Will I have a chance to answer questions?

For the Live sessions, there will be a live Q&A component where delegates can ask questions. We will have a session chair moderating these questions.

For on-demand sessions, if delegates have questions, they will be able to connect with the presenters via the Meeting Hub. Users can communicate via direct message, live chat and video call. In the Meeting Hub, delegates can search for presenters, request meetings, and once accepted, engage in video conversations. 

Presentation video files for on-demand sessions

Pre-recorded (on-demand) presentations are to be uploaded to the presenter portal by 9 October 2020 to confirm inclusion in the program. The link for the presenter portal will be emailed to each ‘on demand’ presenter the week starting 28 September 2020. Please keep an eye on your junk folder for this email.  We recommend presenters to consider using Zoom as a recording device. This is a ‘how to guide’

Presenters with a live presentation will be contacted separately to confirm their requirements.

Presenter Tips and Tricks

Presenting online can be a really rewarding experience with good preparation. Here are some presenter tips and tricks:

  • Simplify your slidesEach web conference platform has its own distinctive way of displaying slides. Avoid technical hassles by designing simple, easy-to-read slides.
  • Do tech preparationGet familiar with the platform you’re using in advance.
  • Set the scene – Eliminate any visual clutter behind you.
  • Light up your face – If the lighting in your room isn’t optimal, set up a desk lamp behind your laptop, centred right over the camera to light up your face.  Avoid sitting with a bright window behind you as it will make you appear dark and foreboding. Switch positions so that you sit with the bright window in front of you.
  • Make sure they can hear you and only you – Ideally, you should present in a quiet room.
  • Look them in the eye. – Raise your laptop so that your camera is at eye level.

Will I have to download specific software?

You will not need to download specific software to participate in IPDLN 2020. 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 conference.


  • Works most effectively when using the Google Chrome internet browser.
  • Integrates with Zoom which is fully embedded in a personal and secured environment.
  • Provides full online support before and during the event for attendees, speakers, session chairs and exhibitors.

I have security concerns

We generally use Zoom for the connectivity component of online conferences.  Zoom makes privacy and security a top priority for all its users. Please click the link here to read more about Zoom privacy and security. 

Who do I contact for technical help?

If you have any technical questions prior to your session, please contact Touchpoint.  A number will be provided prior to the conference.

During the conference

What is the Meeting Hub?

The Meeting Hub is a feature of the online system which allows you to engage in real-time discussions with other attendees. When using Meeting Hub delegates can search for attendees, request meetings, and when accepted engage in a video conversation.

What happens if my session runs overtime?

Your presentation must end within your allotted time. If you run overtime, your presentation will automatically end, and your audio will be muted.

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.

What device should I do my live presentation on?

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.

What if I have camera or audio problems?

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 conference.

If you need technical assistance, click on the red Live Support icon in the top right of the screen in the presenter portal.

Will I be able to see my notes when I am presenting?

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.

Who do I contact for live support during the online event?

Our Live Event Support Team is online and available for you at anytime 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 in the presenter portal.

Post Conference

Will my presentation be available to delegates following the conclusion of the conference?

All live video presentations are recorded.  All live and pre-recorded presentations will be available to delegates after the event for 6 months via the portal.  Any additional files authors choose to share will also be available to view during and after their presentation.

Access to the virtual platform is restricted to conference participants only and cannot be found by search engines.

Can I get a record of all the questions that were asked of me?

Yes.  Following the conference, we will send you a list of the questions that were posted in the Q&A function during your presentation.

Will people be able to record for download my presentation?

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual conference Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of conference material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings; therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
