Using Zoom

In order to join the Don't Panic! Conference you must register in advance. 

You will receive an email from with joining instructions 2 days before the conference. This email will be sent again one hour before the meeting starts. If you have not received an email with joining instructions please check your junk folder and then email 

All attendees will be muted with video off but can participate using the Q&A function.  


Joining using your desktop, laptop or tablet:
  • Open your registration confirmation email from and select 'click here to join'
  • Zoom will open a web page. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen. If this is the first Zoom session you have joined, your browser will ask you to install some software. Allow the software to be installed and once this happens, the webinar should start.
  • If you prefer not to download Zoom, the webpage will give you the option to 'join from your browser'.
  • If you are early you will be asked to wait until the host is ready to start. 
Using the Q&A function:

The Q&A window allows you to ask questions. You can send questions during the presentation, but all questions will be answered after the presentation has been delivered. 

To ask a question:

  • Type your question into the Q&A box. Click Send.
    Note: Check Send Anonymously if you do not want your name attached to your question in the Q&A.
  • If the Chair intends on asking your question you will receive a notification in the Q&A window. We aim to answer as many questions as time allows. 

As an attendee you can also like or comment on other attendee’s questions. This helps the Chair identify popular questions, especially as there will be many attendees. To like a question click the thumbs up icon next to the question. 

Unfortunately the Q&A function is not available when dialing in.
