Lastly, you check off whether you want to be contacted about the conference. This will be in the form of email updates. I clicked on and then it recognized me and welcomed me by name.

Here is the Discussion Forum that will open up in October and has specific themes that will focus on the papers and allow delegates to converse on these subjects.
