Book your place on the video conference with Susan Leigh Star

Book your place on the trans-continental video conference seminar on 29 July 2009 with Susan Leigh Star, who will be speaking on ‘Silence and Invisible Work‘. There are 2 ways to participate:

1. Join us on the live video conference for high-definition images and sound, and participate in the discussion.

2. Watch live on the web, with the opportunity to relay questions via Twitter.

1. To join the video conference…

We need the following information on your video conference equipment by Friday 17 July, so that we can set things up and run a series of technical tests. Please send your answers to the following 10 questions to your local co-ordinator (Laura Watts in the northern hemisphere or Lyn Campbell in the southern hemisphere).

[1] Your name and email address
[2] Institution
[3] Address
[4] Name and email of your technical support who will be available to help
[5] Telephone number to call on the day if there is a problem e.g. the room you are using, mobile phone etc.
[6] Time zone in terms of +/- UTC
[7] IP address of your equipment (this is the most important piece of information)
[8] Connection speed (384 kbps minimum)
[9] Confirmation that you can use H.323 connection protocol
[10] Make and model of your video conference system

2. To join the web stream…

No need to book this, but please send us a message to say you are planning to be there (name + institution) and we will introduce you on the day. The web address and login information will be sent out via the mailing list a few hours before the event starts. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter – we will then follow you so that we can hear your questions (hashtag ‘stsmixtures’).
