Please ensure your connection speed is 2 Mbps upload, 4 Mbps download or better.

You can test your Internet connection speed at SpeedTest.net.

Presenting online can be a really rewarding experience with good preparation. For some tips and tricks on preparing to present online, CLICK HERE

If you do not already have Google Chrome please download this prior to your presentation. See details below.

We’ll send you a web-link prior to the commencement of the event which gives you access to our online conference system called OnAIR, which is where you’ll watch and participate in the convention.

OnAIR:

  • Works most effectively when using the Google Chrome internet browser.
  • Provides full online support before and during the event for attendees, speakers, session chairs and exhibitors.

It is recommended for optimal use of the platform to access the OnAIR portal on a PC.

Click the below image to install Chrome.

Our policy stipulates that at least one (1) presenter for each accepted abstract must be registered as a delegate for the convention.

If presenters remain unregistered, the presentation may be removed from the program.

If multiple co-authors are planning to attend the convention, each co-author must register individually.

If you have any technical questions prior to your session, please contact mail@conferencedesign.com.au.

During the Convention

For those submitting a pre-recorded session, video duration must be no longer than the time specified in the submission process. You will be asked to submit an edited video to suit the prescribed time if what you have supplied is too long.

You will need to use your own device for your presentation. You should use a laptop or desktop computer, rather than a mobile device or tablet.

If you have access to two screens this is preferable (but not essential) as it will enable you to view multiple functions easily.

Reset/review your internet browser permissions for your camera and microphone. For example, in Chrome, you can click on the small lock icon to the right of the URL to check on these settings. Make sure you know where to find these settings before the first day of the convention.

When you share your screen during your presentation, attendees will see exactly what you see. This means you will not be able to use the presenter view setting in PowerPoint unless you have multiple monitors and can manage the screen sharing settings easily. For ease, we recommend you have your notes printed or a separate device.

Our Live Event Support Team is online and available for you at any time during the live event. If you have any questions or need technical assistance, click on the red Live Support icon in the top right of the screen.

Still have some questions?

Please email us at mail@conferencedesign.com.au and we’ll be happy to assist.
