If the attendee cannot participate in real time, most events are recorded and all attendees registered prior to each deadline (1 hour before the start of the event) will receive any recordings and presentation materials, barring confidentiality or quality issues. Please check on the recording status prior to registering, if there is any doubt of attendance.
