HOW GRONEN VIRTUAL WORKS – All you need to know

GRONEN2020 is hosted on This is the platform linking to all the virtual meeting rooms and live sessions. Imagine it as a virtual conference venue. Shortly before the first conference day, you will receive a personal email with your log-in credentials and guidelines. Then you go to the iChair platform, check-in, and join sessions.

Presenting on iChair pretty much works like presenting on any other video conferencing service you may know. You enter, share your screen, talk. No installation required, all browser-based. Note: please use the latest version of Chrome.

For details please see here and for any questions, please feel free to contact us.
