The Organizing Committee decided to conduct the conference in a virtual form.
Arguments in favor of such a way of conducting conferences are: (1) the risk of a pandemic and travel restrictions, (2) the probability of limiting funding for participation in international conferences, (3) accumulation of scientific conferences (including others, the CIGR Congress in Quebec, Canada ) at the same time after transferring them from 2020.
We intend to organize this meeting using the Microsoft Teams communication platform.
Members wishing to join the videoconference will need to install the Microsoft Teams on their computer.
To use the Microsoft Teams program, the user's computer must be equipped with a webcam and speakers or headphones.
Each of the registered participants will receive their own login and password to log into MS teams by e-mail. After logging in, a room named "CIOSTA CONFERENCE" will be visible in the main program window. In this room on the day of the conference, the meeting will begin at 9:00 am. Any logged in participant can join the meeting.
