HDSA will be providing a live videostream of the Opening Ceremony, the Research Forum, and a selection of workshops so you can participate from your home, or organize your own “satellite convention” – gather together with other members of your local HD community and watch as a group.

This year we will be video streaming two workshops simultaneously so there will be two “video rooms” to choose from. Please see below for the URL for each session. All times are Eastern Time. The entire HDSA Convention Schedule is on the national website at: www.hdsa.org/conv2013schedule.
