Forum

The Forum is a space to post questions for the speakers to consider in the panels, and to engage in discussion with other delegates.

All delegates can view posts in the Forum. In order to comment or like posts in the Forum, delegates must 'join the community' by making their profile 'public' (meaning it can be seen by other delegates, not by the general public). This will also enable you to send messages to other delegates through the chat function. (See 'Manage your profile and notifications' above)

The Forum has dedicated sections to:

  • Submit questions for the speakers and breakout sessions

  • Chat and connect with other delegates

  • Ask the organisers any questions that you can't find the answer to in this Help section.

 

Submit questions for the speakers

Ahead of the panel sessions, you can submit questions for the speakers through the Forum. Questions will be shared with the panel chairs, and we will do our best to cover as many as we can during the panels. Breakout sessions will provide an opportunity for deeper and more discussion of some questions submitted.

When you click on the 'Questions for the speakers' section under the Forum (indicated above), you will see a dedicated section for each of the panel sessions. Click on the name of the session that you are interested in, and you will see a screen similar to that below.

Click the purple 'Ask a Question' button to submit a new question. You can see and vote on questions submitted by others. To vote, click on the title of the post, and click on the heart symbol below the question.

- Raise or discuss your questions or ideas after watching a live or recorded panel session

- Comment on notes from the breakout session discussions, which will be posted here in this section

- Start an 'interest group' discussion, eg. emerging scholars, regional areas, research topics

- Share information or make an announcement

Networking opportunities

Under the 'Network' section of the menu, you can view the profiles of other delegates.

 

Note that the search bar in this section will only pick up information from the profile cards (name and organisation), rather than the more detailed information contained in each delegate's 'About' section. If you wish to connect with other delegates around a particular subject, you may like to post in the 'Chat and connect' section of the Forum.

Chat and messaging

You can use the chat bubble in the bottom right hand corner to start a conversation with up to five other delegates.

Please keep in mind that delegates will have different preferences for connecting with others during the conference.
