Entrance to the HBA2021 conference (not for admins)
Welcome to the HBA2021 conference.
Below you can find links to all the sessions/events of the conference week: click the title to access the Shindig login page. If you are taking the admin role in a session, do NOT use the link below, but use the link on this page. All times are in EDT (UTC-4).
If you try to access a session more than an hour before it starts, you will be shown an RSVP page. Just return within an hour before the scheduled time to actually enter the session. You will be asked to login using your name, institution and email. Please use the email address you used when registering via the HBA registration form. While Shindig works in Safari, Edge, Firefox and Chrome, it is most reliable in the latter. You can find various guides to using or troubleshooting Shindig in the menu bar on the left.
If you have any difficulty in accessing any of the sessions, please email virtual(at)nomadit.co.uk and we will do our best to assist you.
The coffee rooms are open throughout each conference day (see hours listed): you can enter those at any time to meet with others in the room. Once in, you can engage in text or video chats with up to five other people at a time. These chats are private and can only be seen/heard by those in the chat.
This does not take place in Shindig. The posters can be viewed throughout the conference here. You can filter the posters by track. Click on a poster image to see a larger version which you can then zoom/move around. Some posters have accompanying videos where the presenter discusses their work.
To talk to a poster-giver about their work, look out for the times they have said they'll be available, and click on the 'Chat to Presenter' button to enter into their private chat space (Zoom, Google meet, etc), where they should be present to meet you. We have asked presenters to be available on Tuesday from 11:30-13:00 (Authors A-L) and 14:00-15:30 (Authors M-Z). Some have stated somewhat different times, due to their availability.
