Frequently Asked Questions

Technical

I can’t access the presentations when I click ‘Watch Live’. What do I do?
We first recommend you check Teams is installed on your computer/device, as the presentations are delivered via Teams. If you are still having difficulties, please contact the ACG.

Communication

Can I have my camera and microphone on to communicate with delegates, session chairs and presenters through Teams?
Please keep your camera and microphone off throughout the duration of the event unless the session chair invites you to turn them on.

Can I chat with people online?
The Caving 2022 platform does not have a chat function, however, you can chat with online attendees via Teams. Please ensure you select who your message will be sent to before sending, as the default setting is to message all attendees.

How do I contact a sponsor?
Click ‘Sponsors’ in the menu across the top of the event page. Clicking on the sponsor’s logo will take you to their profile where you can find a form to contact the sponsor.

How do I submit a question to a speaker?
You can submit questions to a speaker during the question and answer time at the end of their presentation. Please type your question in the chat box on Teams and ensure that you are sending it to everyone so that the speaker, session chairperson and the event audiovisual team can see the question. Please type your question into the chat box before the question and answer session commences as the session chair will select questions in advance.
