Over 50 high quality technological topics will be presented in four parallel sessions. This will allow you to choose specific topics of your interest. Each day will start at 8AM and end around 4:30PM. Presentations will vary from 30 to 45 minutes. There will either be three or four presentations at a time, depending on the number of papers submitted.
