The meeting will be held at the Mirta Mosconi auditorium of the Cordoba’s Observatory (Laprida 854, X5000BGR, Córdoba, Argentina). In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of people allowed in the auditorium might be restricted according to the government requirements at the time of the event.
Part of the conference will take place on Discord. The Discord server is intended to allow interaction and discussion among congress participants.
Once entered the discord server it looks like this:

The server consists of a collection of text and voice channels (listed on the left-hand side, marked respectively with hash and speaker). Just click on a channel to join it.
You can participate simultaneously in a text channel and a voice channel.
On voice channels, you can listen and talk. On text channels you can read and write messages, as well as share material, such as links, figures and slides, for instance.

Channels for Talks, Workshops and Posters
Each instance in FoF 2021 has associated channels, one for text and one for voice. The channel name is the section identifier. The voice channel also contains a letter indicating the main session to which it is assigned.
We ask participants to be available on the voice channel of their presentation/workshop during the corresponding session. Of course, the discussion can continue at other times….
For example, here we are participating in both the voice channel and the text channel of the posters.
