PAPER presenter guide

This is a quick guide about presenting your paper on the Cumulus Roma virtual conference platform. We recommend a modern web browser such as Chrome.

One hour before the conference, you can enter and start looking around the platform. On the reception page you can find the schedule with session codes that match the program published on the website.

5 minutes before your session, its schedule item becomes available from the Notifications, Reception or Sessions menu.
Please find your TRACK NAME and CODE among the currently active sessions, and enter the virtual room.
The session chair and a conference staff will wait you and help with technical issues, if necessary.

When your presentation is about to start, the session moderator will call your name and then you can join the video by clicking on the red button. Please confirm your video and audio device. If there are multiple registered authors of your contribution, they can join as well.

As usual with video conferencing tools, you will be able to share your screen, a window or a browser tab. If you want to show a pre-recorded video, we recommend sharing a browser tab.

The session audience may contact you in the session CHAT or in the Q&A tab. The session moderator will help you handling questions and the audience may enter in the video call for a deeper discussion.

Please remember that your session will be recorded and available under the EXPO menu of the platform. Conference delegates may get in touch with you also through personal chat or one-to-one video call invitations.

If you want to test out the audio, video and screen sharing options, you will find a session called PRESENTER TEST ROOM always available with conference staff to help you.
