In this extended period of Covid-19 isolation, is there a
videoconference package available?
An even better question would be: Are the others in the conference
likely to have compatible hardware and software? :-).
We just used Microsoft Teams (which I imagine isn't remotely
free, but our work IT department is obsessed with Microsoft).
It was moderately OK, has an unbelievably annoying linux
version: For instance, you can't ever exit, it keeps running forever till
you find it and kill it with extreme prejudice, it insists on
being full screen, but doesn't position the window at (0,0),
it pops up new chat notifications directly on top of the area
you are trying to type in, etc.
I eventually gave up on the linux version and used the android
app on an old tablet I didn't mind contaminating.
