Understandable – I won’t ever fly overseas for a conference.

We will do the same as last year, use BigBlueButton for sharing the 
presentation and camera & microphone for the presenter, sometimes an 
additional camera for the room or showing stuff. (No recording, no 
general room camera.)
Someone will watch the chat and relay questions.
We’ll project remote presenters to the screen and use speakers.
Discussion between local and remote participants is always a bit 
difficult, we’ll try again with microphones.

But, also like last year, we have only a household DSL connection. That 
doesn’t limit remote participants, but the locals should not use the 
system as well. I also can’t guarantee that everthings works – last year 
we had big problems with the local DHCP/router.
