How it worked
We used Zoom and Jitsi (as used in UEA’s recent Virtual Congress).
NOTE: Zoom needs to be installed (free) beforehand. Jitsi will run on any modern browser on a computer, but if you plan to use it on a tablet (eg, an iPad) you will need to have the Jitsi app (also free) installed.
One interesting idea was for local groups to organise physical meetings where they can participate collectively, at least for part of the congress.
