Before the start of the meeting


Join the meeting online

  • On the day of the meeting, please join the Webex room. Try to do this at least 15 minutes before the start of the event.
  • After clicking on the Webex room link, you will be transferred to the login page. On this page, click on the ‘Join’ button. You will then be required to enter some information such as name, e-mail address, and country.
  • If a password is required, please type seedig.
  • If this is the first time you are accessing a Webex meeting, you may be asked to install some Webex components when you join the room. If it is necessary to install these components, please ensure that you have administrator rights for the computer or ask your computer support provider to enable the installation. If you cannot install such components or have trouble logging in, try to click on ‘Run a temporary application’.
  • After login, you have two options to connect to the audio conference:
    • Webex VoIP: Under the ‘Quick start’ tab, click on ‘Call using computer’. Your microphone and speakers will be checked and a warning will appear if they are not detected. If they are well installed, you will see the panel changed to ‘Connected to Audio’. It is advisable to test your audio equipment by clicking on the menu ‘Audio’  –  ‘Computer Audio Settings…’.
    • Via phone: By clicking on the hyperlink ‘All global call-in numbers’ you can see a list of numbers and then select the most appropriate number. Once the number is dialed, please follow the instructions given to you on the phone and then press the access code and attendee ID.
  • Your microphone will most probably be automatically muted when you enter the room. This is to preserve silence in the room and avoid background noise during the session.
  • To see the list of participants, as well as the video of the room, click on ‘Participants’.
  • Once the sessions start, you can participate in two ways:
    • Via text messages: Messages can be exchanged via the chat facility on the right-hand side (this facility may need to be enabled by clicking on the upper right-hand corner button ‘Chat’). It is possible to send individual messages by selecting the required recipient(s) from the drop-down list or to send a public message to the entire list by selecting ‘Everyone’.
      When you are making a comment or asking a question addressed to the onsite participants, please indicate this to the online moderators (they will identify themselves via the chat).
    • Via audio/video: If you want to intervene live, via audio/video, please indicate this via the chat to the online moderators. They will then provide you with the necessary assistance.
  • If you have any problem connecting, please contact us.
