FAQS FOR DIGITAL SCIENCE PUBLISHER DAY 2022
What platform will the event use?
The whole event will be hosted online via the Crowdcast platform. You will need to register via Crowdcast here. You will receive one link to access the whole event and all sessions will be recorded and available to view afterwards, via the same link.
How can I register for the event?
You can register for free directly in Crowdcast by using this link. Once registered you will receive a confirmation email with a joining link, which is unique to you, so please do not share it. A reminder will be sent 10 minutes before the start of the event on the day. If you don’t receive an email or need any assistance with registration, please contact Sabia Morrison at email@example.com
What technical requirements do I need to access the sessions
What is the format for the day?
Most sessions will last around 45 minutes, including plenty of time for Q&A, and we will have regular 30 minute breaks.
All attendees are automatically muted when joining, but you can use the ‘Say something nice‘ chat window to communicate with organisers or fellow delegates and the ‘Ask a Question‘ tab for your questions to the speakers (see below).
All sessions will be moderated by the Digital Science organisers.
Questions for the speaker during their talk: Please use the ‘Ask a Question’ tab within Crowdcast to post questions for our speakers. There is a facility for the audience to up vote these, so our moderators can see which are the most popular questions and make these a priority for answering.
In some circumstances, we may invite you ‘up to the stage’ so you can ask your question in vision using your mic and webcam.
If viewing a recording, you have the ability to view the questions and skip straight to the answer in the video without having to watch it all the way through.
Questions/comments for your fellow audience members: There is a live chat facility that can be used for introductions, general chit chat, posting relevant links and clapping after the talk ends. The chat is open and available to use well in advance of the event, so we encourage you to get the conversation started early!
Please remember to follow our Code of Conduct when participating in the chat.
What if I can’t attend live on the day?
All sessions that are broadcast on Crowdcast will be available as a recording afterwards. Simply register for the event and you will be able to use the link in your confirmation to access the recording. We will also post all videos on the Digital Science YouTube channel.
