CORONA has thwarted our plans for a live kickoff in february, so instead, we will have a “digital” kick off, to take place January 4th 2021, to introduce and begin our educational activities and events that will take place throughout January and onwards. When finally the time comes, we will reintroduce live events and activities as well.
The kick off meeting will take the form of a large zoom conference hosted by 3-4 faculty members and including ca. 30 registered and invited members of www.giganode.org. This meeting will also be streamed on www.giganode.org to a broader audience.
- Faculty members will introduce the new platform, display some of the functions already established, tell you about upcoming features and functionality to be introduced over the coming weeks.
- A limited number of registered members will attend the live Zoom and be able to participate in the discussion as well as provide their comments and input within the session (similarly to that of a seminar setting, reminiscent of our former activities).
- Interested people who will be able to follow the Kick off via Live Stream and who will be able to contribute to the discussion by asking questions through a chat function of the platform.
