Scheduling: Use the agu.confex scheduler as your home for planning. There is NO mobile meeting app this year! Additional attendee information tutorials and other resources are here: https://agu.org/agu20.
Posters: Poster summary sessions will be held via Zoom. For individual sessions—you can choose a text chat or live chat. If you choose “live”, you will need to use your own Zoom account. Presenters can designate their time to be available for text/live chat within iPosterSessions, which will show up in the online program.
Closed Captioning for Talks: AGU tested several options and chose Google’s AI product. All uploaded videos will be run through this service. Captioning can be turned on/off by the viewer.
