How To - online BC20

We want to make the online Bernstein Conference an exceptional experience for you. Here we inform you about the most important facts on how the conference will be implemented.

General information

In order to get access to the online Bernstein Conference 2020 you will need to register. By registering you confirm that you agree to our Code of Conduct. A few days prior to the event we will send access information for our platforms Hopin and GIN.

This will be the main platform, where all participants will meet for all talks, workshops, poster sessions, the exhibition and networking.
You will need to create an account to login to the platform. Please use your full name while creating a profile. We further encourage you to also upload a profile picture of you to make the online conference a more personal experience for everyone. Please use the same email address which you used for the registration, preferrably an institutional email address.
The platform is operated within a web browser, thus no downloads are required. Please use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Other browsers are not or not fully compatible.
Once you login to the online Bernstein Conferene 2020 you will find these major elements:

  • Reception: here you find general information and the event schedule
  • Stage: all talks (invited and contributed) and the debate will take place on the stage
  • Sessions: the session's segment will host the satellite workshops, the poster session and social gatherings. Please note, that only currently ongoing sessions will be on display.
  • Expo: the expo area will host the virtual booths of our exhibitiors
  • Networking + several chat options

Here you can find further information about the Hopin platform and its features.

The G-Node data infrastructure service GIN will provide the repository for the poster gallery, where poster presenters will upload their posters for display. You will also need to create your individual login, in order to access the poster gallery.


Talks & Debate

All invited and contributed talks and the debate will take place on the Hopin stage. You can comment and ask questions in the chat alongside.

Satellite Workshops

Satellite workshop will take place in the Hopin session's segment, where each workshop will be allocated to one session. The workshop organizers will moderate their session and allow the speakers on screen.
Sessions will only be on display, in the time when they are scheduled.

Poster Session

While the poster gallery will be implemented on G-Node, Hopin will provide the interactive platform for the poster session during the conference.

Prior to the conference the poster presenters will upload their posters to the G-Node data infrastructure service GIN, together with a brief pre-recorded poster-tour. The posters will be on display while the conference is ongoing.

The actual poster session will take place  on the platforms session's segment. Each poster will have its own 'round table'. During the scheduled time, presenters will be online and may have the poster and additional material to share on the screen. Up to 10 people can join the 'round table' for a video chat for an in-depth discussion and an elaborated poster tour. Further particpants can simultaneously watch the discussion and engage in the poster's group chat.


Find the virtual booth area in the Hopin expo area. Our exhibitors will be looking forward to get in touch with you.
You miss the blue Bernstein sofa to hang out and chat inbetween the science? Do not worry, we created a virtual blue sofa at our Bernstein booth.

Interaction with other participants

The Hopin platform provides multiple chat modes:

  • live global event chat: everybody is messaging everybody
  • session chats: each session has its own group chat
  • direct messaging: private messages and video chats can be set up between participants

Participants will have the option to create individual sessions for group discussion and socializing.

The networking tool randomly connects participants in one-on-one video chats.
