Information for facilitators and presenters at the 3rd Conference of the German Network of Forced Migration Researchers

This page provides links to training videos, information about live online training, and answers to frequently asked questions.

The most important information briefly:

  • The sessions of the 3rd Conference of the German Network of Forced Migration Researchers will be held with the video conference tool “Zoom”. If you are already familiar with Zoom, you can design and create your session based on it. Please note that the functions “Surveys” and “Record” are not available. One person per session (moderator or speaker) receives an individual “Host Key”. With this six-digit code, this person is given the “host role” in the zoom meeting and thus control over all functions.
  • You will not receive a username or password for Zoom, the host key is sufficient to conduct your session (see videos below).
  • From the beginning of September you can also do a trial run this way. You will receive all further necessary information in time.
  • In addition to Zoom an additional conference app will be used. We will provide more information on this later.

The information on this page will be updated from time to time. If you have any questions, please contact
