Venue and basic organization

All activities for the conference will take place on Blackboard Collaborate (BBC). We have split the conference into several virtual “rooms”, which you can access with the links provided below. Some of these rooms are further subdivided into smaller subrooms; everything is quite intuitive, but feel free to log in early on to get a feeling for how everything works. When logging in, please use your full name, so it is easier for other participants to identify you! If you want to have more detailed instructions, we provide some in the file “BBC Guide”.
