These questions assume that a delegate has successfully registered for the Faraday Institution Conference, and that you have received and responded to your invitation to join the Faraday Institution Conference workspace on Slack.
If you have not yet registered, please do so.
“I logged on to the Slack workspace but how do I get back to it?”
Go to the workspace.
“I forgot my Slack password?”
Go to the workspace, type in the email address you registered for the conference with, and click on “Get help signing in.”
“I’m in the Slack workspace from another group. How do I switch to the Faraday Institution workspace?”
From your desktop, click the name of the workspace in the top left of your screen.
Choose Switch Workspaces -> Faraday Institution.
“What’s the password to the posters/Early Career Researcher talks/videos?”
The videos and posters being presented at the conference can be accessed from the conference website.
The material is password protected.
You will have received an email containing passwords. For those that registered prior to the 29th October the email was sent on 1st November. Please check your junk mail.
If you cannot find the email, you can obtain the login name and password from pinned posts within the relevant Slack channels.
Passwords for the project spotlight videos, researcher posters, FUSE posters, and flashtalks from our entrepreneurial fellows etc are all the same, and can be found e.g. here #2021_conference-project-spotlights.
Passwords for Early Career Researcher Day talks (accessible to FI researchers only) are different and can be found here #2021_conference-ecr-day.
“Do I have to access Slack to get the Zoom links to live sessions?”
Yes. Signing up to the Slack workspace takes 30 seconds: just type in your name and email address. Each of the Zoom conference session has a different link to access it so Slack provides a useful platform for all delegates to access those, as well as the place to facilitate discussion with others.
Zoom links can be accessed here:
“I’m in Slack but what do I do next?”
The Faraday Institution workspace is organised into channels. These are listed on the left side of your screen.
