Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it.
Now I understand 
why the old poets of China went so far
and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
"The Old Poets of China" by Mary Oliver

Q&A Format

  1. The audience can post—anonymously if they wish—their questions on the Q&A window of the Zoom webinar. They must indicate the speaker to whom they are addressing the question: "Dr. Jones, why do....." This will help everyone keep track.
  2. During the Q&A, the moderator and/or the speakers will choose, read aloud, and answer on air any open question (s). However, the panelists/presenters are also free to type in their answers as soon as their presentations are completed.
  3. Just before the first presentation of a panel ends, all remaining open questions will be dismissed. However, panelists-presenters have the option to reopen and respond to these questions during break time or until just before the first presentation of the next panel ends (see Item # 2). This, we hope, can help ensure that only questions for the current panel's Q&A are visible and thus easier to see/read through.
  4.  Please minimize (extensive) discussions with the audience/panelists via the Zoom Chat window. (Only) if the panelists and/or wish to discuss things further and answer more questions, they can join the Wonder room. If you are taking part in post-panel discussions, the audience are instructed to send their questions via chat, and you can just read out answer the questions. Audio may be possible if there are few participants in the circle. See "Wonder" tab for link and guidelines.

  5. Kindly check back before, and even during the conference to see updates. Major updates will be announced during the conference.
