Preregistration. If you plan to be at the meetings either in person or online via webcast and remote participation, please preregister. Doing so will help meeting organizers gauge likely attendance, and will provide you with a printed nametag.
Openness and Archival. The meetings listed above will be open to all interested parties. The comments and questions of remote participants will be read to the assembled group and archived online. The archive will also include a video recording of all plenary sessions, an archive of presentations delivered, and comprehensive scribe's notes of certain plenary sessions.

meeting schedule, there are also a number of additional meetings
taking place in Montevideo. However, these additional sessions will

Remote Participation Over The Internet
Viewing and Hearing the Meeetings. We will offer a live real-time audio and video feed from the public meetings listed above. In addition, we will post the meeting scribe's notes in real time.
Participating in the Meetings. Online participants will be able to submit text comments in real-time. Questions and comments submitted over the Internet will be sent to technical staff present in the meeting room. Those real-time messages relevant to the topic currently being discussed will be processed by the moderator who will select certain messages for presentation to the assembled group for a response similar to that provided to a concern raised at a microphone in a Q&A session. All messages will be archived on this site.
