Call for Abstracts - Tracks

Government, Industry, and academia are encouraged to participate. If you wish to form your own panel discussion, we would be glad to facilitate your needs. Please click on the track topics listed below to thoroughly review the requirements of each track, and determine which track the abstract or panel/training proposal best fits. Please be sure to submit abstracts and/or panel/training proposals within the appropriate track using the links on this page. Abstracts and panel/training proposals should be 200-500 words in length. Do not attempt to submit abstracts or panel/training proposals through any other means. Submitted abstracts will be rated based on clarity, value added to the conference, and how well the topic fits within the track. Abstracts should be public releasable and contain no proprietary information. Please note that the conference planning team may determine that an abstract or panel/training proposal best fits in a track other that what was originally selected by the author.

Listed below are the tracks for more detailed information.
