Australia as a Risk Society:

Hope and fears of the past, the present and the future

29 March - 1 April 2021




Will I be able to share a powerpoint?

Yes, Zoom allows you to share PowerPoint presentations. Please make sure to familiarize with the platform before the event.

How long will my presentation be available on the restricted area of the website?

We would like all recordings to be available in a private area of the website until the end of the year. They will only be made available online if you consent in the registration form.

What do I need for my presentation?

A computer

A computer microphone or a headset

A webcam

Do you have a team of technical experts available to help?

We can provide some technical support during the conference and a testing session on March 22, 2021 at 9:30 (UTC+1), but speakers are responsible for presentations, their computers and internet connection, and they are strongly advised to test them prior to the conference.

What if I have a technical problem during the presentation or my child/cat wanders into the screen while I’m talking?

No one will mind and it may happen to lots of people. No one expected the current situation and we all have to acknowledge that.

If you have a question that is not covered here, please contact us at easanaples2020@gmail.com

Join the meeting with the provided meeting ID and password.

When you enter a session, your microphone will be automatically muted , unless you are the session chair or you are presenting a paper. If you leave Zoom on to take a break, make sure that your microphone is muted. If you leave your microphone on by mistake, it will be muted by the conference technical staff.


How to ask questions

You can join the discussion with other attendees and presenters by sending messages to “Everyone”. If you have a question, you can also click the “raise your hand” button. The chair will be notified that you have asked a question in the chat or that you have raised your hand. Only open your microphone when the chair asks you to do so.
