On behalf of the UK CFS/M.E. Research Collaborative (CMRC), Action for M.E. will livestream some of the 2015 CMRC’s annual research conference next Tuesday, 13 October and Wednesday, 14 October via Ustream.

We’ll be broadcasting Plenary Session 2: Widening the Net, which runs from 4.30pm to 6.30pm on Tuesday and includes presentations from Dr Esther Crawley, Prof Fai Ng, Prof Carmine Pariante, Prof Anne McArdle, and Prof Julia Newton. We’ll also be livestreaming Prof Jo Nijs’ presentation on Wednesday, which runs from 9am to 9.45am, along with Prof Jim Horne’s presentation from 1.45pm to 2.30pm.

Unfortunately we cannot livestream every presentation that takes place over the two-day event, as several involve research findings that haven’t yet been published and so are not being delivered to the general public. Information on what times researchers will be speaking at and what research they’ll be discussing can be found in the full event timetable– we’ve highlighted the ones we can livestream in red to make it easier for you.

Watching a livestream of the event is easy – all you need to do is click on this link on the day. We’d suggest bookmarking or favouriting the page in advance so you can find it but don’t worry, we’ll be posting the link again on Tuesday for you.

Once you click on the link, you’ll be taken to the Ustream page where the event will be streamed to – just make sure your speakers are turned on so you can hear what’s being said. There’s no need to register if you just want to watch. There’s a live chat box down the side of the page which will allow you to discuss the presentations with each other, but to use that you WILL need to register. Registration is simple but in case you get stuck we’ve put together a guide on how to register.

An Action for M.E. communications officer will be on hand to moderate discussions and answer your questions where possible but please bear in mind that we do not have the capacity to answer individual questions about the research presentations or the work researchers are doing, nor will we be answering questions that are not related to the conference. We also cannot provide technical assistance if you encounter technical problems or are struggling to use the Ustream website.
