- Should your presentation include a panel discussion, your submission must demonstrate that there is sufficient time for discussion and interaction with fellow panelists and an audience Q&A.
- Panel discussions are not a time for show and tell, rather a time to discuss emerging technologies, trends, lessons learned, challenges faced, and how they can be addressed.
- Preference will be given to panel discussions that include multiple institutions and diverse perspectives.
