Getting Started with the Conference Platform
Once you have created an account, you can build a personal schedule; just click on the star to add an event. From the home page, view the Full Schedule or view individual courses, or use the left-hand menu to browse by course, date, title, or presenter. As you scroll through the agendas, click a listing to view details about a session or presenter. The My Favorites tile on the home page will display your personal schedule.
Please note that adding a session to your schedule does not mean that you are registered for that session or course. The confirmation e-mail you received from firstname.lastname@example.org after registering for ACG 2021 will list courses/events that you have registered for.
There is also a universal search bar at the top of each page for keyword searching across the entire site -- search for specific terms, speakers, titles or session descriptions.
Livestream and On-Demand Sessions
Live-streamed sessions will be broadcast on the Conference Platform. All registrants can use the platform to access presentation slides and on-demand content (based on course registration) until March 31, 2022; presentation slides will remain available on the mobile app after March 31, 2022.
Information on how to join a livestream session will be available closer to the meeting.
Connecting with Other Attendees
Additionally, the platform offers extensive networking opportunities through its My Experience feature, providing the ability to connect via text or video chat with other attendees based on shared areas of interest. And based on a user's Profile selections, the platform will also recommend presentations, sessions, and exhibitors of interest.
ePoster Hall and Virtual Exhibit Hall
The Conference Platform is also home to the virtual exhibit hall and the ePoster Hall, both opening in October.
Additional content, educational and industry-sponsored presentations, exhibitors, and special events will be added to this site in the coming months, so continue to check back.
