Many eReaders offer the ability to highlight or annotate the eBook. We suggest that you use this feature to mark the sessions or individual presentations that you would like to attend. The contents of the book are arranged chronologically; so as you add highlights, the annotation panel of the reader will display an abbreviated listing of whatever you highlighted. The devices and software listed above differ in how much detail they display in the annotation panel. If you are using a Kindle – which displays quite a lot of detail – we suggest that you highlight the date, time, location, and title of anything interesting. In other readers – which may offer a very abbreviated annotation panel – you might just want to highlight the title or speaker’s name.

The eBook Table of Contents (provided in all versions) allows you to easily browse the sessions of the Annual Meeting. Hyperlinks facilitate navigation within the book without using the Table of Contents. Some devices or applications may not allow the use of hyperlinks. If you are unable to use the links, you may want to download the Stanza (EPUB) version which does not contain hyperlinks.

We hope that you enjoy this new way of exploring the Annual Meeting.
