Virtual User Conference September 2022

We will be holding a Virtual User Meeting on September 21-22, featuring a mixture of sessions from product specialists and research institutions.

Request recordings

This user meeting is aimed primarily at clients in the North American region, but will also feature some sessions geared toward clients in EMEA who were not able to make our in-person event earlier in the year.

Please register for each day that you are interested in attending, but feel free to join at the session times that interest you. Don’t worry if you can’t make a session on the day: we’ll email you a recording of sessions you’ve signed up for following the event.
