A programme of pre-recorded presentations and live question and answer sessions will also be organised for all exhibitors to encourage discussions with delegates. Gold and silver sponsors will also be offered the opportunity to present their organisation during the live opening ceremony that will take place on the first morning of the conference.
You can view the virtual exhibition hall on page: https://hub.floodrisk2020.net/exhibition/, (click on the company nametag, once it is front-facing, to view their full exhibition booth) and a full description of the benefits of sponsoring and exhibiting at FLOODrisk2020 on https://floodrisk2020.net/sponsors--exhibitors/how-to-become-a-sponsor-or-exhibitor/.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our authors for submitting their papers and invite you all now to register to attend the conference online.
As announced earlier, the conference will take place entirely virtually and we are pleased to be able to launch the first version of this new virtual gateway on hub.floodrisk2020.net.
From there, those of you who have already registered will be able to access all virtual rooms, organised by themes with the addition of the special sessions, the virtual exhibition hall, the virtual poster hall and the virtual registration desk.
Please feel free to visit the website at will.
Those of you who have not yet registered will still be able to visit the exhibition hall and gateway homepage, which will give a flavour of what you can expect from the rest of the website.
From 7th June 2021, all delegates will be able to access video or audio presentations of all the papers, posters and exhibitors, submit questions and plan attendance of the live Question and Answer sessions. You will also be able to contact other delegates, arrange meetings or submit ideas for networking or pitching sessions to be advertised within the website.
If you are an author, you will be asked to provide, not only the PDF of your paper presentation but also a video or audio presentation. We would ask you to supply this to us, no later than 31st May 2021. You can find instructions on how to do so in the video on https://youtu.be/kXtwFZ4wV88.
Finally, you will see from the virtual conference gateway that the programme has not yet been finalised. We expect to be able to publish the virtual conference programme by the end of February 2021.
Features will continue to be added to the conference gateway so as to ensure that the FLOODrisk virtual conference is a highly interactive successful event that remains enjoyable and productive for all.
If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will very shortly be launching the new website for the virtual conference.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the main features of this new website before its launch.
Please click to view an introduction to the FLOODrisk2020 virtual conference.
As per our communication of December 2020, the FLOODrisk2020 conference will now take place from 21st to 25th June 2021 online. We have now updated the conference website on www.floodrisk2020.net with additional information on revised fees, new key dates and the organisation and format of this online conference.
The online conference will centre around a web-based gateway that will give delegates access to virtual rooms where they will be able to view video or audio presentations of the papers and posters, submit questions and attend live question and answer sessions with oral presentation authors.
Access will also be granted to a virtual exhibition hall where partners, sponsors and exhibitors will be able to publish posters, brochures, video presentation and access live chat with delegates from two weeks prior to the conference, throughout the conference and after the conference. A programme of pre-recorded presentations and live question and answer sessions will also be organised for all exhibitors to encourage discussions with delegates.
The web gateway will also include a networking area enabling delegates to contact their peers via a messaging service. Delegates would also be able to pitch ideas, prior to the event and invite delegates to attend live pitching sessions online during the conference.
All authors will be required to upload a video or audio presentation of their paper or poster no later than 2 weeks prior to the conference opening date when access to all presentations will be opened for all delegates. This should ensure that delegates have ample time to view presentations and submit their questions ahead of the live question and answer and discussion sessions, a programme of which will be published in due course. Access to videos/audios will remain open throughout the duration of the conference and after the conference.
We will provide help for all presenters on how to record a video or audio presentation and upload it to the web gateway.
We will strive to make the process of participating in this virtual conference as easy as possible, as enjoyable as possible and as rewarding as possible for all involved. To this end, we have decided to extend the deadline for paper submission by one month to the 11th February 2021, when the video/audio presentation system will also be opened. Please note that the registration to attend the virtual conference is now open on page www.floodrisk2020.net/registration/.
We have therefore decided to postpone the Budapest conference to sometime in 2024, specific dates for this conference will be announced in due time.
We hope to be able to welcome you online for the FLOODrisk2020 conference that will take place from 21st to 25th June 2021. Detailed information on the programme for this virtual conference and how to gain access and participate in the conference will be published in the new year.
For those of you who have already registered and paid to attend the conference, please note that you will receive a credit note for the registration fee as well as a new invoice for registration to attend the online event in January once the new pricing structure has been established.
In the meantime, we would like to wish you and your family a healthy and prosperous new year for 2021.
