I'll be working during many of the sessions. Is there another way to participate in the conference?
Registered attendees who miss live presentations will be able to view on-demand recordings of most sessions while the conference is open. Recordings will be accessible until 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 3rd.
And even when there are no sessions, the event will be open for networking with other attendees using the Hopin messaging and video call tools, and the Expo and Virtual Learning Fair will be open for browsing for the entire 72 hours of the event.
How will I access the conference and sessions I'm interested in using Hopin?
Once you are registered for the conference you should receive a follow-up email from the Hopin platform (from "NEASC <email@example.com>") which confirms that you have been given access to the event itself.
All conference participants (attendees, speakers, exhibitors, etc.) will need to create a Hopin account to take part in the virtual NEASC conference. It's a very quick process - and you can do it at any time. You even have options to sign in with another account (like Google or LinkedIn) if you like.
If you try to access the conference once it is live but have not yet set up your Hopin account, no problem. As a reminder you will be routed to the Hopin sign-up form.
You will be able to enter the conference on the morning of Tuesday, December 1st at 7:00 a.m., and the first scheduled activity starts at 8:00 a.m.
Current sessions can be found using the main navigation toolbar on the right side of your Hopin window once you have entered the event.
Click on the "Sessions" icon, and browse through the list.
Only sessions that are taking place at the time you are browsing will appear, along with those that are scheduled for the entire duration of the event.
You may join a session 5 minutes before it is scheduled to go live.
Sessions will disappear from the list once they are over.

What are the registration options/fees?
To show our appreciation to teachers and administrators who have gone above and beyond to support their students and educational programs during the pandemic, we have decided to offer registration for the conference free of charge.*
*Important - if you have previously registered and/or paid for the conference your registration will also be complimentary. We will reach out to you individually to process any refunds that are due. Please contact Misha Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions related to your registration.
When can I check in for the conference?
We are using a the online event platform, Hopin, to host the conference virtually this year. We encourage you to set up your Hopin account and profile as early as possible after registering for the event, but you will not be able to enter the event until a few minutes before the scheduled go-live time on Tuesday, December 1st at 7:00 a.m. ET.
We encourage you to view some of the support materials provided for Hopin event attendees on our event platform page. Taking some time to become familiar with Hopin and all of its features before the event will help you get the most out of your virtual conference experience.
