How to Participate


All Virtual Philosophy, Psychology, and Informatics Group seminars will be held online through live video conferencing. We encourage all participants to use a webcam and microphone to develop a sense of online community. Sessions will be delivered online via Zoom, which is free for users.

Zoom Session Etiquette

In order to facilitate an atmosphere conducive for an online learning environment, we suggest observing the following guidelines.

  • Use headphones instead of computer speakers.
  • Mute the microphone upon joining each session.
  • Raise a hand to ask a question during Q&A.
  • Raise an index finger for a follow-up.
  • Send in the chat the title of articles or papers.


When speakers share their screen, to avoid video obstructing the presentation, we suggest enabling “Side-by-Side Mode” by doing the following once the presentation has begun.

  • Select “View Options”.
  • Choose “Side-By-Side Mode”.
