What is the format of the RISC-V Global Forum 2020 and when will it take place?

– San Francisco 12:00 AM – 6:00 PM
– Barcelona 9:00 AM – 3:00 AM
– Shanghai 3:00 PM – 9:00 AM
What are the benefits of attending the virtual Forum?
Receive the same benefits you would have had at the face-to-face event, but access these from the comfort of your home via a computer, tablet or phone – all you need is the internet and a web browser.
What is the cost and how do I register?
Attendees: $50 USD
What are the system requirements needed to participate in the virtual event?
We are using the MeetingPlay virtual event platform and this is a web-based, HTML5 platform. You will not need to download any application to participate, and browsers on almost all devices will work. Live technical assistance will be available within the event platform during the event to help you troubleshoot any issues.
Will the content be different in a virtual experience setting?
No! All of the sessions and content you would have had access to at a physical event will be included in the virtual event. While some of our onsite experiences aside from content, unfortunately, can’t be replicated online, we’re working on putting together alternate experiences that can, which will help provide attendees a fully immersive event experience. Stay tuned for more details!
How will the virtual sessions work?
Sessions will take place at scheduled times just as they would at a face-to-face event. Speakers will be available for a live Q&A. And of course, all sessions will be recorded and available to attendees on-demand after the event.
I attend mainly for networking. How is that possible in a virtual event?
We know how invaluable face-to-face networking is at events and we purposefully chose a virtual event platform that we felt most closely replicated the real-world capabilities for attendee networking at an event. Attendees will be able to connect with speakers, sponsors, and experts through group chats and also engage in 1:1 chats via video or text with other event attendees.
What timezone will the forum be live in?
The schedule will be posted in Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-7), but this 18-hour event allows us to ensure that attendees around the globe are able to attend during your country’s working hours.
How will the event Code of Conduct be enforced in a virtual environment?
All participants must abide by the Linux Foundation Code of Conduct at virtual events just as they would at physical ones. We will be monitoring language and images throughout the platform to ensure there are no violations of the CoC, and quickly handle any that we might find. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns relating to harassment, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately through the information desk in the event platform.
