Information about the Webex platform
This year the BITS2021 annual meeting will take place online using Webex platform, kindly offered by the University of Turin. If you are new to Webex meetings, please read the information below.

If you are familiar with Webex meetings already, please make sure that the Webex Meetings application on your device is updated to the latest version.

Online sessions of 1 and 2 July
The sessions are scheduled to start following the program. Each day will have a separate, individual Webex link. The link to access the online meeting will be sent to all the attenders by mail within June, 29. If you are registered to BITS2021 but you did not receive the link please send an email to bits2021@bioinformatics.it

Joining the meeting
When you join the meeting, please use your name and surname, other choice as "John", "lab_pc", "my new iPad", "office laptop", "gaming computer", or other such cryptic names, will be difficult to identify you.
You will first access a "waiting room"; the organisers will check and enable your access to the actual meeting room as quickly as possible. Please be patient. During the presentations themselves, make sure that your own microphone and camera are OFF. You only need to see and hear the presenters

Asking questions
At the end of the presentations, there will be a period for questions. The Webex platform offers a chat option. Please write your question in a clear and succinct way; the session chair will monitor this chat window and will select and pass onto the speaker as many questions as time allows.

Poster Sessions
Poster Sessions will take place during the same Webex session of the day in question. Please check the Programme for exact starting times on each day. At the appropriate time, the organisers will launch separate breakout rooms, each dedicated to a single poster and labelled with the poster number and the poster title. Please check the Programme page, every break with poster session is a link that will report the distribution of the posters for that session.
