Online engagement

The conference is not just open and free for anyone who has registered to attend the event in person, but we would also like to offer various online entry points for those who can only engage remotely or just prefer to do so.

Participant-generated content

We encourage participants to use the hashtag #OWLTEH18 when tweeting, tooting, blogging and/or sharing content about the event via any other online platform.
We have also created a SPLOT image collector (i.e. a collaborative photo repository) were participants can share pictures they have taken at the event (or even while engaging remotely from elsewhere!).
