We are very excited about this additional feature wherein we will showcase, in virtual format, the latest research and developments from participating industry leaders, government organizations, and academic institutions.

The showcase will highlight outstanding technical and consumer-led innovation from the industry with participation from senior technologists and managers. These video presentations are web-based, allowing registered delegates access before, during, and after the conference for viewing at any time.

Authors will be able to interact with participants to discuss their research during the mid-morning and afternoon breaks.

Be a part of this innovative approach to sharing technical discoveries!
