Social Networking at ICMD2009
Conferences are tremendous networking events, and modern technology-based social networking applications can enhance the opportunities for organisers, delegates and speakers to interact before, during and after the conference.
The 3rd International Conference on Movement Dysfunction is using Twitter, LinkedIn and has its own ICMD blog to improve communications around the event. We hope you will make use of these opportunities to get the most of this important meeting.
The ICMD blog will keep you updated with preparations for the conference. It will also bring you LIVE UPDATES throughout the conference, so if you are unable to attend but would like to hear what is going on visit the site as the conference is running.
LinkedIn is a social networking website designed to connect professionals. A conference group has been set up for ICMD2009.
If you are already a member of LinkedIn, please join the ICMD2009 group. You will receive updates on the programme and social events at the conference and have the chance to comment on the event and interact with other delegates and speakers.
If you are not yet a member of LinkedIn, signing up is easy and free at www.linkedin.com.
Twitter is an online micro-blogging platform. It allows you send short messages of 140 characters to other Twitter users or to the wider Web community. Registered users can choose to follow the posts (called “tweets”) of another user.
Twitter is being used by conference participants to share their thoughts instantly with their colleagues and by organisers to keep delegates informed about social events, changes to the programme and schedule. Delegates and speakers are encouraged to sign up, and share their opinions, questions and news with their colleagues.
