Creating a session

After you have set up your online program settings, you can create a session.

The guidance below is for event administrators/ organisers. If you are an end user (eg. submitter, reviewer, delegate etc), please click here.

NB: Go to Event dashboard → Conference → Program Builder

You can create a session by clicking on the default session or, to add a new session, click  Add Session button.

NB: The default session will only show if you have added a start date in Event details.
