This year's SWIB will be held on the web, and we invite you to take part in this experiment. Plenary and face-to-face discussions as well as group meetings will take place in the open source messaging platform Mattermost. Presentations will be streamed live, workshops will be held with BigBlueButton (BBB).

SWIB20 Mattermost is open from now on til the end of December. Within Mattermost, you will be able to chat or start BBB video calls with other participants, or to come together in topic-specific groups and organize breakout sessions.

Participation is free of charge. Please use our ConfTool system to register now for this year's conference, and optionally for a workshop. Your Mattermost account will be created automatically, and you will receive an email with the login details:
