How will the LASA virtual/remote presentations work?

March 17, 2020

A unique link/URL will be created for every session, which when clicked on, will display the live video for that session. These links will be available for everyone who is registered. Those registered will be able to join as few or as many sessions as they wish during the duration of the Congress.

Presenters will have the ability to share their webcam, microphone, and most content from their computer with the connected audience (attendees) and have discussions, Q&A with the virtual attendees.

Attendees of the virtual Congress will be able to submit questions for the presenters or request that they be un-muted in order to have a discussion with the presenters.
