The congress will take place inside the Facebook group, Polyglots (The Community) or straight to the main website www.thepolyglotcommunity.com. As it’s entirely online the speakers will be at their place and using the new available tool called “Facebook live” will deliver his/her speech.

Each presentation will last 60 minutes, after we will open 30 minutes for questions to be answered online, after more 30 minutes will be open for light talks delivered by the attendees adding their own perspective or experience about the topic. So the presenter will have only to prepare 50-60 minutes.

We are preparing a schedule that will be available on PDF and HTML version where people can be online to watch the live presentation. We have 3 days, 72 hours available, so you can choose the best time according to your time zone (I just need to know where you are, so that I can put it in 4 main time zones).

We are 26,000 members in the group so they will be informed about the events. During these 72 hours only the presenters will be able to post things, so that we can keep yourselves more focused on the Congress.

  1. It is possible to register to and attend the polyglot conference and the polyglot gathering without account…. and then one needs a an account for polyglotcongress.? … a Facebook account (!)… quite bad style from my point of view.

    Leave building wallls to presidents.

    No offense :-)… just a feedback. I hope that your initivative works out.

    1. Hi Martin,
      Thanks for your precious feedback. You are right, the Gathering and Conference don’t need a facebook account, coz they happen in the real world, but be aware that you have to pay to take parte either in the conference and Gathering. As this is a completely free of charge event, the best platform we found was Facebook Live, so it’s not the registering, but the event itself, everything was on facebook, we are creating a Youtube Channel with the presentations.
      If you allow me a suggestion, even if you don’t like facebook, create an account with no personal things, there are plenty of things happening there. We keep the largest Polyglot Group called “Polyglots (the Community)” where lots of things are taking place. Facebook can be invasive, but you can control what you follow.
      Anyway thanks for the feedback, it was very good, maybe if we hold a paid event we will be able to use other platform.
      Jimmy Mello
