If you have already joined SALT as a participant, you would have selected the interest groups that you want to join and your name would have been added to the specific chatgroups including SALT-ANNOUNCEMENT.  Information on activities, events, talks, etc, are broadcasted in the SALT-ANNOUNCEMENT or specific chatgroups.  You can sign up for these activities according to instructions given.

Do contact the administrator(s) if you have not been added to your selected interest groups or SALT-ANNOUNCEMENT chatgroups two weeks from your date of submission of LDC and payment.  We will rectify it if you have been inadvertently left out.
