Note: There are multiple concurrent presentations during each one hour time block. It is expected that presenters sharing a given time and room will divide the available time evenly (e.g., four presenters each have 15 minutes total for delivering their presentation and answering questions; three presenters have 20 minutes total). Presenters appear in the order expected during the hour.

Those attending a session will be expected to attend for the full hour rather than entering/exiting between presenters. This will minimize disruption and time between presenters. Moderators for each session will be tasked with keeping speakers on time and, if necessary, interrupting a presentation if running long to allow time for all presenters.
