  2. Connectivity: For best results during the meeting, we recommend using a hard-wired internet connection if available. Otherwise, please locate yourself as close to your router as possible. You may conduct an internet speed test prior to the meeting using this link (a minimum up/download speed of 1.5Mbps will help you to avoid connection difficulties).
  3. Accessibility: During the meeting you will be able to see and hear the live presentation, ask questions using the chat feature, raising you hand or by speaking.   
  4. Audio: For the best audio experience, we recommend using headphones during the meeting. This will help reduce background noise and offer a clearer audio feed.
  5. Visuals: For best viewing, we recommend using side by side view and adjusting your settings to view the presentation only and hide other participants.
  6. Resources: The conference agenda, workshop materials and other helpful documents are available to download.
  7. Security: For information security, please note that you must be logged in to your Zoom account to gain access to this meeting. Additionally, each registrant will only be able to log in using one device.
