About the Hybrid Conference
What is a hybrid conference?
A hybrid conference combines a "live" in-person event with a "virtual" online component.
Delegates will have the option of attending the conference in Melbourne or participating virtually.
Face-to-face delegates will have access to all of the content live in the venue as well as the virtual on demand content.
Virtual delegates will have access to and be able to participate in the live plenary sessions, and view the content on demand.
Where possible, keynote speakers will present live at the venue and plenary sessions will be broadcast through the virtual platform and enable virtual and face-to-face delegates to ask questions directly to the keynote speakers. Plenary sessions will also be recorded and made available on demand through the virtual portal.
Abstract presenters that have been accepted for a face-to-face presentation will present live at the venue. In addition to presenting live, speakers will also provide a pre-recorded presentation to be made available on demand through the virtual portal. Concurrent session content will be released at the same time as the live version. Abstract presenters that have been accepted for a virtual only presentation will provide a pre-recorded presentation to be made available on demand in the virtual portal.
The virtual portal will be available to registered delegates for an extended time following the conference dates, to catch up on any presentations you have missed.
What happens if restrictions increase?
Potential restrictions could mean that the hybrid conference is pivoted to a virtual only conference. This would mean that all delegates will access the content through the virtual portal and the conference would not proceed with the face-to-face component. Delegates will be kept updated throughout the planning process and will be advised on how the conference will proceed depending on the restrictions.
