Frequently Asked Questions
When you register for the conference, there will be a registration question labeled, "Please tell us if there is anything we can do to ensure your participation is barrier-free. " Please write-in anything that will help make the conference accessible to you. The accessibility chairs will follow up to discuss your needs in more detail. You can contact them directly at any time by emailing email@example.com.
AutoUI 2021 will be a virtual conference and we will be using the following online meeting venues:
Main venue for virtual conferencing will be vFairs. You can find accessibility information page of vFairs here: https://www.vfairs.com/vfairs-redefining-accessibility-virtual-events/.
Paper and Poster Sessions, Video Demos, Workshops and Doctoral Colloquium will be held in Zoom. When using Zoom, we encourage you to turn on video to help lip-reading (a virtual background can be used for privacy). Zoom supports a range of keyboard shortcuts, supports screen reader alerts, and automatic live captioning. If you request sign language interpretation, interpreters can join Zoom sessions that you will be in. Please see the following page for more information about Zoom’s accessibility support: https://zoom.us/accessibility If you request CART service, this will be provided in a separate stream (which can reduce delays).
We will use Wonder for Socialising/networking and Meet the experts sessions.
The video presentations will be accompanied by the author-provided captions. For synchronous sessions (e.g., presentation Q&A), automatically generated closed captions will be provided by default on Zoom.
Yes, if you would like early access and an introductory tour of any of the conference technologies, please reach out to the accessibility chairs on firstname.lastname@example.org.
All presenters were requested to pre-record their talks and to provide subtitles. If you are a presenter and require assistance with your recording (e.g. someone to voice the talk for you), please reach out to the accessibility chairs on email@example.com.
The conference agenda will be made available to registered participants over vFairs. The agenda will contain direct links to each session or event. Once you sign in to (link to be posted soon), you can find the program in the following page: (link to be posted soon)

Yes, all prerecorded contents are available to registered participants on the vFairs platform.
If you would benefit from assistance in giving your presentation or handling questions, please reach out to the accessibility chairs to make arrangements (email@example.com).
Presenters and speakers are requested to be visible and use video when presenting to help lip-reading and non-native speakers. If this may not be possible for all speakers, we provide available captions as a fall-back for all pre-recorded presentations. If you could only rely on captions please indicate this in your conference registration or reach out directly to the accessibility chairs via firstname.lastname@example.org.
All participants are encouraged to use video and be visible when speaking to help with lip-reading and non-native speakers. Audience members will have the ability to turn captions on and off.
Conference sessions will have a professional moderator. Auto captioning in Zoom is applied to provide real time captions. If you have any needs for a human captioner and sign language interpreter, please contact accessibility co-chairs on email@example.com in advance.
We anticipate that the live presentation sessions will be recorded and available later on a video streaming platform.
We will provide primary support before and during the conference. You may also need to contact the accessibility co-chairs on firstname.lastname@example.org in advance for private needs.
