We would also like to inform you that the online platform used for the MIC Conference 2020 will be ZOOM. Details regarding ZOOM accessibility and usability are provided on the MIC Conference Website, where you can find:

– the MIC Conference 2020 Online Sessions page, containing the hyperlinks to all Zoom-based sessions, divided by day and by tempus, at: https://www.mic-conference.org/mic-conference-2020-online-sessions/

Speakers and attendees to the MIC Conference belong to four different continents, spanning 16 hours of different time-zones! In order to facilitate the participation of all, we organized the program around three blocks per day, with large break times in between, each block identified as “Tempus”, which is latin for “period of time”. Each Tempus is dedicated to a great Italian creative genius:

Raffaello Tempus – from 08:15 to 11:30 CEST
Leonardo Tempus – from 13:00 to 16:00 CEST
Marconi Tempus – from 17:30 to 20:45 CEST

In this way there are at least two “Tempi” that can be conveniently followed live from any location in the world. Recordings will be made available offline, subject to speakers’ approval.

The access is guaranteed through a personal password that will unlock all conference contents, which will be provided to all registered participants. You thus have still one week to register to the MIC Conference 2020, https://www.mic-conference.org/registration/
