How can you participate in the technical program? While the deadline for the Call for Proposals and Abstracts has passed we are still happy to hear any unique out-of-the-box session ideas you may have. Do you have a great idea for a discussion panel or roundtable session? Maybe it is a topic that you have never seen addressed and you have an idea for how to bring it to life.
