There will be a Zoom link to listen in and to present. However, during discussions, technical limitations due to microphone reach in the hall etc apply. We strongly recommend in-person participation. The Observatory Days are meant to facilitate plenty of free discussion and therefore have long breaks, which is not possible to share on-line. If you want to participate on-line, we recommend you download the Zoom Client beforehand, it works on desktop computers, phones, and tablets.
