Important information about accessing the video stream for FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2021. Two options to connect are available.

1. Zoom

This is the recommended option as you will be able to join the stream as an attendee and ask questions of the presenters. If you haven’t already, you can register here.
Each hub was emailed a separate link last week which will allow you to join the stream as a panelist. Panelists can turn their webcam on while attendees cannot. Your choice.
