A well-moderated introduction is half the battle: The academic quarter of an hour which in the analogue makes events start with a generally accepted delay has not yet established itself in the digital setting. Digital meetings usually start on time, chatting opportunities should be identified in the programme (e.g., as "digital breakfast" or "digital coffee break") and should be moderated. An agreement should be made at the beginning of the oﬃcial programme on how to communicate with each other throughout the session (via chat, via direct requests to speak...?). Furthermore, an announcement should be made on how much self-responsibility will be given to the participants in the event: Besides dealing with short "bio-breaks" (is it okay to leave the meeting for another tea at any time?), this also means: Are the participants listeners or co-creators of the meeting? If you want to start the conference in an activating way, we recommend starting with a participatory programme item (e.g., Impromptu Networking).
