We strongly recommend to download the Zoom desktop client and to install it on your computer. It is also possible to join the Zoom webinar from your Internet browser using the web client. The Zoom web client allows joining a Zoom meeting or webinar without downloading any plugins or software. However, the web client has limited features and should only be used if you can't access the other options.
We strongly recommend to download and install the Zoom desktop client and to familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance before the start of the congress.
Please find detailed instructions on how to download and install the Zoom desktop client and how to familiarize yourself with Zoom here. If you will participate as an audience (i.ie. you do not give any talk, you are not a chair/panelist/symposium organiser) only step 1 of the instrutions applies to you.
