If you would like to 'book' into your selected sessions, you will need to log in first. Your account was automatically generated when you registered for the conference - your user name is your email address and you will most likely need to reset your password. If you tick the "Remember Me" box, you won't need to log in again! 

Once logged in, and you visit the Conference Program pages, you'll see a 'Register' button on each session. Clicking on the button will register you for that session, and if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see a list that you can print, or send to your calendar. You'll also get a confirmation email.

You don't need to register, but it is a handy way to keep track of the sessions you're most interested in!
