Registered participants in the 2021 conference can view the full documents submitted for the conference by logging in to their Whova accounts and using the "Documents" link on the left-hand side of the home page to move to the page holding all of the accepted document-only submissions to the conference.  The PRE-recorded session submitted to the conference can be viewed using the "SessionsToGo" link on the left-hand side of the page.  The recordings of live sessions are stored in several separate ZOOM accounts; WSSA is working to consolidate them all into a single account which attendees will be able to access, but there are some technical difficulties with the process, so it may still be a while before those are availble.  When they become available, that will be announced here, and on WSSA's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/wssapage
