Practical guide for Paper Presenters

You can find the detailed conference program after logging in on the conference portal – and the room numbers and Webex link information for sessions will be appearing for each session shortly. In addition to finding “My sessions” (which automatically lists all sessions in which you have an active role as chair/discussant/paper giver and where you can add new sessions of interest for you), you can also search the entire program by key words and names. We hope these new features will help you plan for a fruitful conference experience!

To facilitate the organisation of sessions at this large hybrid conference, please ensure that you respond to questions from the Chair of your session in a timely manner, and let them know whether you are presenting online or in person. Please notify the Chair of the session you are presenting in if there are changes to your participation format. Should you wish to contact the Chair, the discussant or the other paper givers in your session, you can see their email addresses when clicking on their names in your session’s description in the program. If you wish, you can also use the option “Papers” (below the description of your session) to upload your paper on the conference portal.

Ensure that you log on in Webex (if you attend online) or show up in the room at OsloMet (if you attend on-site) 10 mins prior to the start of your session. Please also ensure that you stick to the timing for presentations as per the instructions from your Chair, so that sessions can start and finish within the allocated time, with a fair distribution of time between presenters.

If you are presenting online, please double-check and test that the Webex interface works on your computer, and that the sound works both ways, well in advance of your presentation. A special Drop-In Session will be organized on Monday, 27th of June 2022 between 15:00-16:30 CEST, to allow participants joining online to test the Webex functionalities prior to the conference, if they wish (you can join at any time during this time slot). In addition, a special Online Support Centre will also give assistance during the entire duration of the conference to participants joining via Webex. Detailed information regarding the Drop-In Session and the Online Support Centre: 

If presenting in person, please note that you have to bring any PPT file with you on a memory stick, and ensure it is uploaded in the computer available in the conference room before the session is scheduled to begin. Please note that you will not be able to use presenter mode with notes in PPT (or similar) – when we are using the Webex interface (as everyone will see your notes). If you are joining on-site, we also strongly encourage you to bring your own head-sets in case you may need them during the conference days.

For those joining in person, you’re most welcome to ask questions at the registration desk at OsloMet from Wednesday 29 June – Friday 1 July, about any further issues. Should there be technical issues, the conference volunteers and organizing committee will try to assist as best possible.

To ensure the good visibility of your work in the conference program, we strongly advise you to create a profile on the IMISCOE Migration Research Hub, if you do not have one yet: . Also, please do not hesitate to share the information regarding your presentation on social media, by using the hashtag #IMISCOE2022.

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable IMISCOE conference – online or in person in Oslo!
