Anyone who is unable to attend this weekends lecture meeting at Hughes-Parry Hall, University of London, will be able to watch the lectures live via the FIBIS livestream channel. The FIBIS livestream channel page also has a chat facility where you can login and ask questions via Livestream, Facebook and Twitter.
You do not need any special equipment or software to watch the broadcast. When you first arrive at the channel you will be presented with a short video advertisement, as we have a free channel, but once this finishes you will be able to watch the AGM and presentations as they happen.
If you wish to use the chat facility to ask questions then you will need to have a free Livestream, Facebook or Twitter account to login to the chat room which will be manned by someone who will read your questions to the person giving the presentation at the end of each lecture.
