Connection to the live stream of your Session will become available 30 minutes before the start of your session. Please join 25 minutes before the start of your session, in order to participate in the Practice Session, during which you will be guided through the Whova functionality that you will need for your presentation.
Although the format of the virtual HCII 2022 program has changed (spreading the duration of the conference to six days), the nature of paper presentations is not affected.
Papers will be presented during the 2-hour parallel sessions of the Conference, each with up to 6 papers. Each paper will be allocated up to 15 minutes of presentation time, with an additional period of up to 5 minutes for questions and answers (Q&A) immediately after the presentation.
The Session Chair will introduce the speakers and moderate the Q&A. Unless it is absolutely necessary, the order of presentations within a session should be kept as listed in the Conference Program. In case a problem arises with a particular presentation (e.g. temporary technical difficulties), the Session Chair will make the necessary adjustments to the sequence of presentations of the session, allowing time for the technical problem to be fixed.
The HCII2022 virtual conference will be using the award winning Whova events platform. Conference participation will be available both through a web browser and the Whova mobile app. For the live running of sessions, Zoom will be used embedded into Whova platform. In this way, conference participation will be focused on content, rather than handling different applications.
Additional guidelines and specific instructions about how to access the on-line sessions of the HCII2022 virtual conference will be provided to the presenters by email and will be made available through their HCII 2022 CMS account closer to the event. At the same time, presenters are advised to review the Whova Speaker Guide.
