How to Join a Webex Meeting 

  1. By default, participants will be muted for their microphone in the first place to avoid interference with the program. In the Parallel Sessions, all participants will be free to turn on their microphone when all paper presenters finish their presentations. Should they wish to ask their questions, they must either turn on their microphone to speak directly or simply write down their questions in the chat box and wait to be announced. There is no Q&A during Keynote Speeches and Plenary Session Speeches.
  2. Parallel Sessions will take place throughout the whole conference. There shall be only one conference link and to be divided into two conference rooms (A and B) to cover the topics under the parallel sessions A and B respectively. Participants could choose to enter sessions A or B at will. (# Please click “Participants” on the bottom to your right screen, then “Breakout sessions” will appear under “Participants” for you to join in.) Whenever there is no Parallel Sessions, it will be only one conference room used for all the lectures (keynote and plenary sessions), roundtable and for the opening and closing remark. The following will be the time allotment for the parallel sessions:
    • 2-minutes opening activities including introduction of the speakers
    • 45 to 60-minutes presentation (15-minutes for each presentation)
    • 25 to 30-minutes QA
    • A bell will be rung 2 minutes before a speaker’s time is up, and again when the speaker’s time ends.
    • A bell will be rung 2 minutes before the Q&A time ends, and again when Q&A time ends.
  1. Please confirm your session’s time on the schedule in the Conference Program link below. We recommend you enter Webex at least 15 minutes before your session begins to ensure you can connect smoothly.
  2. Presentation materials of all speakers will be made available on October 28 at

The cc subtitle can be chose to translate into the language you need from English.
  4. For each session moderator, here is an example of the basic flow of moderation:

    • [Second presentation]

    • Announce Q&A and inform attendees to turn on their microphone if they wish to ask a question or write down their questions in the chat box.
    • Ask the questioner to please say their name and affiliation. If multiple people are going to speak, please try to limit each question’s time to allow more people to speak.
    • If the questions are posted in the chat box, please repeat them one by one for the paper presenters to respond.
