Why are you hosting the RUP Symposium virtually rather than in-person?
Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and for the safety of all attendees and students, we determined it was best to host a virtual symposium via Zoom rather than canceling.
Who can attend the RUP Symposium?
The symposium free and open to the general public.
Do I have to register to attend?
Yes, registration is required in order to receive your personal link via email to join the webinar. This also allows us to have an accurate headcount for an improved attendee experience at this and future events.
Do I need to download Zoom?
The web browser client will download automatically when you start or join your first Zoom meeting, and is also available for manual download here.
For more information about Zoom and system requirements, you can visit the Zoom Help Center.
Do I need an account to use Zoom?
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting or webinar. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided via email after registering to attend the Winter Institute. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting.
Will the sessions be recorded?
No. To keep the registration process as smooth and unencumbered as possible, we are not asking anyone to sign an ASU Photo/Recording Release form prior to attending
Will the papers being presented at the sessions be available before the symposium starts?
Yes, papers by the presenters will be distributed prior to the symposium start so attendees have an opportunity to read and get familiar with the topic prior to the sessions. Only those registered for the conference will receive a link to all the papers prior.
How long are sessions?
Each session will be 60 minutes long. Each presenter in each session will have 20 minutes to present and roughly 10 minutes for Q/A from the audience.
