Due to strict border control in Australia, we have unfortunately decided to run the conference virtually. PRDC 2021 will run virtually using Gather (please click the link to see more details). For all registered delegates, a separate email containing the attendance detail will be sent one week before the conference start date.
We do not have a strict rule about sharing your registration to participate in PRDC 2021 (i.e., you can pass on your registration to your colleagues without needing an approval from us). However, a specific email will be needed to participate in Gather (i.e., no multiple logins using the same email address are allowed).
There are two types of registrations; Author* and Online. Fees are as follows:
*At least one author from the accepted paper must register. Author registration includes Online registration.
Details on how to access PRDC 2021 via Gather will be sent to you via your email one week before the conference start date.
Once you access PRDC 2021 space on Gather, you would be able to watch all presentation videos in the presentation room.
The QnA sessions will follow the full schedule (see it here), where the authors are asked to be present in the discussion room for the last 30 minutes of their scheduled presentation (e.g., for Session 1 scheduled from 10:30-12:00, authors will be available in the discussion room from 11:30-12:00).
If you would like to continue the discussion (or just have a chat with other delegates), there are other spaces that you are welcome to use, such as breakout rooms and the lobby (both public and private areas).
Below are some images of the PRDC 2021 Gather space.
Above is the first time landing page. After this, you would reappear the last place you logged out.
