With the spread of recent COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, International Conference Alerts (ICA) stands with its conference organizers, attendees, & the broader event community during a time when our industry is being deeply affected. Whether you have a conference coming up or you’re trying to decide whether to schedule one later this year, International Conference Alerts suggests prioritizing your user health & safety first.
Hence, International Conference Alerts recommends following the preventative measures recommended by the WHO and your local authorities and public health agencies. And follow the following guidelines to effectively receive conference alerts effectively at the comfort of your home amidst the global lockdown:
- To keep receiving notifications about online/virtual conferences in your respective industry, add keywords such as “online”, “virtual”, “webinar” to your profile in International Conference Alerts.
Thus, you’ll receive any & all online/virtual events happening in your industry and you can safely participate from the comfort of your home.
To add those keywords to your profile, log in to your subscriber account.
- Keep browsing International Conference Alertsand your preferred academic stream/topic to learn more about upcoming online/virtual events.
- If you have concerns about whether an event will be held/cancelled, we suggest connecting with the organizer of that event directly.
- Similarly, if an event is postponed by the organizer, we suggest connecting with the organizer of that event directly to address your questions about rescheduled dates, possible refunds, or event details.
- International Conference Alert is an online, self-service platform. This means that organizers handle all aspects of their events. If you have event-specific questions or requests, contact the event organizer directly.
- If you haven’t heard back from your organizer even after multiple calls or email, you can contact us. While we likely won’t be able to answer event-specific questions like “What is the event itinerary?” and “What should I bring to the conference?”, we’ll do our best to connect you with your event organizer.
- Familiarize yourself with online video conference & collaboration platforms such as Google Hangouts, Zoom etc.
- If you must attend a physical event, what the event organizer is doing to keep attendees safe and healthy by reviewing their event listing and other online channels or contacting them directly.
