Meetecho: The RIPE 83 conference platform

RIPE 83 will take place using Meetecho as its conference platform. You do not need to install a client as it can be used directly in any desktop web browser.
In the week before RIPE 83, you will receive an email with the unique link that you can use to access the event in Meetecho. You can attend all sessions and participate using this link. Please remember that you have to register first to be able to join the RIPE 83 Meeting.


In addition to Meetecho, you will be able to watch the presentations live on the RIPE 83 website and on YouTube. Please note that there is no separate IRC channel. If you want to participate in the discussions and/or ask questions (in writing or using audio), you will have to register for the meeting and join Meetecho.


This is the virtual coffee break area. It’s accessible from Monday, 22 November to Friday, 26 November and it is open for RIPE 83 attendees only.
