Webinars are streamed live and the recordings are uploaded to our YouTube channel for future viewing. Presenters are encouraged to upload their presentation materials to our Google Drive so we can make them available to attendees.

Speakers will be notified of our decision regarding proposals within two weeks of the submission deadline.
