If you're looking to register for the February 2023 #BCTConf Main Conference, that is a separate event for which you can register here. (Don't worry, once you enter your personal information once, you won't have to re-enter it a second time.)
Where can I find/view the track schedules?
On the Agenda tab. The default view displays all of the tracks; select a specific track to view only that track's session.
Is there a notebook available for the Preconference?
No, there is not a notebook, but there will be a printed handout with notes. All in-person attendees will receive a copy of the notes upon registration; all attendees will have access to the digital notes.
Where can I find the digital notes for the Preconference?
At least two weeks before the start of the conference, three PDFs will appear in the Documents tab of this event portal (but they will only be visible to those who have registered).
Two of the PDFs will contain all of the notes for your track's sessions, one with the blanks filled in and one with the blanks unfilled. Download the file of your choice to to print your notes in advance or to save to your favorite note-taking app (here's a short tutorial video explaining how to use a PDF Digital Markup Tool).
The other PDF will contain links to all of the digital fill-in versions of the notes (test out this sample digital fill-in-note complete with a simple tutorial). Bookmark that PDF so that you can quickly find the notes you need.
You decide which type of type of digital note works best in your workflow.
Where can I find the Preconference live sessions and/or on-demand videos?

The Resources tab of the VEO will contain all of the on-demand videos available for your track sorted alphabetically. Use the search field to quickly and easily find selected videos.
