@Pierre-Marie Pédrot do we have an official videoconferencing solution for CUDW? Will the renater solution used for Coq Calls be handle to handle everyone (estimated 20+) in a plenary, or is something like Zoom needed?
We're going to use a BigBlueButton instance hosted by the Paris-Diderot university.
It is assumed that it will be solid enough to host the CUDW.
do we need to preinstall some client on Linux?
A priori no, I've already used this software on Debian on Chromium and Firefox and it ran fine.
You can have a try there: https://bbb-front.math.univ-paris-diderot.fr/recherche/the-sev-dee-jmp
seems to work fine
Just to be nasty, can we have more than one instance? (for working groups)
So the idea was rather that we would use the "breakout room" feature of BBB for working groups. There can be up to 8 breakout rooms. You have to give them a time limit, although it can be as high as you want. I've just created 8 (the max) breakout rooms with a 9 days time limit.
This means BTW that WG sessions can continue even outside the allotted time slots for the CUDW.
I guess we will need a short briefing about BBB on the first day. I've no clue what these rooms let you do
The only annoyance is that when you click on the link now, you are asked to choose a room to join.
OK actually I was wrong. If there is nobody in the room for a few minutes it looks like the session ends.
So breakout rooms will have to be recreated every morning, and sessions in breakout rooms will be able to continue only as long as there still are participants.
so @Pierre-Marie Pédrot @Théo Zimmermann we should all just jump into the BigBlueButton instance 10am CET this Monday? Or we just start by self-organizing here?
Both are not mutually exclusive.
do you recommend the wiki for scheduling WGs and so on?
I think we'll start the CUDW with a short presentation of the participants and a round table
That should be the moment where the official WGs are formed, and people join them
To go faster you can indeed preregister yourself on the wiki if you definitely know what you're going to do
