Conference platform

All participants who have paid their conference fee in full and on time will receive their access data by e-mail a few days before the event starts. If you have not received your access data by 17 September 2021, 14:00, please contact Ms. Beatrice Hensel ().

To use all features of the conference platform, you need an up-to-date browser and Zoom. Further information on the technical requirements can be found here.

Immediately after logging in with your credentials, you will be directed to the conference platform, which will be the central access point on the web throughout the conference. Here, all the platform's functionalities are available to you clearly and intuitively.

*A video introduction to the conference platform is available here.
