Virtual Platform Browser (Watch a video tutorial on login & basic navigation.)
The #AGS21 Virtual platform works best with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers. The virtual meeting platform will work with Safari (or other Mac browsers like Brave or Edge) however, the layout might not look 100% right on them. You cannot use Internet Explorer for the virtual platform.
Review the Annual Meeting Program in the Educational Program tab. You can filter by session type (e.g. plenary), day, time, track (e.g. research) or search by key word (e.g. dementia) or speaker name. If you see a session you like, click “Add to playlist” in the right-hand corner of the session. From there, you can create a playlist. You can view your full playlist in the Playlist tab at the top of the conference platform.
Chat with Presenters (Watch a video tutorial for chat.)
Make the most of your AGS21 virtual experience and take advantage of our chat function! You can use our chat to interact with session speakers and other participants in those sessions. Symposia, Workshop, Paper Session and Poster Session presenters will be available during the scheduled session time, and will answer questions through the chat feature. Plenary Session speakers will answer questions that attendees posted in the Chat Feature live on-screen at the end of their sessions.
To use chat, click the “Chat” icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Session View screen. A window will open in the bottom right corner of the page. Then click “Join Chat”. You may view any messages entered in the chat and you can enter your own message. Please know, that moderators and speakers will only be monitoring the chat when the session is in progress during the AGS Annual Meeting. If you are viewing a session on-demand, chat is not available.
