All of the presentations are already posted (see links above). The interactive part of #ESHE 2020 happens on September 24 and 25 (Thursday and Friday afternoon) from 1 to 5pm Central Europe Time.
Participants will have access to the meeting via links posted here and sent in an email on Thursday morning. During the moderated sessions, a session chair asks presenters to present 3-4 slides: a title slide, up to two question data slides, and a conclusion slide. Then we start moderated questions & answers and discussion of the presentation. The unmoderated sessions will take place in a virtual space meant to replicate the feel of poster sessions. There will be themed spaces where participants can meet, find people, and interact with each other. We ask that presenters have their presentations at the ready so that they can answer specific quetions that participants might have. Where you first meet is listed in the program (see link above).
A general assembly and an election of new board officers will also take place for members during the two day meeting. See below for more information.
Each partipant received an email with a username and password to log into the ESHE Conference web site. We are hosting the conference on a Google G-Suite platform, and so logging into the meeting web site is the same as logging into any Google account. Once you are logged in, you can go to the Classroom to see the abstracts and view the presentations. The first time you enter (be sure to be logged in with your ESHE credentials), you will be asked whether you are a student or a teacher. For this, you are a student.
The following instructions assume that you are using Google Chrome. It likely works with other browsers, but Chrome also likely does the best job managing your login. If you don't have Chrome, you can download it here.
Open Chrome. If you already have a Google account, you may want to log out of all accounts first by clicking on your account in the upper right corner. If you do not have an account or once you have logged out, click where it says "Sign in".
On the Choose Account screen, select "Use another account".
On the Sign In screen, use the login name we sent to you. Normally this should be the same name you use for your contact email with ESHE plus @eshe-conference.eu. If you have trouble finding this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now provide your password. Again, we sent this to you in an email. If you have trouble finding this, please contact us at email@example.com.
When you first log in, Google will require you to set a new password. It is important that you use something secure but also something that you can remember for the duration of the conference. Note that it is impossible for us to know your password once you have reset it. If you do have trouble afterwards logging back into the system, we can reset your password. We have also made your normal ESHE contact email address the recovery address for your password. Again, if you have trouble, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once logged into Google, you can click on the links in the program or follow the links to the meeting video feed. If you did not log out of all other Google accounts, then you might need to log back in to ESHE each time Google opens a new tab.
As usual, we will hold a general assembly during the ESHE 2020 meetings. We will open the general assembly when the meeting starts, and we will close it with a live video meeting at the end of the meeting on the 25th. Normally participation in the general assembly is for ESHE members only. At this event we will announce the winners of the student Pecha Kucha prize, the student poster prize, and the results of the ESHE board officers election. We will also do the usual business of reviewing the finances, announcing future meetings, and other general business.
The board officers election will take place on-line during the meetings. Each ESHE member will be sent a link to a web site where they can place their vote. The voting process will remain confidential. The current list of candidates is here.
