This year’s virtual conference will be using a platform called Whova. Click on the screen above to watch a short video about the Whova platform. If you are already registered for the conference, lick on Get Whova Now link above to connect.
Below are more details about connecting and features of the platform:
- A few days before the conference begins, all those registered for the conference will receive a link for the Whova platform. At that time, you’ll be able to log on using the email address you used when you registered. Only one person can use the email address. You can log on through your computer or laptop or download a mobile app to your smartphone. You’ll be asked to set up a password for your Whova account.
- Google Chrome or Firefox are the best browsers for accessing Whova.
- Once you have logged on to the platform, you’ll be at the Conference home page. There will be links on the side of the home page, just like a web site. You’ll be able to click on the Agenda page and see all the sessions included for the Conference and even create your own Personal Agenda by selecting the sessions you plan to attend.
- On each day of the Conference, you will log on and go to the general Agenda page or your Personal Agenda page. A few minutes before each session begins, the link will be active and you will be able to click on the link and join the session.
- As each session ends, you will follow instructions to move to the next session or you can also go back to the Agenda pages.
- On the Attendee page, you can add any information you wish to add to your profile.
- You can use the chat feature in Whova to post questions and chat with other attendees.
- You can post topics for discussion in the Community Bulletin Board and respond to topics posted by others.
- Sessions will be recorded and posted on the Whova platform for several months after the conference ends so you can go back and watch the videos.
- No foul language – Participants are asked to refrain from using foul, hurtful, or incendiary language when in public forums such as the Whova community bulletin board and session chat features.

- Shared media must be appropriate – Whova allows participants to share photos on public forums. Shared media cannot be indecent in nature, nor may it depict violence, drug-use, or nudity.
- No “Doxing” – Participants may not share the personal information of other participants or unaffiliated parties including but not limited to the participant’s full name, address, workplace, phone number, or email address without the express consent of that participant or person.
- No harassment – Participants are asked to respect the experiences of other participants and presenters by refraining from all forms of verbal harassment and disruptive behavior.
- No Spamming – Participants cannot flood chats and forums with repetitive or unrelated content.
- Webcam use must remain appropriate – When participants are able to use their webcams, all materials and actions in view of the camera should remain appropriate (see Shared Media must be Appropriate)
