We’ll be using the Periscope live video streaming app to broadcast select sessions from the scientific program via Twitter. The recordings will also be available to watch on our Periscope channel. So if you can’t make one of the recorded sessions, you can catch up on it later. It’s also a great way of sharing sessions with colleagues who aren’t attending the ASM.

We’ll publish times and sessions here and also send out alerts on Twitter using #ASM18SYD. Here are the sessions we’ve confirmed so far:
