ITU provides interactive remote participation services for ITU-R Working Party and Task Group meetings. This service allows experts to
actively participate during relevant meeting sessions of these Groups. Note that, in line with guidance provided by the Radiocommunication Advisory Group, interactive remote participation is not provided for Study Group meetings.
Through remote particpation, delegates will see a video feed of the meeting room, see documents projected on screen during the meeting, hear what is being discussed and be able to interact by asking for the floor and being heard by all participants, for example to introduce a contribution or make a presentation.
While the Secretariat will make every effort to facilitate active remote participation, it should be recognized that on some occasions this may not be possible due to factors such as: some meeting rooms not being suitably equipped; the limited number of support staff and many parallel meetings; and the need for remote participants to have a high quality internet and phone connection.
Also please note that Webcasts are available for all Study Group, Working Party and Task Group plenary sessions. Participants who only wish to listen to these meetings are encouraged to use the webcast facility. Links to the webcasts are available on the web page for relevant Group. There is no need to register for a meeting to use the webcast facility, however a TIES account is required.

Remote participants should contact the Counsellor responsible for the relevant Group, to determine if remote participation facilities can be made available during the desired session(s) of the meeting and to coordinate their remote participation requirements.
Please contact the Counsellor at least one month prior to the meeting.
