How to ask questions
Option 1: Chat
You can join the discussion with other attendees by sending messages to “Everyone” or you can chat privately with the Session Chair by selecting their name from the drop down list. Learn more about Using Webinar Chat.
Option 2: Live Q&A session
Following the 3 minute overview there is a short Q&A session.
We request participants to use Q&A panel on the side-panel on the right of the Zoom window. If not shown, one can click on the icon to enable the Q&A panel.
You can post your questions in the Q&A window anytime during the Session.
At the end of the talk, the Session Chair will select and ask the presenter to answer some of the questions in sequence they were submitted and within the allotted Q&A period and will try to cover as many questions as possible depending on the allotted time.
The Chair will have the ability to unmute participants if this is needed to elaborate on their questions (please note that due to the limited Q&A duration, participants may want to discuss with the author(s) off-line).
