Possibility of “virtual participation” from local conference centres

The Berlin Conference organizing team is pleased to announce the partner universities for the “virtual paper panels”, which will enable authors from the respective regions to join the local conference centres for paper presentation instead of travelling to Berlin.

The partners/co-sponsors for this new and decentralized conference format are:

  • University of Cape Town, South Africa
  • United Nations University Tokyo, Japan
  • Colorado State University, USA

Besides facilitating the participation for researchers, who don’t have the time or resources to attend the actual conference, this new conference format will also help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

By using modern video conferencing technology we aim at enabling presenters not only to present their papers to, but also interact with the audience abroad in a discussion.

The keynote speeches will – depending on the time differences – be broadcasted to the local conference centres as well, which are also open for a small number of an audience of interested people.

If you would like to join one of the three local conference sites instead of travelling to Berlin please register at www.berlinconference.org/2010/registration choosing the status “virtual participation”. You won´t be asked to pay any participant fees.

We are very excited to try out this new conference format!

Best regards,

Klaus Jacob, Steffen Bauer and Lisa Münch
