If you have more general questions, check out our general FAQs.
If I am involved in a side event (either as an organizer or as a speaker) do I have to pay the registration fee? Yes, we are only waiving fees for speakers / organizers of the main conference. Your registration fee includes catering for all five days and access to the main conference (Wednesday, May 16 – Friday, May 18).
What role does the UR team have in organizing the content of the side event? The UR team has no role in planning, organizing or managing the side event. The UR team only will support the side event from a logistical perspective.
What equipment can I expect to be provided for my session? We will provide wifi and a projector/screen or LCD TVs (depending on the room). You must provide your own laptop and any other equipment you need.
How can I get my abstract and other information about my side event on the UR2018 agenda? There is a deadline for Feb. 16 for content to be uploaded promptly. For any information we receive after this time, we will do our best to attend to it ASAP, but may be a bit delayed.
Is there funding for participants? No, unfortunately we do not have any funding for participants.
Do side event organizers have to do an Ignite presentation? No, the Ignite presentations on Wednesday afternoon are reserved for the technical session leads. However, we have found that Ignites are a fun, dynamic and engaging way of communicating content to an audience, and is an encouraged format for events. Download the UR2018 Ignite guide.
What are some interactive tools that can be used to poll the audience? We have experience working with Mentimeter or PollEverywhere
