THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR

Once again, all peer-reviewed sessions will be recorded for 2020. This is made possible from support from SAGE Publishing. At your first login per day, per browser (in an unlikely scenario you’re changing browsers throughout the day), you will see a short video from SAGE before arriving at the catalog of session videos.
