Information for Attendees

Dates

EAMS 2020 will take place between 22nd June and 1st July.

Accessing the conference

The conference is run entirely online. Live video sessions will be delivered through Zoom, while discussion areas and other material are accessed through our Moodle site.

Attendees will be given information on how to access the conference environment after registration.

Conference format

EAMS 2020 is an entirely online conference, with a mix of live sessions and web-based activities, with plenty of opportunity for discussion and collaboration.

Conference activities will be accessed through a Moodle environment.

To reduce burn-out from staring at video all day, we will employ a mix of live video, pre-recorded talks, and web-based activites.

Live talks will take place over Zoom, with recordings available later. Live sessions will take place at 9am or 4pm BST (UTC +1) each day.

We hope that the online format and longer timescale will allow participants to engage more deeply with the material presented.

Accessibility

All live sessions will have real-time closed captions. Recorded videos will have closed captions.

Conference material is accessed through a Moodle site; this site aims to conform to WCAG 2.0 guidelines.

Diversity

Our goal is to create an inclusive, respectful conference environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientations.

We’re actively seeking to increase the diversity of our attendees and speakers, through our calls for proposals, and through dialogue with the communities we serve.

This is an ongoing process.

Here are some ways you can help us build a more diverse conference experience:

We value diversity in the communities we bring together, and we welcome your contributions to bringing balanced representation of the richness of our collective human experience.

All attendees are required to abide by the conference’s code of conduct.
