The left-hand navigation controls your movement throughout the platform.

How do I chat with others during a session?

When I join the session, I cannot hear anyone speaking, what do I do?

If you enter a session and see a live presentation but cannot hear the presenter speak, please make sure your speakers and volume are enabled. All of the sessions for this conference are pre-recorded and will begin at the session start time. In this case, you will not hear anyone speaking until the video has started.
