It is going to be a half a day Online Event lined up by series for presentations followed by Q & A sessions from the researchers in Software Engineering across India. This is an event for collaboration among research groups towards generating productive research for the upcoming year.

Workshop Access via MS Teams:
  • The workshop will use Microsoft (MS) Teams as the platform for broadcasting the presentations as well as for enabling interaction among participants and speakers.
  • All participants and Speakers are expected to download and use Microsoft Teams via the Desktop App (NO Login-password is required) or via the Browser. Please install it ahead of time rather than the day of the event. MS Teams will work on all major operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux). Please avoid using mobile phones (to the extent possible) for listening to the talks and participating in the discussions.
  • We have created a Microsoft Teams Group called "SERI 2020" and added all the participants and speakers to this group.
  • All Participants and Speakers will be receiving 3 separate meeting invites to their mail ids in the next 24 hours. One for each day: 9th July, 10th July and 11th July. YOU MUST use these links to join the discussions. Please ensure you check your SPAM folder (in case you don’t receive a meeting invite within the next 24 hrs). If you still can’t find it, please write to the mail ids given below.
  • The presentations will be played by the organizers on MS Teams during each session as per the schedule. Participants may watch the presentations on Teams and also post their comments and questions live in the Chat window of Teams during each presentation.

  • We request all Participants and Speakers to SUBSCRIBE to the SERI YouTube Channel to obtain live updates to Presentation Premieres.
  • The Presentations are automatically scheduled to become viewable at the given slot or 5-10 minutes before the start of the scheduled presentation slots. This is done to simulate the live nature of the event (in part). Hence viewing presentations ahead of time will not be possible.
  • All YouTube presentation links are also made available under SERI's Schedule Page - https://isoft.acm.org/seri2020/sch.html
  • In case bandwidth issues make it difficult to watch the scheduled presentations on MS Teams, participants may watch the presentations on YouTube at the same time that it is playing on Teams and still post their comments and questions on the Teams Chat window. Please DO NOT use YouTube chat for posting questions or comments. The Q & A session will happen on MS Teams only.
Q & A sessions via MS Teams
  • The MS Teams meeting and chat forum will be active from 8:30 am till 2:00 (on 9th July) and 9:00 am till 2:00 pm (on 10th and 11th July).
  • Participants may post questions/comments post on MS Teams chat forums while the presentation is being broadcast. Alternately, participants may wait till the start of the Q & A session to post their questions or use the “raise hand” feature to ask the question.
  • Session chairs will moderate the Q & A session (towards the end of each session) based on the discussions and questions posed by the participants.
  • Participants are requested to “mute” themselves unless they are asking a question during the discussion time.
  • Speakers are expected to be a part of the entire session in which their talk is scheduled. Speakers may answer the questions via the chat forum itself (if possible) or choose to answer the question during the Q & A session.
  • Kindly note that chat forum will be moderated and hence we request you to avoid unnecessary chatter.
