Registered attendees will receive copies of a live program via email. The live program will contain links to Zoom meeting spaces, slack workspaces, and working documents. Registration is required to obtain these links. 

Keeping with the tradition of SIPS2020, the conference will be conducted primarily in the time zone of the host country (Italy). To make the conference more globally accessible, however, we will vary the times somewhat each day such that some days will start earlier in the morning Italy time (to better accommodate attendees in east Asia and Oceania) and some will start later in the afternoon in Italy time (to better accommodate attendees in the Americas).

All meeting attendees are expected to abide by our code of conduct and meeting rules. To get a more concrete impression of what the SIPS conference is like, check out the SIPS 2020 conference OSF page, and this great blog post by Neil Lewis, Jr.
