Subject Re: Teleconferencing options for speakers who cannot attend
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 07:59:29 GMT
Honestly (and sorry to say), if I attend a conference and pay the full

the same room as me. I can watch youtube videos without wasting my
money. I am not the conference expert, but I doubt there are (many)
other conferences using remote presentations.
