Participating in Live Q&A as a presenter from a HUB.
You will need to use a laptop (either your own or someone else’s) or desktop computer to participate in the Live Q&A. We recommend NOT using a mobile device or tablet.
As a presenter at a hub, you will be able to use a quiet space away from the live audience to join in live Q&A from your laptop ONLINE – Unfortunately, we do NOT have the facilities to conduct a live on-stage Q&A with a camera operator.

Join your conference session, AT LEAST 30 minutes before the start time. Your session host will test your audio and camera settings. Participate in the Q&A from your device either from home or from the hub in a quiet room.
PRESENTING ONLINE USING OnAIR
USE GOOGLE CHROME
Please make sure you log into the platform using CHROME. Other internet browsers such as, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Safari etc DO NOT support presenting within the OnAir platform. If you do not have Chrome installed, please download and install it prior to the start of the conference.
Click Here to install Chrome
USE A DESKTOP COMPUTER OR LAPTOP
If you have the ability to use two screens this will mean you can have multiple functions available to view easily. For example, if you are presenting live and sharing slides, you will be able to view the live Q&A and chat functions within the platform. This is not essential.
STABLE INTERNET CONNECTION
Make sure you have a stable internet connection (2Mbps upload, 4Mbps download or better). If possible, use a wired internet cable for stronger and more reliable connection.
You can test your Internet connection speed at SpeedTest.net
TEST YOUR CAMERA & MICROPHONE
Please ensure you have tested your microphone and webcam settings before your session. We strongly encourage using a headset with an inbuilt microphone for the best audio. This is especially important if you will be presenting from a shared space.
Live support will be available throughout the conference opening hours and will include dedicated IT/AV support. If you require assistance at the time of your presentation, you should contact support by either.
ACCESSING THE PLATFORM WITHIN YOUR WORKPLACE
If you will be participating in the conference from within your workplace, you will need to ensure that your workplace firewall does not block access to the streaming platforms of the sessions and networking functions. You should check access with your IT department as early as possible as it may take a few days or weeks for your request to be processed.
Below is a list of all the streaming platforms that will be used during the online conference. Your IT department will need to whitelist these programs to enable you to access the online events.
*These are not weblinks and cannot be tested through pasting them into an internet browser
Please note: If you are accessing the platform using Google Chrome, then you should experience no issues gaining access to the online conference portal from within your workplace. If the above sites are not whitelisted, then your organisation may block access to the streamed presentations and conference sessions and you will not be able to watch any of the sessions.
If you have any concerns about accessing the online conference portal, please email email@example.com
The IP addresses used for Twilio REST APIs are highly dynamic, and span a large range, so it’s impractical to list each of them. Instead we recommend you allow all outbound HTTPS traffic to any *.twilio.com subdomain
PUBLICATION OF PRESENTATIONS
Availability of presentations following the symposium
Presentations will be made available to registered delegates for viewing in the ABC Online Conference Portal following your presentation for ABC unless you advise otherwise. Any additional files authors choose to share, as well as live Q&A/discussion forums, will also be available to view during and after the presentation. Access to the Portal will be password protected and limited to only those registered at the time of the conference.
If presentations are to be used or published in any other format or forum, your specific consent will be requested.
Please ensure you have permission to use any images, music or content within your presentation. If you do not have copyright permission, your presentation will not be able to be used or published. Do not include any images copied from the internet. Getty Images and other image agencies crawl the internet looking for images that have been copied without the appropriate licences.
Consenting to have your presentation available in the portal or used in an alternative publication will not affect your ownership rights. The convention committee, the GSA or Conference Design will not acquire the ownership rights of your presentation should you agree for it to be included or used.
Will people be able to record or download my presentation?
During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual convention Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of convention material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
Presentations in the portal are available only to view and cannot be downloaded.
