Information for speakers

We are keen to ensure our speakers are able to deliver their presentations. For speakers unable to attend due to travel restrictions, C3DIS has an excellent network setup (provide by AARNet using Zoom technology) that offers the ability to present remotely, or to provide a pre-recorded session that can be displayed during the session. This technology also offers the ability to have audience participation via Q&A sessions following your presentation.

Please contact us as soon as possible with details of your remote presentation format and how you would prefer to run it. There are a few options and combinations that need to be worked through so as to make sure that both you, and the conference delegates, have a good experience

Information for our community

We understand that this is a worrying time for many in our community. We want to assure attendees that the C3DIS Organising Committee is monitoring the situation as it evolves, and has plans for all possibilities.

Information regarding our cancellation policy is clearly displayed on our website, and also formed part of the Terms and Conditions accepted as part of the registration process.

We will continue to update you as new information becomes available, both by e-mail and on our conference web site.
