Online Workshop Participation Information

For online participation for the CliC Sea Ice Modeling and Observing Workshop, we will be using the GoToMeeting Platform (www.gotomeeting.com). If you have not used this system before, we suggest logging on ~15 minutes before the start of the first day - a small plugin will need to be downloaded from the web and installed on your computer the first time you use it (after that you should not need to reinstall the plug in). You have the ability to test your audio to make sure we can hear you, etc. There is a chat box that you can use to ask questions, chat to other online participants, etc. You will be able to hear the presenter and see the slides - and we are hoping to have video of the presenter as well (that part will depend on the bandwidth of participants, etc).

If you would like to ask a question or provide a comment during the meeting, please us the chat box to alert the online moderator that you would like to speak so we can get that attention of the presenter. We will then give you the floor to ask your question to the room. Please be sure to mute your line (by clicking the microphone icon) when you are not speaking to reduce background noise.

If you have participated in an online meeting before, you know that there can sometimes be technical glitches and challenges to overcome. We will do our best to make sure everything goes smoothly, but if at anytime during the meeting you have suggestions on how we can improve sound quality, etc, please send Jenny Baeseman a text: +47 4821 8095.

We will also keep the online meeting going during the breakout sessions, so we hope you will be interested in participating in that as well. You can log in and out as many times during the meeting as you would like, so if you need to leave and want to join back in later, that is no problem.

To join the meeting, simply click on the link corresponding to the day and follow the instructions.
