The organisation of the parallel sessions on the final programme will try to take into consideration, as much as possible, the differences of time zone of delegates.

This is a provisional Programme and therefore it could be suject to changes.

Registrations close on the 30th of September. The final programme will be released after the 5th of October.


All online sessions of the conference run on Zoom, a platform for video conferencing, collaborative tools, document sharing and discussion forums.

In order to access the sessions, delegates are required to have:

  • A computer or laptop with camera, microphone and headphones

  • A good Internet connection, preferably cable or Wi-Fi

The use of a smartphone is strongly discouraged. The size of the screen makes it difficult to attend and participate in the best possible way all activities. In this case, the use of a tablet is preferable, although the best options are to follow the conference programme on the computer or laptop.

Training and test sessions will be held on a personal basis by the technical staff, for registered participants, in the two weeks before the conference.

Each Session will have a Chair and technical support (in English or French) in order to facilitate the participation of everyone registered. Tests will be hold in the previous week. More information will be provided by e-mail to delegates in due time.
