Congress website resources
The Congress website is being updated all the time. Here is a summary of what is available:
Latest social media activity
We have a team of people who have volunteered to keep our social media campaign humming. In fact it is explod-ing. See tomorrow’s Bulletin for some statistics. Some delegates will be live tweeting from the sessions, others posting material on Facebook and some will even be writing blogs. So go to the website and click on your platform of choice to follow all of the action that you can’t get to yourself.
We will also be posting the presenta-tions from the sessions as soon as we can on SlideShare, and photographs on Flicker. Later in the Congress we will have some video material coming on line.

All plenary sessions will be blogged. Keep coming back to this page for the latest reporting.
