@ioa Great news!
I see it’ll be hosted on Twitch; does that require non-free software? It would be great to offer a free-software-only option such as Jitsi or BigBlueButton!
Good suggestion, Ludovic! Last time Twitch was chosen because of issues with Jitsi and large meetings (>100 people expected), and I don't think anyone knew about BigBlueButton (just found out, thank you).
Perhaps the local organiser @phoe can say more to this?
I hope to see you at ELS2021, Ludovic! :)
We're evaluating the different technologies - we've been thinking about Jitsi or some of its variants, but we'll need to think about acquiring proper hardware for a conference that can take up to hundreds of possible viewers. Do you know any resources that could be helpful here?
