Hopin (online platform)

This page contains information on the online conference platform we are using, called Hopin.

All conference registrants should be able to register for Hopin in advance of the conference. You should have received an invite from “UBC Engineering”. If you have not received an invite to register, please check in your spam folder and reach out to Christoph Sielmann (christoph.sielmann@ubc.ca). Registration helps us assign speakers and moderators to sessions. 

Session Information/Reminders

We’ve compiled some conference-specific information about how the sessions will work and reminders for speakers/moderators/audience members. Please take a look!

If you are presenting virtually you should have been invited to a test/training conference running May 9 to 11, which is the on the Hopin platform. Within the test conference, there is an “Open Practice Session” you can use to test sharing your screen and presenting.
