How to run the event?

You are free to choose the platform for your virtual event (ZOOM, MS-Teams, Webex, GatherTown etc.). However, you need to use Eventbrite to register and advertise your event.

This allows us to centrally publish and promote all satellite events by using your Eventbrite link on our webpage. After the event, we will ask you to hand in a 1-2-page summary document, i.e. focus on results, outcomes and future actions.

How to register?

Please register your satellite event supporting the topic of digital twins of the ocean here.

We will briefly review your events to ensure that your topic is related to Digital Twins of the Ocean and open for others to participate. After a successful review you will receive a confirmation. There is no final deadline to register an event.
