How to attend the live session during the virtual congress as a moderator
A few days before the 1st VEC 2020, you will receive an e-mail from M Events with the invitation link to the virtual conference room of your live session. To join the virtual conference room, open your personal moderatorlink to get to your session view:
On the top right corner of this page you will find a button “Join Meeting” which will open the assigned Zoom meeting of your session:
The Zoom application, that will open upon clicking on “Join Meeting”, can be used as a browser-based plug-in (on Google Chrome) or as a desktop client after downloading and installing the Zoom application on your computer. We recommend the download and installation of the Zoom application for the full functionality of Zoom https://zoom.us/download. If you cannot (or are not allowed) to download Zoom, you can access Zoom by selecting ‘join from browser’.
In Zoom you will be able to see and to communicate with the speakers, chairs and session technician.
Once you are connected to the Zoom meeting, please return to the Session-View-Page, which is still open in your Browser.
The Session-View-Page always opens on the “Chair-View-Tab” where you see an overview of all presentations of the session you are chairing.
Sessions will consist either of pre-recorded presentations or live presentations followed by a live discussion. When a session starts, the chairpersons will introduce the upcoming presentations and the technician will start the presentations. All speakers are kindly requested to attend the entire session, if possible, including the live discussion.
To see the slides being presented during your session, please click on “Live Session Slides” in the top right corner of the page (next to Chair-View). When presentation slides are played live, the “Live Session Slides” tab will show the round indicator “1”:

We aim to enhance optimal interaction with the audience during the live discussions. Therefore all sessions will feature a live chat box, where delegates can ask questions. The chairs will lead the discussion(s) and select questions from the audience.
Any technical questions to the technician can be addressed in the “Tech Chat” field:
In case you have any technical questions, feel free to contact the M-Events Support team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
A dedicated M Events technician and ESE staff member will attend each session to assist the chairpersons and speakers.
