Each year, CAST selects part of the program to stream online in real time for those who are not onsite. webCAST includes keynotes and sessions from the conference program. These sessions allow a worldwide audience a small sample of the in-person CAST experience. Sign up for the webCAST mailing list for reminders of the upcoming schedule.


Why watch alone? If you’ve been interested in developing your local community, consider hosting a CAST viewing party to continue the discussion in person with your peers. Some remote attendees set up lunchtime streaming in a conference room at work or relax on their couches in the evening from a more distant time zone. Share your photos and comments with us online through social media.


For those following along at home, social media is an integral part of this virtual conference. Unable to attend CAST in person? Don’t give up the important conferring aspect of this event! Many attendees and industry leaders are active on networks such as Twitter. Follow @AST_News on Twitter and use the hashtag #CAST2016 to engage in the conversation. This year, Claire Moss will be engaging the online audience in real time to bring all of our CAST enthusiasts together.


Even virtual attendees can join in Open Season, submitting questions to the tweet printer at the conference venue. An on site conference staff member collects these questions and submits them to facilitators for inclusion in the streamed conversation.


For a taste of streamed content from past years, take a look at our The AST Videos archive on YouTube.
Mark your calendars for CAST2016 and catch up with us online during the event!
