Conference platform

All participants who have paid their conference fee in full and on time will receive their access data by e-mail a few days before the event starts. If you have not received your access data by 18 March 2022, 14:00, please contact Ms. Beatrice Hensel ().

To use all features of the conference platform, you need an up-to-date browser and Zoom (Video conferencing service). Further information on the technical requirements can be found here.

Joining the conference

Step 1
In order to participate in the conference, you also need a MeetAnyway account with which you can register on the conference platform.

If you do not have a MeetAnyway account yet, please create one on in good time before the start of the conference - using the e-mail address you used for participant registration. To do this, click on "Create New Account" and follow the instructions on the screen. During registration, you will receive a 6-digit code by e-mail from MeetAnyway to activate your account.

After creating the account, please add a profile picture and your affiliation to your personal profile, if applicable.

If you already have a MeetAnyway account with a different e-mail address and would like to use it to participate in the conference, please contact Ms Beatrice Hensel (). We will then be happy to activate this account for the conference.

Step 2
Visit the homepage of the meeting platform and click on "Attend event". You will then be asked to log in or register with your MeetAnyway account (if not already done as described in step 1).

Step 3
You are now registered and can join the event via "Enter event space".

Immediately after logging in, you will be directed to the conference platform, which will be the central access point on the web during the entire conference. Here, all the platform's functionalities are available to you in a clear and intuitive way.

You have not received the activation code for your MeetAnyway account or have technical difficulties on the meeting platform? You can reach the MeetAnyway support staff

  • by e-mail: support(at),
  • via the participant helpdesk: or
  • directly on the conference platform via the (?) symbol at the right top.
