Dearly invited speakers, presenters, and all audience, in aiming for a successful virtual symposium, we hugely appreciate your cooperation and support regarding several technical things. As a virtual communication differs from networking in person, some basic arrangements should be stated in utilizing technology to interact.

  1. Always switch your microphone off when not in use
  2. Introduce yourself whenever you start speaking and let people know when you finish (e.g. “Thank you” or “back to you”)
  3. Talk slower and louder than usual
  4. Try to build a two-way interaction
  5. Strict time-keeping
  6. Give every participant an equal chance to engage or contribute
  7. Avoid wearing green clothing and/or bright patterns (dark jacket with an inner solid-color clothing preferred)
  8. To ensure good picture quality, avoid excessive, fast movements
