The seminars last 75 minutes: 60 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A.

A moderator collects audience questions in the Q&A window. Users can upvote questions asked by others. Clarifying questions get immediately asked by the moderator. The moderator unmutes users to ask the most upvoted substantive questions at various natural breaks during the presentation. The presenter receives a transcript with all questions asked, including the email address of the person who asked.

Besides this, all attendees are muted throughout and videos switched off.
