Virtual Platform Access & Requirements

Technical Requirements: For a more enjoyable and effortless virtual experience, we recommend using a larger device such as a laptop or desktop computer. Virtual sessions and ATE Connects often feature quick moving discussions that are much easier to follow and contribute to on a bigger screen. Please note that accessing the platform by phone or tablet will not work properly to engage in all of the platform’s functionality. For the full virtual experience, we again recommend watching on a computer.

As for Internet browsers, we recommend using Chrome or Edge as your browser to view the event and discourage Safari and Internet Explorer as they are not compatible with the site.

To access the live sessions in this event, you must also have the latest version of Zoom installed on your computer. For instructions on how to download Zoom, click here. For information on updating Zoom, click here.

Chat & Direct Messaging: To engage in networking throughout the conference, attendees are encouraged to participate in chat found in the platform lobby pages as well as in individual sessions. In addition to chat, attendees have the capability to direct message with one another and to start group chats on each virtual platform page and in the ATE Connects STEM areas of focus pages.

ATE Connects
The ATE Connects pages are open on the platform—and the conference features two dedicated times on the agenda where leaders and key contacts of ATE Connects submissions will be available to engage directly with attendees through chat and direct messaging. We strongly encourage you to connect in ATE Connects as this a key component of the event and offers ATE projects and centers the opportunity to network and connect with conference participants, explore the ATE community, and engage in the sharing of information, resources, and materials related to their programs.
