Based on the availability of slots, the registration portal will tentatively be open till May 17, 2022. However, if all the participant slots are fulfilled, the registration portal may be closed prior to the mentioned date. Hence, it is requested to register as early as possible.

No, the conference is free of charge.

Once you complete the registration, we will send you an email detailing the next steps. The login instructions will be mailed to each registered participant ahead of the conference.

We would have a collection of short panels/plenary sessions, sector or tool-focused workshops, case/problem-solving sessions. Apart from these, we would also have slots for informal energizers which would be more focused on driving interaction between participants.

Details depend on the session design. The live commenting section will be individually open for the sessions for live interaction.

We will have informal energizer sessions where participants will have the option to engage in discussions and share their opinions with other participants. Besides this, the conference will have a permanent networking hub where participants will have the option to directly converse with other participants via text messages. Additionally, to make the conference interactive and engaging, each session will have a live comment section.
