We connected the two meeting hubs using the EVO system, a free, cross-platform video-conferencing system.
Below are the instructions that were posted to access the EVO feed. Some of that information is still current and useful in establishing an EVO account and joining a meeting.
Preparing to use EVO to connect to the sessionsBefore you can connect to an EVO meeting, you must obtain an EVO account. Do not wait until the day of the session because EVO registrations can take up to a day to establish. To register for an account, simply use the Register button on the front page of the EVO website. Accounts are free.
Once you have an EVO account, use the Start EVO 2.0 button on the EVO website as shown in the image at right. This will download a Java webstart applet to your computer. Run this applet and it will download the EVO application (called Koala).
If you have never used EVO before, you may want to experiment with it first (before the meeting), in order to familiarize yourself with the controls and options. The EVO site has a useful EVO FAQ as well as a full user manual.
Please see the section below for information about how to connect to the actual session.
Session connection information
We have prescheduled EVO sessions for the days of the workshop. The schedule on the main workshop page lists the expected session times. The session password is "SBML" (without the double quotes).
On the days of the actual meetings, the session name will appear in the global list of EVO sessions. You will be able to click on one of the session names to connect that day. When you do, you will be asked for a password; as mentioned above, the password is "SBML" (without the double quotes).
