Please go to the Information Desk and you will be able to choose from CL sessions with spaces left.
If you want to check your CL choices or remind yourself of them, here's how:
- Find and open your registration confirmation email. If you can't find it, search your mailbox for an email with subject line 'Registration Confirmation'.
