Bias-exchange metadynamics

Dear NAMD users,

I would like to perform a bias-exchange metadynamics simulation using NAMD.
I have prepared my colvar and namd configuration files for each of my CVs
(10 colvars) with the help of CVs module reference manuel. However, I could
not find any explanation about how to exchange the biases between the
replicas after a predefined steps of multiple replica metadynamics run.
Should I restart the multiple replica metadynamics by interchanging the
.state files of the replicas?

Thank you in advance for your help.
