No. Only selected people on the Datawrapper team will be able to see your entered information in an unsummarized form. We ask you about your location, organization, etc. in the registration form so that we can
- get a better sense of who’s attending Unwrapped, and can communicate some summarized stats to the speakers beforehand, too.
- share a few summarized stats (maybe even charts!) about who’s attending during the conference.
- share only important information with you. If you’re telling us you’re a pro Datawrapper user, we probably won’t send you the reminder about our intro session.
When you enter the conference stream, you will be able to enter your name and organization freshly.
Yes, all talks will be recorded – but it might take a few weeks before they show up on our Youtube channel.
No, you can keep your pyjamas on: Your video and audio won’t be shared at any time. That said, you can chat with other attendees (and for that, we’ll ask for your name when you enter the conference). Some of your chat messages – especially if you ask questions – might be displayed for everyone in the video conference and show up in the recorded talk.
Simply register, and you’ll automatically get information about new announced speakers, the agenda, how to attend the conference, and more.
