A confirmation email will be sent upon beginning and completing a submission proposal. This email will contain an ID and Password which will grant you access to update Side Panel Information so please save these emails.
Recordings: Side Panel discussions offer the option to record. The panelist(s)/presenter(s) must be added to the people step of the form if a supplementary file will be presented during the panel. Adding this person creates an entry to upload to in advance.

One uploaded supplementary File is permitted for each panelist/speaker which can be uploaded online or in the speaker ready room. This entry will be associated with the Panelist/Presenter's name only.
