNET
If your online workstation is integrated into a restrictive network (e. g. in a corporate structure, hotel et cetera), you might encounter some connectivity problems. Further information for your administrator are to be found here. Connecting to the conference while using a corporate or personal VPN network is not possible.

CAMERA
For those who hopefully intend to actively engage in the program by sharing camera and microphone: if you have any problem sharing video and audio, you might need to allow both camera and microphone in the privacy settings of your browser, otherwise you won’t be able to use them. For Google Chrome it is located under “Settings” - “Privacy and security” - “Site settings” - “Camera”.

START
In order to allow everyone to familiarize with the platform, the conference link will be open for access at least one hour prior to the start time. The program will begin promptly at 15:00 CEST | 9 AM EDT on the “Stage”. Open discussions will take place (as scheduled and announced) in the “Sessions”, and we deeply rely on your active and engaged participation! 
You will find the “Stage” and “Session” icons to the left of your screen once you access the platform.

We’re looking forward to digitally meeting you all this weekend.
Take care and all the best,
The IKT board
with the host Marta Herford
