Connection Details

Indico

An indico site has been developed for Warwick Week. This outlines the timetable and provide a way to
post the talks and to link to the video recording. The site can be accessed at

https://indico.cern.ch/event/897634/

Note that the indico site is hosted by CERN. To access it you will need a CERN account. If you don't
have one, don't worry - CERN has a facility to make a lightweight account which allows external users
who do not have a regular CERN account to get access to certain CERN applications that are open to
external users. You will need to make one of these accounts before accessing the indico site.

Instructions to do this can be found at

https://account.cern.ch/account/

under "Lightweight Accounts"


Blackboard Collaborate

The presentations will be given using a platform that is supported by the University of Warwick.
The platform is Blackboard Collaborate, and the link to the webinar ( a truly horrifying word, by the way)
can be found on the indico site front page.

The link is :

The session will open on Monday 13th July at 08:00. It would be helpful if people could log in 15 minutes
or so earlier than the lecture start time. I've noticed that it takes a little time for the system to allow you
access, and an early log in will allow us to start on time.

Please note that we will be recording the lectures. If you have concerns about this, please get
in touch with me.


Slack workspace

To facilitate questions and to provide you with something to use for feedback we will also use
a Slack workspace. The invitation to this workspace is

https://join.slack.com/t/ww-2020/shared_invite/zt-fhzf5kmu-36hk2hDGhEdPpvcSlyCF1g

If you can't create an account for this workspace using this link, please email me and I will send a targetted
invitiation.

The workspace has channels for each lecture series, as well as channel for general comments and suggestions.
I would like you to use this space for questions which we can't answer directly in the lecture, or which
occur to you at some other time during the week. Since this way of doing summer schools is rather new to all of us,
I also hope you can leave suggestions on how we can do things better - please use the #general channel for suggestions
and general questions. There is a facility for making anonymous suggestions in this space (simply prefix your
comments with the tag /anonymous - which will anonymise your comments) but I hope you
would not feel the pressure to use this. Any constructive suggestions are helpful.
