The SSSP 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting platform will be released in late July. At that time, all registrants will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access the platform and can begin building a personal agenda of sessions and events to attend. There will be plenty of networking and social opportunities as well. Registrants will be able to invite other registrants and schedule live video meetings throughout the conference. These meetings can be one on one or with up to 30 meeting participants. The program also includes several free unprogrammed timeslots with live video meetings (Zoom links) for those who want to use them.
