To ensure safety with the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our GAconf Europe event in April will again take place fully online, shcedules for European timezones with talks spread over two short days to maximise time-zone crossover. We are working with our sponsors to be able to provide the event free of charge for all of our attendees.
The talks will be broadcast on Zoom, from 10am to 5.30pm BST (11am – 6.30pm CEST), (5.30am – 12.30pm ET)
They are also simulcast to Youtube on the IGDA Game Accessibility SIG’s channel. Zoom offers the better viewing experience, with flexible captions and interpreting. The YouTube stream is primarily there as a re-windable backup for people who aren’t able to catch some of the sessions live.
Networking is via discord only (the chat functionality for Zoom and YouTube will not be enabled). The link to the Discord will be sent to registered attendees only, in your confirmation email.
See you there!
While Zoom and Discord not perfect accessibility-wise, they offer a reasonable level. As part of this we’ll be using Zoom’s functionality to provide full live captioning and BSL interpreting for all talks, and our speakers are provided with guidance on producing accessible presentations.
