This year our conference will be held on a virtual event platform, Boomset. We’re excited to offer this new format with virtual presentations, opportunities for engagement and more!
Sign in to Boomset.
The “Join the Event on May 5” link in your registration confirmation email will take you to Boomset where you will be prompted to enter the email address you used during registration. Select Continue and Request a new PIN. A pin will be sent to your email address. Your pin is your Boomset password, so be sure it save it.
We recommend you sign in to Boomset before the day of the event to set up your account and review your session selections.
If you will be a speaker at the conference, you will access the platform similar to all attendees.
Once you are in the event, select the Sessions tab to view a list of the sessions. Next to the sessions that you've been tagged as a speaker for, you should see text stating "You are a speaker for this session."
Select the session. Prior to the starting time of the event, you will see "Start Rehearsal", meaning that your streaming will not yet be visible to attendees. You may use the countdown bar below the video to see when the session will go live to attendees. If you see "Start Broadcast" when first entering the session, it means the session has begun and that attendees will see your video when you log on.
Start navigating the platform.
The Boomset event page will give you an abbreviated preview of all upcoming sessions, including the Information Desk session which will run in the background all day and is there for you to pop in and ask questions.
The Sessions page, located in the navigation menu contains the entire schedule for the day and indicates which sessions you plan to attend.
All presenter biographies live on the Speakers page in Boomset.
The speech bubble icon located in the top menu in Boomset allows you to connect and network with other participants through one-on-one conversations.
Selecting the accessibility icon from the top menu in Boomset provides settings and other accessibility features. Live captions by human transcriptionists will be provided for each session. If you have a disability and require additional accessibility accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
