The Virtual Conference Experience

With the unprecedented situation the society is currently going through, flexibility and adaptability are more important now than ever.

To ensure the health and safety of all delegates, speakers, staff and volunteers, the IFA has decided to re-invent the 15th Global Conference: Rights Matter and give everyone the option to experience the outcome of this conference in-person as well as virtually.

For the virtual Conference experience, the IFA will replicate many aspects of the traditional place-based conference with many valuable advantages such as:

  • Conference simultaneous translation in English and in French
  • Easily end the current session and engage in another one at the same time
  • Attendees in other time zones will be able to easily watch the sessions at a more convenient time
  • Attend different sessions; all of them will be recorded and on the platform to be viewed later
  • Get access to every abstract and slides and information about the keynote speakers
  • Engage, ask, share ideas and participate in sessions in real-time
    and many more.
