Interaction with Oral Presenters

Oral presenters have the option to include a URL link to their own online personal e-meeting rooms (via Zoom, GoToMeeting, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, etc.) or institutional e-meeting rooms together with their availability, where they can then meet other delegates for interaction and discussion. You can create free zoom meeting rooms here: The presenter takes responsibility for these third-party links and the Organizers are unable to monitor them.
