Session Format:
EMERGENT will include 5 different 45 minute long sessions happening over the course of one full day. The event is entirely single-tracked, so there will not be any concurrent sessions. Each session will be presented by 1-3 speakers giving a PPT presentation (other formats may be okay with advance approval) at a podium, panel table, or by standing in front of the audience. Please note there is a strong likelihood that all of the event sessions will be recorded and distributed later on. A couple of panel sessions are okay, although regular training oriented sessions are preferred.

2. Indicate the type of session you wish to present (panel, PPT presentation, Group Activity, etc)
