Chatrooms available at APNIC 19

Chatroom (groupchat)



This chatroom is used to stream live transcripts of selected sessions. There is no chat in this room.


This chatroom is used for discussions related to the meeting session that is video streamed live.

You can follow the session live via the video stream or the live transcripts while giving your input via the room1 chatroom.


Some APNIC sessions are run in parallel. When this is the case, one room is not video streamed or available via live transcripts.

However, you can have input in such sessions by using room2. To do this, download the presentations for the session and follow the messages in the room2 chatroom that tell you which slide is currently being presented. Any questions or statements you add to room2 will be read out in the session.
