Participating to a virtual conference can be frustrating, as one sits alone before the screen with only limited possibilities to chat by text with other participants. But LES4ECE will take place in an innovative 100% virtual format.
LES4ECE will use the innovative Laval Virtual conferencing environment - the Green Center - which allows a virtual experience close to a real-world conference. After setting up an avatar, you can walk around the site, meet colleagues and friends to discuss orally in private or in groups, watch stands and posters and engage discussions around them, and of course follow presentations. And we'll even plan social events!
Your participation to LES4ECE 2021 in a 100% virtual format will require the download of the Virbela platform.
Instructions to download the Virbela plateform before the conference:
Please find below the pre-requisites to download the Virbela platform to send to your IT department in order to check that the download will not cause you any difficulties (firewall problems for example).
