Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be present on all days of the meeting to attend? No, you don’t have to be present each day to attend the meeting. The schedule has sessions that are “launched” at a certain time, which are on the agenda and also contains live sessions. However, it does take 2-3 days to add the live sessions for on-demand viewing after they takes place. Additionally, there is a list of on-demand sessions that are available for attendees to watch at any time. All sessions will be available on demand until December 31, 2020, so even if you cannot attend one or more of the days, you can still access the educational content and other offerings. Being present on the dates of the meeting allows you to interact and engage with speakers, exhibitors, attendees, and sponsors in real time. Please see the Program Book for the full agenda.
How do I get the most out of this virtual conference? We suggest treating the virtual conference as you would an in-person conference with respect to your calendar and other obligations. Prioritize your time so you can truly be present in the experience and focus your attention on the session in front of you as well as engage with the exhibitors, attendees, and speakers to make the most of the conference. It’s also a great idea to minimize distractions as it’s easy to get distracted. Instead, try to reduce background noise, create a comfortable set up, and get ready to start learning! Attending this virtual conference has huge benefits if you take advantage of everything it has to offer. So, don’t forget to visit the exhibitors, check out the ePosters, start your day with a Yoga class, take part in the Scavenger Hunt, join the Happy Hours, and be a part of a Video Chat Discussion Forum. In addition, you will have on-demand access to all of the sessions until December 31, so you can watch and access as many CE sessions as you would like!
What technology will I need? For an optimal experience we recommend participating from a desktop or laptop computer with broadband wired/wireless access. You will be able to connect to audio via your computer. A webcam is suggested for the interactive components of the conference such as Video Chat Discussion Forums, exhibit booth video chats, or the virtual happy hours. Below are additional recommendations.
Use Chrome (recommended), Firefox, or Safari browsers
Disconnect from a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
Check firewalls. If you are in the office, try another network (some offices have robust firewalls that will block some virtual features)
