Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Exoplanets 3 will be completely converted into an online event. It will no longer take place in Heidelberg. This also means that the program is going to be drastically different from what was originally envisioned. This does not only have disadvantages. There are also several new opportunities and advantages:
The two main tools we will be using are Zoom (for the live events and video chats), and Slack (for announcements, as well as chats among the participants). To make use of this, you will be asked to sign up on the Exo3 Slack workspace.
To make it as easy as possible for you to know what is going on when, and how to find your way to these online events and online posters, your starting point will be the Exo3 Virtual Conference Center web page, which will be opened in due time well before the start of the conference. From there you will be able to go to the live talks, find the recorded talks, browse the posters, get to know people in the various online lounges, start a Slack chat with someone, etc. It will also give you access to your own contribution upload and testing page.
To make sure everthing will go as smoothly as possible, and technical glitches will be fixed rapidly, we will need a large number of volunteers to act as moderators and technical assistants to the speakers. Anyone can volunteer (preferentially from among you, the conference participants). If you have experience with tools such as Zoom, Slack, with video editing, with web design, with databases, and any other issues related to creating a successful online event, that would be a plus. This is going to be a large team effort. If you are interested to join the team of moderators, you can indicate so in your registration form (which contains now a set of new options, replacing the old ones that are now outdated).
We will provide further updates as we go. We intend to make Exo3 Online a memorable event!
