  2. Select “Sign in” in the upper right corner. (If you are not logged into Zoom, you will see a “Register” button).
    1. Log in with the same email account you used to register for the conference or you will be asked to register again.
    2. If you used a UW account, be sure to select “SSO” on the login screen and enter the domain “uwmadison” (all one word, lowercase) to be brought to a NetID login.
  3. Click on the blue “Join Lobby” button to access the event and all of the sessions.
    1. If you have the desktop version of Zoom installed, you should see a pop-up asking you to open the desktop client. If a pop-up doesn’t appear, click “Join Lobby” to open the Zoom desktop client. You may need to login again for the desktop client.
