Remote participants will be able to follow the meeting taking place in Vilnius by watching videocasts or listening to audiocasts from the meeting rooms and reading real-time closed captioning.

Remote participants will be able to interact with the meeting by sending text questions, using the remote participation platform (Webex). These questions will be forwarded to the panel moderator when he/she opens the floor for questions from the audience.

Hubs are also encouraged to send short pre-recorded video questions or statement (2-3 min) outlining key issues on the local discussion agenda. Hubs will be also allowed to join with real-time video message.
The links to access each meeting room will be provided before the IGF. Remote participants should take a look at the IGF schedule available here to see the room and the time of the session they would like to follow.
