Remote Participation

The Communication Committee of GigaNet will enable remote participation in its events, including the Annual Sumposium and the Annual GigaNet Business meeting.  For those unable to travel to Sharm-El-Sheik, we will utilize webconferencing technologies (Elluminate Live!) to allow remote participants to see the slides, video, and hear audio of the symposium presenters, and if time allows to ask requestions.  During the Business Meeting, remote participants will be able to hear, see, and participate in the discussion going on in Sharm.
