CW24 will take place as a hybrid event from the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.
If you are attending the event in-person, please find more information about the accessibility of the venue here.
In-person participants should bring a laptop and a good quality headset with microphone. Remember, this is a hybrid event and you will still be interacting with other participants virtually.
Hybrid participation will be facilitated using Zoom. All participants - both remote and in-person - will need to install their client, and make sure that it is updated to the latest version. We recommend that remote participants join with a good quality headset with microphone, plenty of screen space (either using a large monitor or second screen), a normally reliable WiFi signal or wired connection, and a quiet room where you are less likely to be disturbed (but we understand this might be difficult).
Transcription and captioning will be provided using Zoom and Otter.ai.
A CW24 Slack workspace will be available for participants to connect, engage in discussion, ask questions, and forge new collaborations. These conversations can persist long after the Zoom room has closed. The invitation link will be emailed to participants via the email they registered with.
We will likely be using Google Documents for collaborative note-taking and keeping everyone synchronised during CW24. The links to these documents will be shared with participants closer to the event. We’re happy to provide alternative options for collaborative note-taking such as Framapad.
For any keynotes and panels, we will make speaker slides available ahead of the talk to facilitate following along with the speaker.
We will encourage demo and workshop facilitators to do the same to make participation as smooth as possible. Accessibility of the session will be taken into account when evaluating session proposals.
If you have any questions about these practices or have additional ideas or requirements to facilitate your own participation in CW24, please get in touch with CW24 chair Patricia Herterich at email@example.com
