          How to Participate

          After you register for the online symposium, you will be sent a password that will allow you to join using Zoom, a popular web-based video conferencing tool supported by UW. If you haven’t used Zoom before: it is very simple and just requires a quick free download to run on any computer. You will be able to watch presentations and ask questions using the chat feature. Live captioning will be provided for all sessions.
