SESSION CATEGORIES FOR SCHEDULING- NEW 2017

When you are submitting a proposal, you will be presented with a new requirement to select at least one of the categories from the two list of categories displayed below.  The categories are used for scheduling purposes only.  Your selection of a particular category has no bearing on whether or not a proposal is accepted.  These new categories are in response to participant/attendee feedback regarding the issue of conflicting session and scheduling.  We will use the selected categories to assist with scheduling in hopes of reducing the number of conflicts.
