Digital Conferences and Events

Restrictions linked to the current coronavirus pandemic have increased the need to be able to conduct various types of digital meetings. In recent months, the solutions available to manage this have been developed further, so that planned and future activities within KTH can be conducted in a satisfactory manner. This page summarises the alternatives currently available to conduct a digital meeting.

Zoom: Procured meeting alternative from KTH’s IT Department

There are a number of procured alternatives options that can be used via the Zoom tool for meetings. KTH’s IT Department can provide recommendations and ensure that can get your digital meeting properly started, however the possibility of someone from the IT Department siting in the meeting and conducting it technically during an entire conference or event is not feasible.

It is important that the individual(s) responsible for the meeting learns how to work with Zoom. Therefore if needed, prior to the implementation of the digital event thee IT Department can provide a brief introductory training on how to proceed.

For inquiries to KTH IT Support, contact them at it-support@kth.se .

If a major problem arises during the actual conducting of the digital event, you can contact the IT Department during the daytime on telephone number 08-790 66 00.
