Topical/Vertical Sessions

Proposals in the Vertical and Topical Areas should complement the conference program and not conflict with topics already covered by our Symposia. Proposals should address: suggestions for speakers (all speakers will be invited – no papers), panel discussions, roundtables, presentation sessions on focus topics, demonstrations of novel or important technologies, and events with other formats that may be effective for furthering the involvement and participation of the attendees.
