This year, we will be using a digital program platform called Sched. Here is the link for SEALS 31 Sched Program. Please note that you must be a registered attendee to be able to access the Zoom links.

Sched offers a number of convenient options that we invite you to take advantage of, including:

  • Creating a profile to network with other participants and give feedback on presentations/events
  • Creating a personalized schedule of conference talks/events that you want to attend 
  • Filtering conference events by type, topic, and other filters
  • A mobile app to keep up with conference events on your phone (for in-person attendees)

This guide is intended to make using Sched easier for all attendees of SEALS 31. If you have any questions or concerns about anything related to Sched or the conference program not addressed in this guide, please contact us by email at

Please click the links below to be taken directly to the Sched guidelines. For presenters, please add your bios to your Sched profile by 10 May 2022.

Sched Guidelines for Presenters

Click the links in blue to access more information on each step from the Sched website.

Editing your presenter profile

  • Presenters will be given access to create their own Sched profiles, to which you should add a photo and current bio. You should expect to receive an email invite from us to log in to Sched as a speaker.
  • Follow the link in the invite email to set up your Sched profile password. Then go to your settings page to add a photo and update your profile.

Sched tutorial: Upload presentations and files

  • Once you log into your profile, you will see that your session has already been created as part of the Sched program, and your profile (and that of any other presenters/authors) has been linked to your session.
  • You can add files such as handouts and presentation slides to your sessions. [*Please note, presentation zoom links will be added directly by the SEALS committee.] Attendees will be able to download attached files on the event’s website and mobile app. Files can be any type, and have a maximum file size of 50MB. The file name will be visible, so make sure to name the file something clear and readable.
  • Include a link to presentations on Google Slides or Dropbox in the session description.

    • Please make sure to keep your bio professional, and refrain from using offensive language.
  • Change username and password
    • If you want to change your username and/or password, you can do so under your account settings.
