The Exoplanets 3 Online event will be more than just a series of talks. We intend to make it a pleasant and interactive experience, in which you can get to know new colleagues and discuss interesting science, in addition to listening to online talks and viewing online posters.
The entire event will take place on a new platform called the Virtual Conference Center (VCC). You will be able to access it through your usual login for Exoplanets 3.
The VCC is a web portal that gives you an overview of all the scheduled talks and posters. It is the starting point (and point of return) of your conference experience:
The actual video conferencing will be via Zoom. You do not need to know the Zoom URL. From within the Virtual Conference Center there are buttons that get you straight to the correct zoom room. No password is needed. Should you be asked for a password, log out of zoom entirely and click on the button in the VCC again.
When entering zoom sessions, please abide by our zoom etiquette, which is described here.
The text-based communication between participants, as well as announcements from the organization, is organized via exo3.slack.com. It is important that you sign up on the exo3.slack.com workspace, which you can do by clicking the corresponding button in your registration form.
To make it as easy as possible for other participants to reach you, you are kindly (but strongly) recommended to enter your Slack ID (the one for exo3.slack.com, not for one of your other Slack workspaces) into your registration form. Likewise it is kindly yet strongly recommended to enter your Videocall URL into the registration form. Both things will then allow others to reach you with a single click of a button on your abstract page or name tag page.
